    I perfer ping pong balls for actual games. I use the computer to count for me--it makes less mistakes then tired eyes after a period of time.

      i prefer computerized games any day...I think i am a small minority here in LP who likes computerized games...the idea that they can be manipulated is something i like very much...

      The idea that balls are colliding and your ticket could had been up but because of a last minute: 2/300th of a second collision cause your number not to come up i cant grasp that idea...Sincerely it makes no difference to me but because of the fact that computerized can be manipulated i like the idea i think if you are REALLY good it will make no difference....Lots of people dont like the idea of manipulation the way i see is what do you think someone who has a powerful system is, that person can win your jackpot (talking about jackpot games) and to me is almost the same thing as manipulation...

      This reminds me of: RNG i´ve heard on the internet they talk about the latest technology on RNGs and their seed (or whatever is it that they call it) and this and that and to me it makes no difference is the range/matrix of the game that matters and how many pre-tests...The RNG computer program that i like the most is one i saw on the net that had computer drawings of balls, they were bigger but the container was bigger and they will collide in slow motion, the balls will hit on the walls of the container and bounce back it will take like 1 minute and then you will see the ball that was sucked up it could go on slow motion or faster it was called elottery but it was a free lotto but i saw the website for a short period (like a year) and then didnt see it again...It was very cool...

      And the random you see in bonus ball is not random, is something was random it could spill 9 drawings all evens and it will still be random because you DONT KNOW what´s coming next to me the lottery the way they are set up, ball drawing or computer is more of a trap than it is random....

      and if i had to prefer ball drawings i´ll go with the test tubes machine that they used to have (pick3 and Pick4)....Also i´ve seen discrepancies on Pick3 and Pick4 that has lead me to believe that you can also manipulate ball drawings, like i remember every 24 and 25 of december the sums of pick4 will be 24 or 25...

      i prefer a computerized Pick3 or Pick4 game with no pre-test or played once a day than i prefer a ball drawing with 6 pretests or playing twice a day....

      i feel if you was good enough it will not make a difference....

      before they used to be pin pong balls now they are rubber like which makes them bounce more when they collide...i think is a speciall rubber also one that will have lots of bounding on it....

      to me is the formula that matters anyway...

      i meant to say:

      And the random you see regular balls is not random, is something was random it could spill 9 drawings all evens and it will still be random because you DONT KNOW what´s coming next to me the lottery the way they are set up, ball drawing or computer is more of a trap than it is random...

      before they used to be pin pong balls now they are rubber like which makes them bounce more when they collide...i think is a speciall rubber they use one that will have lots of bouncing on it....

      The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

                      I've taken for granted that everyone hates computers in the lottery drawing process but recently saw someone say they prefer them.

                      What are your thoughts on them?

                      I know a little about pseudo random number generator algorithms and I know that they are anything but random but the real issue I have with computers for lottery draws is disclosure.   It's easier to audit simple physics then it is to audit code.   Just like seeing how a bicycle works versus how a car works, there's simply more transparency both literally and figuratively.

                        I lose with either method, so it makes no difference to me.

                              Okay, Okay, anything I see as a Put down on women gets me going... well imagine if they told you all men had the brain capacity of a gnat! That they are only Beasts of burden, should do it and shut up!!!

                              Do you know why Women get mad in a "battle of the sexes" debate?  It's because Men use common sense as their defense.   It's literally impossible to beat men in such debates.
