At this point, I'm the only one that voted 'maybe'.

Part of me says 'no' based on probability, but part of me says 'yes' due to the imbalance in symmetry.

We'll see how things go from here on out.

I voted no, however, had the number pull been a simple sequential list, I would have probably voted yes.  There is no real reason why one set of 5 numbers (nonsequential all under 30) and another set (sequential under 30) should elicit a different response, which makes me think that I am answering based upon feelings rather than logic.

For further clarity, we see an answer to a question with a question as being in one of two beginning categories:

1. You are confounded by the original question.

2. You are trying to confound the original question.

The first, we'd have to say look at the question everyone: no big words and it asks for an opinion, not another question.

We suggest anyone with a definition question find a dictionary, library with a dictionary, or here's the online dictionary; wikitionary at http://en.wiktionary.org .

It's recommended that anyone having problems with the wording look up the word they are stumbling on and see how it's being used in the basic context of the question.

The second, well, that deserves no response.

Thinking this will throw in the sabot, "Define _________ ", that too is a question.

This isn't an insurance policy or someone trying to weasel their way out of court case.

We're using same language we all can agree on and is fully defined.

That's an awfully convoluted and drawn-out way of saying you think I'm an idiot.

Great, short and to the point.

Here's another one.

You go right on ahead and keep telling us that.

We find it interesting that when someone allows their self to be insulted simply because they are in less than human control of their emotions, that all of a sudden they become a fully functioning psychic and some how 'know what we are thinking'.

A simple clarification was requested and instead of providing one, you found it necessary to insult the person doing the asking.  It is you who are in the wrong, not me.

Like to use Stem Plot Charts made up of the last 30 MegaMillion draws. Here is the one made for the 3-20-2012 drawing:

0      1      2      3      4      5      6      7      8

------------------------------------------------

11    12     1      2      5      4      3     29     36

13     19    6      15    16     9     28

14     34    7      17    18     10

44     35    8       22    24     27

55    40    20     26    30     48

56      41   21     43    39     51

46    23     45    49

50    25     53

54    31

32

33

37

38

42

47

52

Numbers 11 and 14 had zero hits in the last 30 draws and are outliers so they are unusual hits. Numbers 1 and

6  had two hits, in the last 30, and look normal. 4 has had five hits. Seems like many hits come from

columns 4,5 and 6. Would be very surprised to see four or five hits coming from any one column and would

consider that event suspect.

Looking at the "None Greater Than", "None Less Than" Chart, the winning draw 1-4-6-11-14 falls within the

group 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14, on the low end of symmetry and in one of the posts stated another

winning draw was made up of numbers from 43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51,52,53,54,55,56, high end of the

symmetry. Since both groups are made up of 14 numbers, the winning draw 1-4-6-11-14 seems possible and

not suspect.

So I voted "no".

Thanks,

correction:

".... winning draw was made up of numbers from 43 to 56, high end of the symmetry. Since both groups are made up of 14 numbers, the winning draw 1-4-6-11-14 seems possible and not suspect"

".... winning draw was made up of of numbers from 42 to 56, high end of symmetry. One group made from 14 numbers and other group made from 15 numbers, the winning draw 1-4-6-11-14 seems possible and not suspect."

I just voted maybe, before reading this.  Agree with alot of what you have said.

Notice the 32 Mega Ball... wonder if 'its time' for it to pop?

Ah, good.

You see the other side of the symmetry.

The symmetrical combination of  01 04 06 11 14  is  43 46 51 53 56 .

to keep this in proper perspective, this is relation to the 2012-03-20 Mega Millions drawing, Pick 5 part only.

01-04-06-11-14

a lot of simply believers think the draws are random.however if they were then you would possibly get 5-100 winners on drawings which never happens.lotteries have to be controlled so certain high population areas win more,so they sell more tickets.you can make things in their simplest forms,but some try to simplify that,and it isn't possible.

My vote is yes because the numbers were too low. I know nobody matched all 5 numbers plus the Mega Ball on that draw because the Mega Ball Number was higher than the highest white ball.
