    I know there is already an off-topic Donald Trump thread. He is now on-topic. Who knew?

    Forget the American electorate. Donald Trump’s biggest fan may be a British businessman who likes to play the odds.

    John Mappin, a media investor who owns Camelot Castle in Cornwall, has placed more than 15 wagers, totaling more than £2,000 (or $3,100), that Trump will secure the Republican presidential nomination, if not win the presidential election outright. Depending on the type of bet (nomination or presidential victory) — and the odds at the time it was placed — the payoffs range from 7-to-1 to more than 30-to-1. If Trump indeed becomes president and Mappin wins every bet he’s made, he stands to collect at least £40,000 (or $62,000).

    As for Mappin, the Trump bettor, he’s almost as colorful and controversial a character as the man he’s predicting will become president. Mappin says his family once earned a fortune in the British silver trade. And he’s now put his money to use by buying Camelot Castle — in the locale from where King Arthur hailed, Mappin notes — and turning it into a hotel of sorts, a kind of Downton Abbey that’s open to the public. Mappin is also well known as a member of the Church of Scientology.

    Aside from placing big bets on Trump, Mappin is hoping to connect with the candidate in other ways. He’s planning on launching a television channel from his castle and producing a program interviewing celebrities and other prominent figures. Trump is on the must-have list. “I have extended an outreach,” Mappin says.

    Well, if the shoe fits.

    If LRH could come back, why go through the hassle of being born, growing up, going to school (ugh) etc.? Why not find someone with lots of money and power and a simpatico personality, and the right hair color, and just walk in? Shouldn't be hard for a big powerful OT like Ron, eh?
