What is the oddest thing you’ve used for numbers?

Once I used the bar code from a Champagne bottle, but I guess the strangest thing is the longitude and latitude for Erehwon (nowhere spelled backwards) New Zealand.

    Not me, but in a book about what to do if you win, the author mentioned a woman who was waiting in line to go to the cashier and played the lot number off of a box of donuts and hit six for six.

    I guess the oddest thing I've used is numbers I've just heard on the radio or the fiirst six numbers to appear in the newspaper.

        That is a hard question to answer....

        any numbers that look good...they can pop up from anywhere

        I like to play numbers in movies the come out...I am play 392 from the new movie Denzel Washington is in...the 392 is a safe deposit box....that and 393...all from the movie.

           I try that kid of stuff all the time, thus far, nada. The other day (I guess I should have mentioned this one first) I was coming out of the post office and a slip of paper with postal codes or something blew right into my hand. I played it on Little Lotto, only hit one of five.

            I knew a guy who would throw up a deck of cards into the air and whatever landed face-up...he would play. After about 7 years and a lot of cards...he won 75,000 dollars.

              I think if someone chooses a method like that, they're not playing with a full deck.

                I once played the numbers of all the local broadcast TV stations, but it didn't work.

                I've played a set of numbers based on my SSN as well as a state based on my birthday and age. The latter won me $50 once.

                I'm also trying to come up with a series of numbers that are related to the TV series "The Prisoner." I've come up with the numbers 1, 2, and 6, but haven't come up with any others yet. I plan to play those perhaps on Pick 3 or Pick 4, and see what I get.

                  It is true that this person was slightly nuts! Maybe more then slightly. He was eventualy fired from

                  his No Pity!job because of difficulties with his superiors.

                    From the book Infinite Financial Freedom
                    What To Do Before And After You Win The Lottery

                    pp 22-23

                    Some of the more unusal ways that multi-million dollar winners have reporedly picled their winning numbers include using these:

                    A dart board's numbers hit by thowing darts;

                    A camera's serial number;

                    The rural route number on the commute to buy the wining ticket;

                    The serial number from a social Security check;

                    Prayers answered in a prayer garden;

                    Dream visits from a deceased grandfather;

                    The lot number on a box of doughnuts bought while waiting in line to buy the winning ticket.
