Going Back In Time

Published:

On several ocassions when I had nothing better to do and the weather was not conducive to outdoor activities, I would go back to the beginning of this site and read the various comments.  I have done this about five times now.  Each time I usually found something of interest.  My latest foray Back In Time has produced a "So What?".

I did not know about "adjacent numbers".  When I read the post, I looked over my data on the Georgia Pick 5 game and found that 60% of the time an adjacent number occured.  What this means is still beyond my grasp but most of life is beyond my grasp so no surprise there.

I am still working on my "So What?".  I have hit a brick wall and can't seem to get past it.  Again, no surprise.  I have hit many brick walls and will hit many more.  For anyone to think there is a profitable method to winning the lottery is an exercise in folly.  But I like folly.  I wish folly were my middle name.    Goathead seems so negative. 

Oh, well, until next time.

The "adjacent numbers" mean that if you decide to focus only on those types of combinations, such a filter can reduce the list of numbers you play by up to 40%. The reverse will be the case if you seek out only those combinations that LACK adjacent numbers. Just a matter of style of play + bankroll.

I think this post by coin toss in the "so what" thread has a lot of meaning.

"Players look for consistency in something that is designed to be inconsistent.
When those who run the lotteries look over such theories they are the ones saying SO WHAT!"

I think each player develops their own mental instinct on what they want to look for in a game to work with. They are programming their mind on this does that and that does this.

So basicly when a lottery player is talking to someone about what they look for in a game the someone says "so what". That someone not having the full knowledge of the person explaining their method does understand what the person is explaining.
Almost like a college professor on teaching algebra or calculus to a newbie who does not understand. So the newbie may say "so what". All those symbols, symbols and numbers mean nothing to me.
Doing the lottery is almost like creating their own formula to arrive at an answer. Which may be wrong 98.5% of the time.

One thought which rattles around in my head constantly is this: If the lottery is truly random and chaotic, how can statistics predict anything about it?

Here is the only answer I can think of. If statistics can be applied to any lottery with a degree of certainty, is there something else that can be applied which would, with a degree of certainty, predict the next drawing? Now that degree of certainty might be very low but in a jackpot game, once would be more than enough.

Congrats on your 94% successful algorithm, Joker17. I wish I had one that good.
