    Disappointment in the fact that I couldn't find a way to predict the sucker.

    I guess that means I'm a glutton for punishment.

        No you ain't.....

        Don't feel bad because you couldn't predict correctly.

        At this rate, If humans lived for another thousand years without killing each other, we would be able to read minds by then, maybe even predict the numbers better. But for now....we have a lot to learn.

          Now that's what I call positive thinking.....

          All of a sudden reality checks in the front desk.

          A healthy dose comes in handy...LOL

            I'd probably refocus my efforts to find algorithms for the STOCK MARKET. Who knows what the Dems will do next, you never know! Corzine did it for a week here last year!

              There's probably a few thousand bookies around the country waiting for that very thing to happen.

              You'd be playing Pick 3 and if the middle digit is a 1 you win $450 instead of $500.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                Just thought of something else....all Pick 3 systems would bite the dust because when the bookies offer a pick 3, the winning number comes fromn yesterday's total mutual handle at a specified race track (last three dollar didgits). So if the total mutual handles was $360,579.50 let's say, the number woud be 579.

                No system in that. And the tracks are rotated so as to prevent any 'shennanigans'.  

                Maybe that's why they sell so many dream books on the East Coast.

                  The Bookies here paid $600, gave you $6 worth of play if you bet $5, offered credit, cashed pay checks and used the state lottery's number. I never heard anybody say they weren't paid and were paid in full the next day.

                        In a way, I would be relieved.  However, I would want a partial refund!
