This one time... We were going through a drive through and my buddy/teammate had an old 20 oz pop bottle in the car. It was half full and old and we needed the room for our drinks, so he said he'd pull up to the trash bin just past the drive through and "throw" the 20 oz bottle through the opening. I looked at the opening and determined it was literally the size of the bottle and that there was exceedingly little chance he'd be able to make the shot. I gave myself a mathematical 99.575% chance to win the bet, so we placed a $1 bet on it. He pulled up, was about 3 feet from the trash can (never getting out of the car) and tossed the bottle by holding just it's cap and letting it fly end over end (i.e. the WORST way to throw it since the opening was only as tall as the bottle - his best chance was to throw it sideways). Well, the half full bottle happened to have all the fluid in the bottom of it when it got to the trash can and somehow shot in to it like a dart at an almost straight downward angle.

While I lost $1, I'm convinced this was a PLUS EV PLAY.

p.s. This is a true story, even though I'm being half funny... and I really am convinced he could never make that shot again in his life. I'd wager anyone just about any amount of money you wouldn't make that shot. He won the damn lottery that day... for $1.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Driving East on Tropicana, someone bet me $10 you could legally turn left onto Paradise. That was +EV for me. Don't think I'll ever let this one down.

Is it only illegal if you get caught? I had a left I needed to make regularly, was illegal, and eventually I got caught, and ticketed, and then they checked for warrants, and then the whole thing went south. I don't turn left there anymore ;-)

One of my favorites is to go to a bar, engage people in a game of trivia. One of my favorite questions is to ask someone, that if you are in Detroit, and driving on the Ambassador Bridge into Canada, which direction are you driving?

The correct answer is South
