Have you ever regret losing a bet to your friends?

Well I'll start off with a bet I've lost a few years ago that I regret. Anyone can give there own personal story, you can keep it short or give detail, but for me I'll give detail..

Basically my friends talked me into a bet to beat Final Fantasy VII. Now before the bet I talked alot of shit about the series. Sense they're both fans of Final Fantasy It pissed them off. So they decided to make a deal with me for shits and giggles. They told me I had two weeks to beat Final Fantasy VII, and if I lose I have to experience any consequence they had in store.

They knew I hated rpgs, but I told them if I win they will have to give me money. So the deal was on I've decided to play Final Fantasy VII, and within two days I gave up playing the game. I hated everything about the game, and I couldn't force myself to play it no more. I actually manage to shock my friends, they thought I would have giving up after three days not two. Apparently they both already talked about what my punishment will be, and they was excited to show me what it was.

One friend had me to watch all the episodes of a anime called Strawberry Marshmallow.

He knew I didn't care to watch anime much, but he thought it would be funny to watch an anime about little girls. So I watched a few hours of the show and I couldn't take it. It was awful and the shit was starting to give me a headache. So my friend decided to give me a break from that show, and let my other friend show me what he had as punishment. Unlike my first friend he was alot more sadistic, and I knew I had to expect the worse sense he likes to disturb me with random stuff, but nothing was going to prepare me for what I was about to see next.

My other friend decided to show me an anime called Boku no Pico. I thought it was going to be like Strawberry Marshmallow, but I was very wrong. The story was about this little boy who looks like a girl, that became friends with this lonely man, and something told me that this wasn't a normal anime. It wasn't until a ice cream scene that I realized I was watching a fucked up gay hentai. I got pissed-off at my friend for showing me this shit, and I didn't want to watch it anymore, but sense I made a bet I had no choice to keep my promise.

So I watched both of the shows, and the longer I watched the worse it got. After that I never made another bet with my friends again. My friends that it was hilarious to see my reaction to Boku no Pico. They was abunch of assholes for that shit.

Years ago (so didnt have a lot of money as I was still at school) played poker round a friends house we were only playing for a few pounds we were about to go out and do something else I was a couple of quid up but not alot. As we were waiting for one of the friends to leave me and another friend had a game of table tennis, we decided to play for 1 pound. A mere 10 minutes later some table tennis and high card games had passed and i owed my friend £184.00.

How far did you make it? Because it gets a lot better once you hit the motorcycle portion. Hell, it gets tolerable a little bit before you re-enact Pretty Woman with Cloud.

Anyway, on topic, no, I haven't been in that position. I've been in the reverse, though. Somebody bet me $5 that I couldn't eat a whole pizza. They now owe me...$358.49 because of it.

No, never.
No matter how dumb the "punishment" has been me and my friends have always had fun with it.

I could make something up though just to get my feelings out on a beloved game, that I don't like at all but I won't even do that.
I did however win a lot of money during the last bet-with-friends thingy I did. Good times

If I can recall I remember getting off this train, and going around this factory fighting enemies. I also remember meeting this women with a white tank top and wearing gloves.

I still have scars from WINNING BMX related bets. May they never heal.

Are you serious? You only made it to the 7th Heaven bar? After a couple of days? That's such an incredibly small part of the game, too.

Samething my friends told me, but I just really couldn't get into the game. The only Final Fantasy game I actually manage to beat was 13.

@falserelic:

You didn't even give it a chance, though. You made it past the first dungeon and said "Fuck this game". (Also, how did you manage to finish FF13 but not 7? Don't they have the exact same pacing?)

I found 13 to be more interesting. I borrowed it from a friend who wanted me to play it, and he gave me a strategy guide. So I sat down played it and I actually enjoyed it. Probably because I found the game to be more tolerable then VII, sense it was more up to date.

I make sure I know what I'm getting into first when making a bet so if something does fuck up I'll just deal with it.

No, because I don't make bets.

So basically, what you're telling us is that you're easily goaded into doing stuff?

Most bets I've done in recent memory were pretty insignificant. The last bet I lost was with my friend that if he uploaded this hilarious (and humiliating) photo of another friend and tagged him in it I'd give him $20 of video game credit on a system of his choice. I now owe him $20 in Wii U credit.

No, at the time I wanted to prove I could handle a rpg game, but in the end that didn't turnout well at all.

My friends don't make demands like that of me, because they know I'm too stubborn. Or they don't exist. Hmmm.

Well, at least you know it'll get put to good use...

My friends can be strange sometimes. They can get easily annoyed when I make fun of their obsession with anime, rpgs, or the Japanese culture. So they like to get back at me by showing weird stuff, or have me tryout something.

Nope. There is a saying. Of the two people that make a bet, one is a fool, the other is a scoundrel. So far i've always been the scoundrel.

And who makes a bet for unspecified terms anyway? You only got yourself to blame on all fronts. Hopefully it was be a learning experience, so take it away as a positive.

Yeah I've learned that lesson along time ago, always know what I'm getting myself into.

I usually don't bet anything. Me and my friends are not fans of it.
