So I'm Slashdot the other day and I come across this story about Stephen Hawking making a bet with another physicist in which the winner gets a set of encyclopedias of their choice. No big deal I think and I move on.

I also started A Brief History of Time this week and there is a chapter in which he makes mention of another bet that he made. He made some bet wherein if he wins he gets a subscription to some science magazine, and the other guy gets a subscription to Penthouse. So apparently betting is a big deal in the high up physics circles.
