Cat picks winning lottery numbers

InternationalInternational: Cat picks winning lottery numbers
41
Rating:

As the old Chinese saying goes, "Kindness often meets with good recompense."

And a Shenzhen resident surnamed Wang has been deeply convinced of that.

Wang, who adopted a homeless cat two months ago, bought a lottery ticket that won him a total of 3,271 yuan ($435). He has his cat to thank. Last week Wang brought his cat with him to buy a lottery ticket.

As Wang was about to buy the ticket, the frisky feline jumped out of his arms and onto the computer keyboard, accidentally choosing Wang's lottery numbers at random.

Wang, who had complained that his cat had wasted his 10 yuan ($1.29) lottery ticket, was surprised to learn on Tuesday that his cat had actually chosen the winning numbers for him.

      Always try to get my daughter's cat to give us the winning numbers by counting how many times he pats his tail on the floor before getting up to move to another spot.

      Hasn't won us a cent yet.

      We also have him rub the ticket that we buy for big games.

      This too has not given us a win.

      Oh well !!

      Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

        Confucious say: Black cat, white cat, no matter, as long as cat catch mice, good cat.

        Confucious say: No matter how much cat fight, always plenty of kittens.

        Confucious say: Cat that pick good numbers, become very fat cat.

              Is $435 the top prize? No wonder we can't compete with their wage scale.

              (free trade, my @$$)

                You can't have free trade if you are on the Gold Standard and China is on the Lead Standard.Its like comparing apples to oranges.

                        If memory serves me I read that the Chinese government has not allowed their currency to be traded in the world market, effectively forcing its stabilization at that rate. 

                         

                        Also years ago the now defunct Lotto World magazine had a story about a cat picking numbers, I believe playing with a lotto pen shaker. 

                        Good luck to everyone!

                          The method they were refering to and which this particular kitty used is called "pussyfooting".
