I just had to say something about this.
In which way(s) is lottery like poker?
The website is down so can't see what might had been there.
The only "Google" group that I found that had xxxxxxx is like power is not a lottery group, but a"group" about "Frugal Living" or whatever.
Anyhow, poker is an inter-active game or a game in which 2 or more people actively play or actively interact with the game and each other thru the game, they all have active participation in the game.
I might be wrong, but it seems to me that lottery games are mostly or only one sided, that is the player(s) does not in any-way affect or effect as the word might be (?) the outcome of the draws, that is the numbers that come out, the players have no active participation in the draws (Drawings), it is true that also in poker the players have no participation in the poker cards that they get either and the players are also playing against random, but also playing against the skills of the other players, in the lottery games the players don't play against the skill of the state lotteries, only against random.
With the lottery, the players' participation is mostly passive and there are mostly random factors involved, even with the use of prediction systems, it is still playing and predicting in accord to and with random.
While with poker is both: Passive and active, so kind of semi-active, that is the game has both: Random and non-random factor.
With the lottery, you really don't manipiulate anything, the lottery or lottery random manipulates you.
Yes, the lottery or random manipulates how you will predict, because it is in accord to how random works and manipulates the numbers that you will have to predict like.
Random does not work with you, but if you know how, you can try to work with random, that is in accord to how random appears to work.
The lottery is a game of random patterns and their statistics and on your side of what-ever you do or don't do about them, but you can't affect the outcome of the draws no matter what you do.
With poker, you at least help create some of the patterns by your inter-active participation in the game.
Yes, both games are similar in some ways, but hardly "Alike"
In both cases, the person(s) with the best combination of luck and skill will win.
I see new changes to the rich text editor that were not there the last time that I used it.
I used a rich text editor from somewhere else that also allows people to insert links to mp3s and also videos from the "youtube" site, very cool!, you see the videos right on the posts and of course also hear the sound, as to the mp3s, I didn't yet use that, but I think that it probably allows people to hear the mp3s (Musi, voice or both) right on the Pc speakers or headphones as you look at the post.
Of course, this being a lottery forum, should have no needed for neither video nor mp3 posts, links can also be posted to sites to where a person can see and or hear those as needed, they don't have to be embeded with the post.
Well, I just had to say that.
