You're changing the story *again*? Surely you jest. You offered a bet
on another of your tests, claiming it was set such that you couldn't
back out once it began. Brad accepted that bet. You then tried some
sort of side bet, which he rejected. You acted as if that meant he'd
backed out of the test and original bet, at which point he made it clear
that he hadn't, and had in fact started the test. You then proceeded
with the test, demonstrating that you understood the bet was still in
force. Partway through the test, you read a thread that clearly
indicated you shouldn't read it (because of your repeated whinges about
your magic powers getting "distracted"), and as a result you threw a
tantrum and quit. You owe Brad $1000. You know it, I know it, everyone
who cares to read the relevant threads knows it. Nobody *really*
trusted you before, but now, instead of a suspicion that you wouldn't
follow through on your promises, we have proof that you're a liar and a
fraud. You have no honor. Nobody trusts you.
