New Zealand, the land where naming creativity never ends... Gosh, what a crazy bet that should have been! But, if he's 22 years old now, that means he had 17 when he lost that bet. In Portugal, he would be considered a minor (less than 18) and that would turn the bet illegal... oh, wait, every bet is illegal in Portugal (only lottery and casino games at the casinos, not online). These guys are really living in another world, asking to pay for a bet like this...

Haha love it, the best part is thath he owed up to his debt, that is his losing bet, so big respect to this man. Some would have bailed out saying it was just too silly or something like that. Nice piece of news, keep them coming BRM.
I found myself in similar scenarios sometimes, altough we used to bet on alcoholic beverages, so any damage done at least wasnt permanent. We could afford to think about our livers later in life. Good for this guy, I would really like to look at the face of the officer who will inspect his passport whenever he go to travel from now on.

Heard of that story. There are always tons of stuff to gamble and as we saw your name can make one of them. Think the question remains :What the winner of drunken prop bet was about to do if he lost it?Seriously I do not know how drunk those guys were but just to agree to such bets indicates betting addiction problems. Have never cross limits and never make such decisions being drunk of course.
P.S. Now how his familly gonna call him?Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova the dinner is served!!! May God help them.

Ha Ha...! I don't know if that's funny or absurd,...both I guess...
I was watching Conan O'Brian last night and even HE metioned it and made a few jokes about it...!
They would never allow someone to do that here in Canada,...I've heard of cases before where someone wanted to name their kid some crazy name, and it wasn't allowed,...and here I thought we were one of the free-est nations on Earth... Well, we are in most respects,...and even more so than the 'Land of Freedom' to the south of us...
