You're talking like a second grader who asks why does he has to know two plus two equal four and where is he ever going to use that information and yet the person who figured out the statistics that proved the birthday paradox exists had to know that and more. 

Before I retired I was a maintenance mechanic and when I was called out to fix a piece of equipment and did some simple to get it running again the attendants would say "that was simple, I could have done that" and would always reply "you didn't that why I was called".  My point is just knowing stuff isn't enough if you don't how to use what you know.

Well, you're right.

But I really don't think that by me knowing what The Birthday Paradox is, and why it's true that I can use that knowledge to determine what tonight's winning Take5 numbers will be.  That was my point.  I made it very crudely in a crass attempt to be funny.  But that's just me being me.

      I'm getting a headache from the 17 too... Because I'm NOT playing it!!!

      8th time it's hit this month and the month is only half over.   There's a good chance for it to have 10 hits this month.

      Those tens are still the hot number group. They were the hottest group in 2014, and still are hot. A total of 535 balls have come out this year, and 150 of them have been in the tens.   Next closest group is the twenty's with 135.   G5

                  It's going to be interesting to see (at least for me anyway) on July 1st how the numbers stand.

                  I'm curious to see if the 6 will have 30 hits on July 1st.  As of last night, it's got 22 hits in 2015.  So on May 1st, just 12 drawings away, it will definitely have more than one third of 60 hits, and 2015 will be one third complete, so the 6 is definitely on track for 60 hits this year.  If on July 1st it's sitting at 29, 30 or 31 hits, it could make it to 60 hits in 2015.

                  All 39 numbers are definitely cycling.  When I compare my rolling 365 day chart to all of 2014, eight of the top ten big hitters of 2014 have fewer hits than they had in all of 2014.  (They've fallen in terms of the number of hits they have in a rolling 365 day period vs all of 2014 so they're getting "colder." Most of the big hitters of 2014 are getting colder.)  Only the 6 and the 17 remain hot and have more hits in the rolling 365 day chart than they had in all of 2014. G5

                    I don't know if most people that read this forum are following "The Great Take5 Mystery", but it's been solved. The mystery is why have 44 sets of 5 duplicate winning numbers been drawn in the 6,587 drawings that have happened since January 17, 1992 when Take5 began. The formula to compute it is complicated and I'm not qualified to explain why it happens, but the whole thing is nothing more than a paradox.   

                    The definition of paradox is: "any person, thing, or situation exhibiting an apparently contradictory nature."  We all think it shouldn't have happened, when in reality it's actually normal and to be expected. 

                    At any rate, the T5 paradox has caused me to re-think how I think about the numbers.  We all say that a number is "hot" or it's "cold".  They're as good as any terms to use to describe what's happening with any given number,  but I now tend to think in terms of numbers "cycling".  The lottery certainly is random, but the numbers are simply behaving normally, they cycle in, and they cycle out.  Some numbers will cycle more than others.  By that I mean some will cycle more frequently (hot) and some will cycle less frequently. (cold)  That's all perfectly normal. 

                    If you took all the T5 numbers that have been drawn since Day1, and plotted them on a graph, you'd get a "normal distribution" or a terrific looking bell curve.  And a few numbers like the 6 and 10 would be at the far right side of the curve (most amount of hits) and a few numbers like the 11 and 25 would be at the far left side of the curve. (least amount of hits) And there'd be a TON of numbers in the middle of the curve.  There's nothing paradoxical about that. 

                    So when some purist math major tells you "You cant predict the numbers, the balls in the machine have no memory!"  (That's a quote from my math major daughter)  You tell 'em "Oh yeah? Why's the 6 so hot and the 3 so cold? And how come I won 25 bucks playing the super hot 17 last night?"  I guarantee you they wont have answer!  G5

                        Here's a little something I discovered using my copy of A+ software.

                        If any number is going to hit about 60 times in any given year, then on June 30th of that year it's gotta have around 30 hits, or it wont make it to 60.  Any number with approximately 60 hits for the year is usually the hottest number for that year.

                        I looked back at each year from 2014 to 2010, and checked the number of hits from January 1st to June 30th.

                        Here's what I saw:

                        In 2010 the 6 had the most hits with 58, and on June 30th it had 26 hits.

                        In 2011 the 16 lead the way with 58 hits and by June 30th it had 32 hits. 

                        In 2012 the 19 led the way with 58 hits and by June 30th it had 25 hits.

                        In 2013 the 7 had 59 hits and by June 30th it had 32 hits.

                        In 2014 the 4 and the 17 each had 59 hits. The 4 had 30 hits by June 30th and the 17 had 29.

                        We'll see where the 6 and 17 stand on June 30th.  They've each got 22 hits this year, I have to believe they're both gonna make it to about 60 hits for the year especially if they've got at least 30 hits on June 30th.  In the last 365 drawings, the 17 has 64 hits and the 6 has 60.  If the 6 and 17 are still strong on June 30th, then I'm playing them heavily during the second half of the year.  G5
