    A wise choice. Why share the jackpot with the hundreds of others, who might possibly run out to play that lucky fortune cookie number tonight.  Wink

    I had zero numbers....lol.

      Don't feel bad, even the members who shared their numbers on the prediction board didn't win big.

        so if I flipped a coin 5 times and it came out heads 5 times in a row, I'd still have a 50 percent chance of getting heads again on the 6th coin toss? After all, the coin doesn't pay attention to what people think. I would say the chances of getting heads again would decrease and the chances of getting tails would increase after every flip where I got heads consecutively.

        The coin doesn't know what happened the last time it was flipped, and it doesn't know what you think will happen the next time. You can say whatever you want, but it has no affect on the outcome.

          I'll take past coin flip results in to account because of chi-square distribution.

            Might as well just buy Disneyland DP. This way no lines, no waiting!

             

            Cartmanland may be cheaper!
