What is the one "whackiest" way you've ever used to get numbers to play?

For those of you who aren't familiar with #3, there's a site called Where's George and you stamp or write wheresgeorge.com on paper currency, record the serial numbers, log them in, and see where they go.  

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.

    Had a set of ten sided dice. Got them at a novelty store.

    Threw them out and bingo my number for the day.

        I used to live next door to a guy who had Tourette's syndrome. One day I decided to listen to how many times he yelled the "B" word in one hour, for 3 hour segments, and played that amount that night. The first hour was 53, the second was 50, and the third was 37.

        I needed 3 more numbers, so I also counted the "F" word. 29, 30, and 47.

        I didn't get any numbers that night. So I started cursing out loud myself. (Only for about 2 minutes).

          Voted other since the ways listed I don't consider "wacky". I 've done each one a nuimber of times and won numerous lower tier prizes on pick 5 and pick 6 over the years. My idea of wacky: I choose my pick 3 and pick 4 numbers from the id numbers (not the plate numbers) on the Taxicabs and Buses I see for that particular day.

            I would take whatever game I was playing and make my own lottery machine.  I would write down the numbers and cut them out and ball the individual papers up and roll them around and pick out the numbers.  As you can tell I had a lot of time on my hands.

                  The Strangest way...used a deck of tarot cards and asked the deck what the winning numbers were.

                  When i was a bingo caller, I use to use the numbers that came up on balls during the games.

                      I wrote down numbers 0-9 and placed those numbers upside down, then made a pendulum and hoped it would start doing circles and stuff over the right numbers... it did move, but I think I was moving it subconsiously with the slightest involuntary movement of my hand holding the string. It took me like 40 minutes or so to pick out 4 numbers and they were the wrong numbers... no more with that...my eyes were buggin out and my arm fell asleep... and I wasted my $ ! Doh!

                        Sometimes I use numbers from my dreams. I've got three numbers right for Powerball once, but that is the closest I've gotten so far.

                          One time I got cut off big time in rush hour traffic. I was soo upset that I wrote down the license plate of the driver. That night I played that number and it hit, exactly! It was on a pick four. $2500 isnt to shabby. So something good did come out of a bad situation.

                           

                          Ps: Pacattack- I rolled reading your story! Way too cleaver to be wacky! I loved it!
