Wow....all this coming from a person who believes in fairytales like religion?.....The pot calling the kettle black I say.

Did you say Twilight Zone?

I know you were just having fun, but here's a link to answer your questions without me having to re-type everything.

You could have just come out and said you liked computer draws . Why is that so hard unless you want everyone following to wade through your old ramblings to figure out what you are cryptically trying to say? Hellooooo! Anybody home?Skeptical

Your theory about tubes is twilight stuff. BTW, I don’t follow a religion- religion is man-made BS like your ball-tube stance. Believe what you want, it’s just superstition that changing the tubes and pre-test draws messes with some kind of cosmic flow of numbers. It is just as ridiculous as your diametric position that software tampering is highly improbable. The fact of software tampering has been documented several times. If tube tampering, cosmic flow and any similar fairy tales have a standing, then you seem to think there is tampering. For those of us with our feet set square on the ground and know software tampering has happened with respect to State lottery games, our views are not unlike what you believe about tampering-but it has teeth. You admit the tube tampering is a theory, I call it a strange superstition or a fairytale that pales in comparison to facts of historical software tampering. Who’s in the twilight zone? Those with runaway imaginations with beliefs founded in superstitionsCrazy. Just the facts ma’am.

Let’s say there are online games using real balls and live draws that can be reviewed by the contestants. Some of us would rather trust our eyes with what we can see, than what we cannot see. There does not seem to be any regulation federally for states to abide by in being honest in what they do, so likewise there will be little regulation for online draws and that begs for hidden tampering. Some of us would rather watch some balls drop as opposed to virtual balls on a screen. You trust your eyes for what you believe, so what’s wrong with others living by the same belief? Like Todd said, “It’s a big internet” and there will be options implied in that statement in online games. The poll is about what one favors, not why. Helloooo??????Idea

BTW, pictures of UFO’s are still pictures. I saw a picture of a flying pig but I know better than to believe my eyes. When I can see a UFO with my eyes in a museum, then I will believe they exist and are not some fantasy fabrication of the twilight zone, some ‘theory’ unproven. It’s funny how so many will not believe in an unseen God yet will believe in unseen twilight zone extraterrestrials of superior intelligence. How ironic is that? You nor I can make someone believe something, but facts do help and many times as VisionDude desires, they are demanded. This was just a poll on what members favor, not why. You can vote as you wish without having to defend yourself or proving a point. Now it is a derailed debate. Are you happy with the flow nowHippy?

    push comes to shove........live drawings with balls are the lesser of the two evils.

    "lesser",  because if i am not there physically to measure the weight of each ball,  and calibrate each machine before each draw,  i do realize even a ball drawing can be tainted,  so i still have to place some trust in the drawings integrity.

    live ball drawings are more "trustworthy"

    i also realize that random people win the lottery, vs hand picked "relatives" of lottery officials (at least as far as i can tell),  so i "trust" ball drawings enough to throw a $1 QP at it

                "i am .........."meant to"       

    P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

             until further notice,  it's  france everyday

        The sub samplings of real ball lottery draws may not give much to work with, while an rng result is a sampling of nothing.   Like an actor on a cgi set, at least the actor is real.
