The Lottery "Fairie"
I'm putting this here as it's kind of a funny story.
My wife gets a kick out of this board and considers it quite entertaining as she believes most winners are just flat lucky, or at least lucky the moment they buy the winnning ticket.
Anywy, we were having coffee at a place that had lotto, so she was doing her crosswords and I was recording last nights numbers, focusing on Pick 3, so I did the last twelve draws and how many times each number had it, and I did +2 -2.
Well we get these StarScroll things that have a brief horoscope for each day, and numbers. So after all my figuring, she plays her Pick 3 for that day for the evening draw, and voila! Straight box hit!
First time we ever hit anything on Pick 3 and it was a striaght box!
But wait....it gets better....she checked it again and realized she had taken the number from the wrong day!
Like I'd ever have a chance now of convincing her it's not just luck.
