Bet On Anything

Following on from my surprise that betting agencies present their information in a manner similar to other derivative providers I have been doing a bit of trolling around and found that someone is actually making a market on the timing of the discovery of the Higgs boson.

For those not up with the nitty gritty of current theoretical physics the Higgs boson is a hypothetical elementary particle that has been predicted by theoreticians but never observed. The big arsed collider at CERN in Switzerland is tasked with finding this elusive little bugger.

Scientist all went a bit moist in their jocks at the weekend  when new data hinted that it may be found by the end of the year. So I had a look around and found that someone is actually making a market in this event. The folks at Intrade seem to make a market on all sorts of bizarre stuff including the Higgs boson

I have dropped the current chart for betting below.
