Help a fellow techjunkie think of a good bet

A friend of mine (yes it actually is a friend, not me) wants to buy some tech-gadgety-stuff but he says he has to win a bet with his wife first..

you know the kind.. 'if i win, i get to buy a harddrive, if you win i'll rub your feet for a year'.

And he REALLY doesnt want to rub feet for a year, so we need a good bet!

Any ideas?

thats do-able? I dont think they're into that tho

I'm more thinking like 'on next weeks alias sydney will explode from being boring' type bets or balance a quarter on your nose (if there was an easy way to do it)..

Bet that she won't be able to rub your feet for more than half an hour straight (or some other time that sounds reasonable to you). Make sure you execute this bet right after coming home from work one day.

i read a great bet in Maxim magazine (of all places).

Take a professional frisbee, the kind they use in ultimate frisbee games. Ask the person you're betting how long they think they can drink the amount of beer that will fill the frisbee. Most people say two to three minutes or so. However, it'll usually take much, much longer because a frisbee can hold something like 5 or 6 beers. I thought that was a clever bet.

I played on an Ultimate Frisbee team. I know for a fact that a standard weight 175g frisbee can hold 4.5 beers
