Your a trip. Let me lay it out for you since it doesn't look like your going to figure it out yourself. You don't care about being seen as credible on the GV yet you expect others to be credible. See absent your trust you would have immediately recognized the obvious flaws in the claim it was from France. Now you want to be seen as the victim of an unfairness because you can't accept what resulted was of your own making. Guess what, no one who has half a brain is buying into it. All your doing is revealing your true self.
What I'm trying to get across is when you lose you won't honor the bet because I'm sure you've already prepared an out. But if you win your depending on them to be credible and keep their word. Credibility is earned not given. You already know oyu have nothing to lose in the bet and everything to gain.
