    Cool Would you take this bet?

    This is a thread where you post a theorhetical bet to the forum and they have to answer whether they would take the bet or not. Then you get to create a bet!

    Numero uno:

    You versus a Trex. Battle to the death!

    Equipment: 5 grenades and an AK-47 with unlimited ammo. You do have to reload after a clip.

    Terrain: Your choice non-urban no more than 5 square miles.

    Prize: $1,000,000

    Ye or Nay?
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Realistically an AK-47 with unlimited ammo would destroy a T-rex, you could even start it 50 yards away and I'd feel fine.
    Whoops.

    Well you'd have to eventually add more ammo, and those guns get REALLY hot.. the time you spend fumbling with that may be one large step for T-rex. End game.

    Plus the aim on AK-47 is generally crappy, but, I suppose precision doesn't matter with such a large target.

    I'm not incredibly confident of that...

    It's not bullet proof like some video game, it'd probably also run away as soon as you started firing.

    Not bullet-proof, no. But the question is could you kill it? I'd be incredibly skeptical as to whether that could be lethal to an animal as large as a Tyrannosaurus, at least before it turned you into a snack if it decided to not run away. The 7.62x39 isn't even as strong as a .308, which I'd still be somewhat hesitant to trust it's effectiveness in this situation. And despite having unlimited ammo, you only have as much time as it takes the T-rex to eat you. Hunting a T-rex I'd want something that shot a .50BMG at least, preferably something even stronger, maybe of the vehicle-mounted or high-explosive variety.

    Anyways, I know I could be wrong, I'm just voicing my opinion. I would not take the bet, but I sure would pay to see someone else attempt that... It would be interesting regardless of the outcome.

    I'd take that bet. Having a the skull of a T-rex that you killed at your place would be pretty badass. The money aint bad either.

    Ye. I would shoot at the knees, throw a grenade, reload, wash, rinse, and repeat. A T-Rex is nothing without legs! Having accomplished that, I would put up the $1.00 (sic) prize and double it for somebody to kill the monster that cannot be killed: Ted Danson...I can't stand that dude for some reason. So I propose numero dos:

    You vs. Ted Danson

    Equipment: Neilsen Ratings, Cable TV, Direct TV, Dish Network

    Terrain: Your TV

    Prize: $2.00
    Can you kill him...yea or nay?
    I'm never wrong, I'm just sometimes less right

    I'd take that bet, but only if I can take down Chevy Chase, in the process.
