Nexus people bet on weird things, like election outcomes or the number of mosquitos we can kill on a given day in our pest-infested office.

Today’s lead story is the Los Alamos contract. Apparently there’s a good chance that the University of California is going to lose one of its nuclear laboratories.

So naturally, there’s an office pool.

As your Weatherhuman (and A.S. President in Exile), I plan to use my winnings to bid on the laboratory.

The Daily Nexus hereby registers a bid of $8 toward managing the country’s largest nuclear laboratory.

Thursday’s forecast: Nuclear winter for everyone.
