The probability of matching 5 of 39 numbers in a 59 number draw is roughly 11.5%, so getting it right about 50% of the time is probably a quirk.  If you've been able to consistantly pull that off over many, many, many draws than it may be relevant, although it's still tecnically possible.

 

I've seen my share of strange things.  What's the chance that I, the two other players at the table, and the dealer would all get a blackjack?  Coupled with the count being slightly negative?  Tiny.  Still happened.  What are the odds that I'd write down, the first time I played mega millions, a 3rd ticket to buy, mashing up the two QPs, chicken out and actually had the line a wrote match the first 5 numbers?  Again, that happened.

 

In the world of gambling, results aren't necessarilly all that conclusive, especially since humans tend to have selective memory.

so getting it right about 50% of the time is probably a quirk.

Im a quirk your a quirk eeee iiiii eeee iiiiii oooooo

          I would think Boney of all people would know its possible to use intuition and pick the winning numbers thereby creating BETTER ODDS......   The math professor may not agree but people do it all the time....

              OK dude, just so you know I'm done here.  You can keep going crazy about the fact that by all academic levels above Junior year of high school, I schooled you.  That wasn't my intention, but once you started acting like a complete A-Hole, I had to stop responding except to say my last bit.  All I was trying to say is that there is no logical reason to believe you can improve your odds, and therfore, the time you are spending trying to do it can be used more productively.  If that's not your goal, so be it.  I really don't care how you spend your time and money, I was just throwing out was was meant to be a a helpful suggestion.

               

              You can spend all your time trying to intuitively create better odds, but there is no shred of real proof anywhere that it can be done.  Your blindness and immatuirty when presented with logical evidence is actually quite funny.  Mostly because it seems I (by mistake) broke you down into a 10 year old who spends all his time trying to make fun of someone who just doesn't care what you think.

               

              I'm going to leave this forum.  Chances are I won't come back unless somebody wants to have a logical disussion (or argument) but not if you want to just act like an immature little kid.
