I understand what Coin Toss said and I have to agree with him.  Random is as random does.

Where he is mistaken concerns me looking for consistency.  I am not looking for consistency.  I am looking at information buried within any 5 numbers out of a total of 39 numbers.  I am looking for facts which may be true for one set of 5 numbers but not true of another set of 5 numbers. Hapy Numbers is one such set of facts.  Padovan numbrs are another.  Odd or even sums, high number, low number, consecutive numbers, and so on are other facts.

    I was asked how I use Padovan numbers.  I track them with zero's and 1's.  In my Excel spreadsheet, I put a 0 if the draw did not contain a Padovan number and a 1 if it did.

    At this point, I have no idea what to do with that information.  As soon as an idea forms in my foggy, bottom brain (I'm from Tennessee, don't you know), I will test the idea.  If the results are worth printing out, I will post them here.

    There is something about all those 0's and 1's that smack of binary numbers.  Just how binary might fit into the over-all scheme of things remains to be seen
