I've noticed that whenever I choose numbers to take out of my game, you know, just to reduce my pool from 18 to 15 or so, some of those numbers come out in the drawing.  This is very frustrating and I got to thinking, what if quantum physics was at play here?  What if our meticulous observations of these games is affecting the results?

This happens when I play for a normal game, instead of tailoring my numbers for a game starting in the teens (Take 5).  Teen games are rare, but now that I'm specifically aiming to avoid them, they seem to be coming out frequently.  Is this happening to any of you?

 

Teen game:

16-18-28-32-39

Normal:

2-10-22-28-31

    Some call it Quantum Physics.

    I call it Murphy's Law.

      Murphy's Law doesn't allow for a win, though.

            That all seems eerily true.

              Well it is possible that every decision we make changes things and we will never know otherwise. I would be out driving and often times I would pass by a liquor store or a gas station and think about buying a ticket when I already have one but end up not buying. And when I check my losing ticket I would wonder if I would have won if I had bought the ticket that I passed up.

                You're absolutely correst. It's just like the cat in the box. Schrodinger's cat example in Quantum physics/mechanics. There's a cat in the box. It could be alive or dead. You won't know unless you oben the box.

                  The Schrödinger's cat is dead,  he came up with that in 1935.  It probably stopped smelling around 1954.

                      Yes!  I don't know if my blog post stuck or not, but it tells about that, where I would have won $7,000,000 two weeks after changing my numbers!

                              I think this is true.  That's one of the reasons I play QP's now.  I don't want to be 'attached' to the numbers in any way.
