Let's have some fun, do some predictions for lotteries and LP for 2008 - (Not winning number predictions like the prediction forum), but predictions as in prognostication, things you think might happen or outlandish things you'd like to see hapen!

I'll start with a few:

* Pumpi talks Todd into charging for the prediction pages. 25 cents cents for a losing predictions, 1.00 for a winning prediction. When this policy goes into effect the predictions decrease greatly.

* A dream interpreter who is frequently a guest on coast to Coast A.M. radio joins the board and starts giving winning dream numbers out - also for a fee. Despite the winning numbers, traffic on the Mystical Forum also decreases.

* JADE Lottery and Jarasan both win Pick 5 jackpots- with quick picks and get evangelsitic about quick picks. Coin Toss tells them he's starting to see a pattern to winning sets of numbers.

* Pacattack '05 buys a winning ticket at a truckstop on an Interstate, but carries it for 179 days, not realizing it's a winner. Over coffee at another truckstop, a waitress talks him onto checking his tickets.

* Fourteen LP members are revealed as lotterry people monitoring the board- none of the fourteen are any of the members people suspect of this already.

* Someone on LP hits a jackpot, says the numbers were a quick pick with numbers they selected, and they opted for cash payment in the form of an annuity (and that settles that!)

 tbc....keep it going folks

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

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.

    Lottery Director Rebecca Paul loves the idea of the cash option annuity, tries to get a multi-state lotto going based on that and "here's my numbers, give them to me in a quick pick."

    Only Tennessee, North Carolina, and North Dakota are interested.

      Pretty Good, Coin Toss.....

         How 'bout this,   

      Pumpi  finally gets a credit card (or something),  And talks Todd into buying a Bubble Machine, everyone has to pitch in a buck or so, for a drawing once a month.

         Pumpi wins the first one.

          Psykomo  starts putting en-crypted messages on his play-slips,  and voids them out, next to his quick-picks.

             The machine at the store picks up on it, and he finally waits no more, he wins!!

          But Lottery Director says he cheated the machine and he doesn't get any money. 

                                          He goes crazy

                He becomes the psykomo  Fire-Bomber,  and starts burning down Lottery offices across the United States....... Miss Rebeca's firstNaughty

            Pretty good X1kosmic!

             * Rebecca Paul, now operating out of a "rolling ofice" in a semi-trailer because of Psykomo's antics, gets frustrated over other states not liking her ideas for a multi-state lotto.

            Out of desperation, she suggests a ball drawing lotto with everything in Roman numerals, including the playslips.  

            When other lottey directors tell her that's ridiculous, she screams. "You just don't get it!" 

            People e-mail her from the UK and Nigeria saying they are interested in such a lotto.

              Justxploring fnds an Aladain's Lamp of sorts in an antique shop. 

              A genie pops out and says he has a deal for her re: lotto - she can hit a pick 3 whenever she plays, never pay tax on winnings, but there's a catch, a mild curse comes with this - in order to hit, she has to dress as KoKo the Killer clown, and will often be brought in and questioned by the police.

              She will always be released, but will have to explain the whole story over and over, and there will be some kind of "Twilight Zone" effect on the police that they will never remnember just having questioned her.

              And of coure, since world will get out that the clown never loses, she'll have to wait to play until no one else is even enar the lotto counter.

                    My predictions (having not read any of these yet)

                    - Gas will reach 3.50 a gallon during Summer, maybe make a run at 4 during an unknown crisis.

                    - Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, the Red Sox win the World Series, the Patriots win the Super Bowl.

                    - There will be at least one story about someone claiming they have a winning ticket but the real winner proves them wrong.
                      maybe a story about a group of people winning and someone thought they were part of it but weren't.

                    - There will be some annoying young female singer that will take attention away from Britney Spears
                      and Amy Winehouse. Who the heck is Amy Winehouse?

                    - OJ Simpson will be found "Not Guilty".

                    - Some country that we're not paying any attention to now will start war with a neighboring country.

                    - Don Imus will run his mouth again (angering Hillary this time) and be forced into retirement.*

                    - There will be a $400M Powerball jackpot, after Powerball changes some aspect of the game (more balls?)
                      Mega will then add the Megaplier finally and have a similar jackpot.

                    - A member of here (not necessarily me) will win a very large jackpot and we'll never hear the end of it.

                    *I'll settle for the Imus prediction to be the only one to come true.

                        *Todd will add a quick pick feature to the LP lottery results gadget for Vista's sidebar - and will discover it has connected itself to the computer generated lotteries - and this new gadget is psychic- it can predict what numbers are going to come up! However the winning numbers it gives are only given 15 minutes before the draw - so no one can get to the store fast enough to use them.

                        *Some one on LP will win a gigantic lottery jackpot - and will never be heard from again.

                        *Someone carrying a 4 leaf clover, a lucky rabbits foot, their personal lucky stone, and using their favorite birthday/lucky numbers will win a jackpot .... as will 22 other people for the same jackpot
