Interesting how sooooo many Straights can go untouched for soooo many years.
They do seem to fall in clumps like Gilla says. The last one to hit before 747 was almost 40plus days ago ....which is a long time between skips on these.
Midday now has 78 no hits left to go. How often should they Hit ..you ask? LOL
Well ,,,of the 78 straights there are 56 singles..... and 22 doubles
The short answer to the question of how often? is... 7.8% of the time.
What does that mean in "Dog years" LOL..... about every 13 or 14 Midday draws. It gets further and further apart as time and numbers fall. Thats why another could be close. Such a long skip on the last one.
Over the last 277 draws ...... 26 no hits fell midday. Thats a hit every 10.65 days on this list ....or what use to be a list of 104 un touched straights at the beginning of this year. We have had draws on Mid since 1998 ..... and the thought we could have started this year of 2005 with 10% of the chart untouched is fascinating.
See what's happening? .....further and futher apart. Get em' while they're HOT .
The only real failure .....is the failure to try.
Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much.
Odds never change .....but probability does.
