I really like that coined term!    Hyper

You should consider putting a copy right on that.  Smash

Ahemm......trademark. 

 

After running errands, I spent my last day off before going back to work getting a QP powerball ticket from this kind of dirty little store next to a check cashing store. But I do like the numbers I got.

    Thanks for posting Thrifty, I somehow had the impression that Donald played 4 QPs and one self pick.

    Donald played 4 self picks and ONE QP which should serve as a crushing blow to the beliefs of QP players.

    It is easy to get a misguided impression regarding the randomness of the lottery and strategies within, Ronnie.

    When first reading the official news article, I had the impression Donald only spent 2 dollars, but a picture is worth how many words?  425 million?

    Anyway you can see by analyzing the ticket, Donald let it ride on power number 49, and also power² ball 21.

    What did he see that I missed?  Maybe he used a GH wheel?

      4 self picks plus one QP brings a total of 10 dollars ronnie.

      Do you need stack to do the math for you again?Jester

      This ticket total is only 8 bucks, so it was three self pick, and one easy pick.

        I believe that self pick and quick numbers have the same chance of winning. The lottery is a numbers game. I like your Donald ticket version too. You can still try both.Good luck.

        The have the same purported odds of winning, but not necessarily the same degree of certainty for any particular combination of numbers.

          I think self picks rule over QPs but I will try both using Donald's 75/25 approach.......

            Yes, QP are a convenience. People want easy results, and the Donald is a hard working hillbilly.

            I believe the PC term is hard working redneck.Jester

              I have been toying with this idea of checking the QP box on the play slip for every other column. The terminal will have to go from randomly generating numbers to running numbers I selected myself. Somehow in my delusional mind that may work in my favor in getting better QPs. Crazy

                If no one wins the lottery this week or if someone wins who doesn't use a system, I hope this will show all you guys that systems don't work (wheels and stuff).

                QP's are just as good as picking your own numbers. If systems work then you should have at least 100 winners on Weds because millions of players are out there playing their systems. Guys like Stack47.

                    You might have enough time to buy a space ship (shuttle) and fly to the Space station, or to the moon or to the nearest wormhole or something, and then you can go maybe back in time to another earth, or you can travel to Irakis and get some of that "spice"

                      Or I will spin in a circle like a whirling dervish for ten secs, between bets.  (Usually preferred when the store is empty)

                       

                      Sometimes I even rub the machine to try and make it more happy before I ask for a easy pick.

                        I feel that the Donald will never tell us how he really picked those self picks, but self picks and QPs will put us on any game. We just have to use self picks with QPs too.

                        I read at a CT website, that It was a combination of dowsing, astral projection, free writing, possession (non darkforce entities), and magic mushrooms, with a sprinkle of LP inspect.

                        Thats why his hand got so smart.

                          There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to — The Outer Limits.

                              Why do you even care how other people pick their numbers?  I doubt if they cares how you pick yours.
