I'm in. I'll take 5-year non-obsolescence all day long w/o even
breaking a sweat, and 10-year if the price is right. All bets are
off for 20-year and beyond. With an appropriate definition for "e-
mail" of course. I prefer to denominate such prop bets in Tongan
pa'anga (TOP) if you please, though if pressed will also accept
Polish zlotych (PLN) or Tuvalu dollars (TVD). Palladium dollar-
equivalents (USD) by weight also accepted.
