Armenia Offers Good Odds on Doomsday Bets



MOSCOW, December 11 (RIA Novosti) – So you think the world as we know it has only 10 days left and counting? If you act now, you can win 888 drams per 1 dram with a bet in Armenia.
The 888-to-1 odds on doomsday happening on Dec. 21 were offered on Tuesday by Armenian bookmaker Vivaro, the latest bookie to join the end-of-the-world craze.
Several other online bookmakers are currently taking the same bet, though their odds hover around 500-to-1, which makes the Armenian offer more attractive.
Aptly titled bookmaker Quirkybet.com had offered the million-to-one odds for the 2012 doomsday, but the bet was removed from the bookmaker’s website as of Tuesday evening. It remained unclear whether the bookmaker had any insider information.
Past ends of the world have been known to have attracted a 1,000,000-to-1 bet on at least one occasion in 2008, when the Large Hadron Collider was launched to expectations that it would create a black hole that would swallow the Earth. The bookmaker William Hill earned 119 British pounds ($190) at the time.
Australian bookmaker Sportsbet also offers the opportunity to bet on the exact method of how the Apocalypse will be delivered next week. “Spread of a new incurable killer virus” leads with odds of 21-to-1, while “eaten alive by zombies” is the least likely option with the potential payout of $1,001 per $1 bet. Options on offer also include “another Big Bang,” “engulfed in lava” and “alien invasion.”
None of the bookmakers explained how any winnings are to be collected in a post-apocalyptic world, though Sportsbet admitted it may be problematic.

Since this Friday is doomsday, what are your plans? Did you say your goodbyes to your loved ones? Any last minute requests or wishes? :P

"APOCALYPSE" MAKES ARMENIAN JOURNALIST RICH

Sirince village, which is within the boundaries of Izmir Province in
Turkey and which became known thanks to the efforts by controversial
Istanbul Armenian journalist Sevan Nisanyan, is getting ready for the
"end of the world."

This touristic village is considered as one of the two spots on Earth
that will be saved from "Apocalypse," Sabah daily of Turkey reports.

All the hotels and guesthouses in the village were booked a long time
ago, and the local villagers have made souvenirs and prepared wine
to sell to the thousands of tourists.

It is noteworthy that Sirince became recognized owing to Sevan
Nisanyan, who had built boutique-hotels there and touristic tombs
that were dug into rocks nearby the village.

In response to Sabah's question with respect to the "end of the world,"
Nisanyan just laughed and said Sirince is a nice place and a person
simply feels good there.

Can't be a "She" because she would have predicted right. :)
