Have anyone of you heard of Criss Angel? I know that magic is not real but some of the things i see this guy do on Tv really has me thinking..I mean they show it on tv, and they tell you that some of the things he does is illusion and some of it is reality...I see this guy walk down the walls of a building upright, bury himself with chains on and stuff, literally pass through glass, etc....I just saw that on the next episode he is going to try and predict the positions of the cars in Nascar as they swing by the finish line, (which some say is impossible to do) for example: 4=1st, 10=second, and so forth, 18=6th and so fort, which got me thinking..If he can do that do you think he is going to take it to the NEXT STEP, and attempt to predict the Powerball with 1 combination : ) LOL...

That stunt will really wake me up and make me think that he's the hybrid son of an Alien and a human...If he can do that my next statement is: "This dude need to be stopped"...

    I have seen this magician before and he does do crazy things like other magicians such as David Blaine.  But I think if he wanted to win the powerball he should go and get a QP and wait for his numbers to show up.  Besides I am sure he is of legal age to play lottery and he has been a magician for awhile.  Their have been plenty of jackpots he could of tried to win.-weshar75

      If he could 'conjure up' the winning Powerball ticket would he be performing on stage with all that's involved with that?

        Coin toss,

        I know you were going to say that but why try and predict the winning of nascar cars? is a random phenomena too..Also there are magicians that money to them don't matter, they are seeking recognition and fame...Also, i think this guy does the thing he does to prove it can be done, because no matter how much they pay me, i WILL NOT burry myself in a coffin beneath the ground/soil with hand cuffs, and chains, no matter how much money they gave me...

          Criss is a talented magician / illusionist and I'm sure he is well paid.

          He doesn't need a lottery jackpot......

                There are several PowerBall winners that will make more than $12M this year also.  I've never heard of Criss Angel, but had he won the PB jackpot more than once, I would probably know him.  A lot of people know of Jack Whittaker and he only won it once.

                  I've heard of 2 people who won the lottery twice...I think it was massachussets, where a person won the pick6 twice...There was also another person from England that won the lottery over there and then traveled to Brazil and won it there too...

                  I think i might have heard of a guy that won it twice but don't know where he is from, but i do know that his next step was to go to kentucky and bet on horses....

                      Prediction of events, lottery or not, that is very interesting, I could right quite some, quoting the pick 3 lottery, on that.

                      I could start a thread on it, but I have given the state lotteries too much rope already and they are hanging me with it.

                      People who needed to learn didn't, but the states' lotteries did learn for sure.

                      EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
                      Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.

                        Since the original question was *COULD* he win. Sure! and so *COULD* I. The difference is being in the right place with the right numbers with the right amount of play money! I think as a lady I can make money disappear real quick at a shoe outlet :) but that doesnt make me a magician, just a fool about shoes!

                        Chris is an amazing artist and I agree that he is more about the notoriety and creating that human interest in the mystery of things then he is about the money! I commend persons who enjoy what they do and some how get to share that joy with others.

                          EXCALIBUR,

                          Are you saying something you posted in a thread at LP gave state lotteries an advantage over players like yourself that they didn't have before?  Since the states already know it would you mind reposting the information for those of us who missed it the first time?

                            Pumpi, I hope the lottery is a game of chance and the drawings are random. If this holds true, then a magician can't have any better odds of winning than we do.  Illusionists are entertainers who use physics, light and quick movements to amaze onlookers. It takes a lot of practice, talent and slight of hand. Chance can't possibly fall into their acts. They need to be very precise or the game's over.

                            BTW, nobody can pass through a pane of glass. The only thing that passes through glass without breaking it is light.

                              I could ALMOST Guarantee you that if you give me between $180 and $360 PER DRAWING NIGHT, I could win at least the PB Pick 5 in 3 months, maybe even 2.  However, the red ball: that damned thing just escapes me almost every time.

                               

                              I pick my numbers based on a theory I can afford (I'm bound and determined not to go over $12 MAX per drawing, and I usually play just $6 or $9), it may take a longshot to win it, but it's ALL a longshot, if it wasn't, the pot would be won every single night.
