      Hhhhmmmmm, kind of puts a whole new meaning on commodities. The other futures are based on tangible, resellable itmes which have some demand.

      Looks like the Chicago Trading Board has gotten jealous of the Vegas sports book.

        The future for snow in DC is meltage. (is that a word? no? well, it is now!)

        Gotta love DC, 10" of snow on Saturday, balmy by Wednesday.
