Considering the various threads we've had about staying anonymous or not, handling people who approach you if you're a big wineer, just thoight I'd mention this - a real good look at human nature.

In the book Signs, Symbols, and Omens by Raymond Buckland there is a section about travelers symbols and signs used. (Some of this is also known as Hobo maps - hobos would leave maps for other hobos about houses in the vicintiy of hobo camps).

Here's the captions under some of the symbols:

Kindhearted woman

Tell pitiful story

Religious people

Wealthy person

Granted these are symbols used by hobos looking for handouts, but you can be sure if word got out you won millions the same types would surface.



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.

            I would much rather use those $1 & $2 winners to get some work done than cashing them in.Wink

              Absolutely, the more you give the more they'll want and the more that'll come your way.

              You can't predict random.
