I did 32 and had vapor lock !

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.

Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much.

Odds never change .....but probability does.

Here is a different way to look at it .....as a 5 number game using ODD /Even rather than 1 and 2 digits.

So.....we can see there are only 7 versions (Box wise) in a 5 postion game.

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.
