The Jamaican saying “Irie” is often used to mean “everything is alright and fine.” Anansi is an African folktale character. He often takes the shape of a spider and is sometimes considered to be a god of all knowledge of stories.

Decision Logic

This bet will be resolved upon publication by the Office for National Statistics or the British Religion in Numbers Department of the University of Manchester, of analysis which shows a comparison between these affiliations on a comparable basis such as the BRIN paper:
