Do statistics trump all other forms of math where lotteries are concerned?

Dr san:  Thanks for the reply.  The opinion you've provided is one shared by
many LP members.  However, it's only one of the many diametrically opposing
opinions shared by LP members.  LP is a reservoir of experience, experimenting
by members from widely varied backgrounds, observations, motives and world views.

The fact hundreds of people of generally equal intelligence, education,
experience and common sense hold diametrically opposing views on the subject of
lotteries should probably serve as a governor for each of us by introducing an
element of self-doubt that mightn't otherwise be included in our viewpoints.
Your opinion, my opinion, and the opinions of everyone else posting here might
be dearly held, but the fact we hold them bears no relationship with whether
they correspond to any greater truth than the fact we hold them.

The object of discussion boards doesn't necessarily involve achieving consensus,
but rather exchange of information, observation, data, methods and possible
solutions.   Consensus probably isn't the object for most members. 

Furthering individual efforts and pursuits more likely is.

Feel free to use the concept I provided above for 6/49.  It shouldn't be
difficult for you to set up and accomplish.

Thanks again for the reply.
