To figure the unfigurable;

To play the unplayable,

and to hit the unhittable,

That is the Tao of the lottery.

              Nice thread. 

               

              Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

              It's about number behavior.

              Egos don't count.

                Looking for superlative numerical horses?

                Duke Mu of Chin said to Po Lo: 'You are now advanced in years.

                Is there any member of your family whom I could employ to look for horses in your stead?'

                Po Lo replied: 'A good horse can be picked out by its general build and appearance. But the superlative horse - one that raises no dust and leaves no tracks - is something evanescent and fleeting, elusive as thin air. The talents of my sons lie on a lower plane altogether; they call tell a good horse when they see one, but they cannot tell a superlative horse. I have a friend, however, one Chin-fang Kao, a hawker of fuel and vegetables, who in things appertaining to horses is nowise my inferior. Pray see him.'

                Duke Mu did so, and subsequently dispatched him on the quest for a steed.

                Three months later, he returned with the news that he had found one. 'It is now in Shach'iu,' he added.

                ' What kind of a horse is it?'asked the Duke.

                'Oh, it is a dun-colored mare,' was the reply.

                However, someone being sent to fetch it, the annual turned out to be a coal-black stallion!

                Much displeased, the Duke sent for Po Lo. 'That friend of yours,' lie said, 'whom I commissioned to look for a horse, has made a fine mess of it. Why, lie cannot even distinguish a beast's color or sex! What oil earth can he know about horses?'

                Po Lo heaved a sigh of satisfaction. 'Has he really got as far as that?' he cried. 'Ah, then he is worth ten thousand of me put together. There is no comparison between us.

                What Kao keeps in view is the spiritual mechanism. In making sure of the essential, he forgets the homely details; intent on the inward qualities, lie loses sight of the external. He sees what he wants to see, and not what he does not want to see.

                He looks at the things he ought to look at, and neglects those that need not be looked at. So clever a judge of horses is Kao, that lie has it in him to judge something better than horses.'

                When the horse arrived, it turned out indeed to be a superlative animal.

                 

                 

                Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

                It's about number behavior.

                  The less concept people have of the odds against them, the more money they play.

                  With millions to one odds against the first dollar played there is no such thing as an addittional dollar halving those odds.

                    Put a dollar-sign in front of the odds and billboard it as the jackpot size.  Put a colon between the first and second digits of the cash value and call it the odds.

                        That is how professional poker players figure "pot odds".  They weigh the odds of making the hand they need to win the pot vs what is in the pot, and how much of what is in the pot they themsleves put in.
