Todd..let me say this First ..I think you have the best Lottery site on the entire web..Hands Down..If by some how you could OBTAIN the pretest draws for all the states and list them some how..that would give all the players here a BIG HELP...just a thought..I am sure it would be a lot of work to say the least..and even if you cant get them..I would suggest to everyone to try and find them and factor them into your daily workouts..one will effect the other..I surely believe that anyway..lol

    In some parts of the world, humans are used more directly to select the winning numbers. 

    Whether being asked to be a "button presser" that activates the trap doors at some draws here in Canada...or people used in dangerous ways, like in the Orient where professional archers are used to shoot arrows at giant spinning wheels to get the winning numbers.  If an arrow ever deflected and shot back into the audience....OUCH !

    That should be a post in itself, the strange way lotteries are drawn in places around the world. If you want some good reading, the International Guide to Lotteries is excellent.   

    It's very primative to say the least--people are already being used in the draws themselves.  One draw in Spain or Malta allows the winning balls to fall into wine glasses to get its winning combination. There a member of the town goes up and takes each ball out of a wine glass and announces what number is on it.  In Indonesia, 8 of the most beautiful girls in the country are asked to present the balls to a full city square.  The balls are so big that they use two hands to show the crowd each number.   

    So people by far assist in helping the lottery's draws people. It's something I have not seen in the U-S.  We use to have a traveling lottery show called Wintario here in Ontario, which the audience members from each town that the show visited,  were asked to draw the numbers.  A co-host would ask the audience member to press the button to activate the machines.

                  This would only help if the ore draws were HOURS or possibly days before the actual draw because the green machines stop taking new bets around 10:45pm est.  But yes, I completely agree that we could benefit from knowing these numbers.  I bet our accuracy rates would soar.  Even if we just knew how many pre-test draws they did would help us out.  That could explain why some numbers drew are really not repeats and some numbers are really hotter or colder than they really are.

                  It would also help us with mega ball selection.  We could see decade (1-10, 10-20, etc) and odd/even patterns better too.

                      Be careful doing this.  It could mean that you are not trusting the universe to bring the numbers to you.  If you do try to visualize, let it be from inspired action, don't force it.

                        woops! I meant to agree with Konane about the lotteries having going through a lot to make sure the balls all weighed the same, etc... As to why not to have humans draw the balls. I don't like that idea. And as far as remote viewing is concerned. I think that is evil to try to do it at will. If it comes naturally, then, isn't that-in the end- the universe bringing it to you anyway? I don't believe in forcing anything.

                          Sorry, I thought I clicked the "include quote" button.

                          I was responding to Raven, who described what  could be an effort to influence the timing of ball selection by the drawing host. 

                          It seems to me that it would be a good idea for the gate to be opened automatically  and randomly between some  minimum and maximum mixing time, though I don't think the reaction time of a host is likely to be good enough to have any intended influence.

                          Maybe it just indicates a need to Blindfold the Drawing Moderator. LOL!

                          Sorta like the Lottery Players are (Blindfolded): Unaware of what's going on behind the scenes at the time of the Lottery Drawing.

                          A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

                            Would they use Moth Balls ??? You know, with numbers on them.  You knew there would be a Moth Ball joke in the works.

                              They already sort of do "human" drawings in PA - they have I think an older Pennsylvanian to draw the # of the ball SET to be used in the drawing. And I HAVE SEEN (no lie) in a nj drawing a few years ago and more than once, where a draw machine on the Cash 5 was malfunctioning and the hostess reached her hand into the machine (looking the other direction) and picked out the last ball!
