We usually talk about 2 types of tickets - Quick Picks or Self Picks.  If we add scratch-offs, then there are 3.

So what about the Quick Picks you buy one week and play the nex or a scratch-off someone tossed away and you discover it's a $10 winner?  

Could they be put into categories?

Example:  "The Fender-Bender"  This is a ticket you play off the numbers you copied from the license plate of the car in front of you before you slammed on the brakes. 

"The Shudda-Wudda-Cudda"  This is ticket that you know would have won had only you played the numbers you were really thinking about, but changed them.

      I have two names for my two types of tickets.

      Losers and winners.

      The losers out number the winners by 99.999 to 1

        For a Pick 5 game, the "Cribbage ticket":

        2  4  15   29  31

        For 5 + 1 games, the "Harvey Haddix" ticket: any combo on the top matrix with a +1 number of !2, the

        (Haddix pitched a 12 inning no hitter and lost the game!)

        The "mail2web" Pick 4

        There's a website called mail2web where you can check your e-mail from anywhere- all you need is your e-mail and password.

        It tells you the size of every e-mail in your inbox- play the biggest one!

        The "retired player's numbers" ticket

        Look up your favorite team's retired uniform numbers and play them

        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.

          Okay, Pac.   So you think I should perhaps come up with a new, unique topic like

          Quick Picks or Your Own Numbers?

          Annual Payments or Lump Sum?

          What would you do if you won the PB?

          Would you want to remain anonymous?

          How much money would you give away?

          Where would you live if you won a jackpot?

          Would you quit your job if you won the lottery?

          How do you pick your numbers?

                Maybe you can write to the toilet paper place and have them design the toilet paper like lottery tickets.

                99.999% of my tickets should be used for that purpose any how. Be a daily reminder of all my losers.

                  I already did that, but an official wrote back telling me how difficult that would be, trying to swipe a sheet thru a lotto machine to see if it won.

                  He told me to just forget it and put the whole idea behind me.

                      Pac, you keeping cracking me up!  You are really on a roll.   I was laughing so hard that I fell off my stool.  Now I feel completely drained.

                            I don't know if I can.  I'm pooped!   I went on a wild date last night with the Tidy Bowl man.  I don't want to tell anyone, so please keep a lid on it.

                            (oh, in case you're curious..date didn't go to well.   It was a real strain on me, since he told me he was a non-smoker, but he had a pipe.  He dressed strangely too.  I've never gone out with a guy with clogs.)

                              Self-picked numbers shouldn't even be a part of my vocabulary; I only use qps which to me is superior, but back to the subject at hand I only have tickets that make me feel good and those that make me feel neutral(I typically throw those away, so if one of those win that would suck for me, but whatever, i dont really play to win, I just play for that dream and fantasy.)
