Some people have too much education and not enough common sense.

Amen to that!

... and there are some who have neither

... too bad I haven't found many who have both (wouldn't that be a nice group!!)

    I have spreadsheets that do the picking for me so it only takes a few seconds. Writing those spreadsheets, though, is a whole different story. Bang Head

      Inquiring minds want to know: 

      What does having an advanced degree have to do with whether or not anyone would play the numbers?  I would wager that there are quite a few of us with multiple 'higher degrees' floating around here on Lottery Post.

      lol! I agree. I have a master'ss degree and I play more after earning it than before. Research will show that people with 6 figured salaries play the lottery just as much as low income professionals.

      It takes all kinds

        I am a stay at home mom and I usually take a break from the kids and get on here and pick numbers during my breakfast and lunch daily ;)

              I normally play jackpots games that only have 2-3 drawings per week which allows me to work on my system a little bit at a time between drawings.  This afternoon I decided to play MM tonight instead Ohio Classic Lotto tomorrow so I started doing my work-out to pick some lines and I'll should be done before the cut-off time for buying tickets.

              I always keep my data files for MM, PB and OCL updated so I don't have to waste time looking up what has hit lately when I decide it's a go.  If I ever win big, the time spent will have been well worth it and if I don't, I'll put it down to entertainment.

                I am going to play powerball tomorrow and I have just two lines to play.  One line which is my own numbers of birthdays and ages then a quick pick and I add powerplay to it so it is $6.  But if I hit the 5+0 which is what I would like hello $2 million or the jackpot.  I would be happy with either.-weshar75

                          All that work and three sequential numbers, which only happens 2% of the time comes up which my system rejects 100% of the time.

                          Oh well, I'll wait a while and maybe try again when the jackpot has build up again.  Mean while I'll just test and simulate.
