This might cause tremblings amongst those who bet against you.... In the unlikely event you do not succeed in the challenge will you pay us or the hospital? You are up to nearly a grand at risk, correct?

Scott, why would you even mention that? Why are you questioning whether I will pay if I lose the bet? You're just causing trouble again.

One has nothing to do with the other. You're trying to stir up trouble. I made a bet and Im going to honor it as should everyone else who made a bet. If I lose I'll pay, there's no question about that. That's rude of you to say that.

They probably hate me cuz the bills are piling up with them but I can't pay. :(

Lucky for you, I pay for my health insurance and the costs of treating you are built in to my premiums ... glad to help out ...

I may be a rabble rouser, but it was not rude. You are making large bets with people on the internet, some of whom have never even met you. YOU stated that you cannot even pay your bills, not me. I am just saying that for those betting against you, that might be of some concern. As I've told you many times, I trust you to pay if you lose. But mentioning financial difficulties does open you up for at least some thoughtful scrutiny.
In my son's challenge, which was basically a bunch of $5 bets, I believe someone questioned whether I would pay. The money you are involved in is far greater.
Hopefully the issue will not come up when you succeed....

I understand what you're saying. But for you to bring it up IS trying to stir up trouble cuz no one said they were concerned unless that was your indirect way of saying you personally are concerned that I won't pay. As I stated before, this challenge is my number one priority from now aaaaaaaalllllllll the way until October 17th. That means this challenge comes first before anything, even if that means that I'll end up living on the streets. And I'm not joking about that. And I would not have taken several days off last week had I known what the consequence on the scale was going to be. This challenge is the most important thing in my life right now. I've never indicated that I wouldn't pay if I lost the bet. If you're questioning whether I'll pay then you're wasting your time cuz you're going to be sitting around for another 6 and half months wondering whether I'll pay and it's nothing you need to lose sleep over. Me paying if I lose is not an issue and you shouldn't make it an issue. My relationship with my hospital bills and everything else in my life is a separate thing. Dr. Phil has said that it's a shame to go through your whole life worrying that something bad is going to happen and then nothing happens. I made a bet and I'm honoring it. Period. I believe in living honorably and being honest and nobody has anything to worry about.

I'm sorry, I'm crabby today. I still haven't gone to the gym yet this week cuz I'm working like crazy trying to catch up on bills and my obligations. I've been feeling cloudy-headed and irritable and I'm hoping it's cuz my body is reversing the "damage" I did to it last week and losing all this extra water weight. It just didn't feel right someone questioning my word when it didn't need to be questioned in the first place.

It's an issue to me and I'm not part of this bet ... I would much rather you pay your medical bills and other debts that are burdens on tax payers before anything having to do with this bet ... for you to put this bet before your obligations as a citizen is sick ...

I'm not planning on ditching my hospital bills. If they make me pay then I will have to pay them, it's just going to take a looooong time to pay them off. When I made my comment yesterday about not paying I am talking about not having the money to pay them now. Most hospitals require you to pay the whole thing up front or as soon as possible.

The University Medical Center in Las Vegas does neither. Most patients never pay their bill, leaving the burden to the taxpayers. I believe most public hospitals are like that, including the USC Medical Center.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Wow, that sucks. If I am required to pay the bill I will. I applied for charity which means I have to show them copies of my bank statements and tell them how much I make, spend, etc. and they determine how much, if anything at all, I will have to pay. When I was hospitalized a few years back they told me I didn't have to pay anything. But other times I went to the ER they set me up on a payment plan.
