It seemed effortless for mediabrat who played almost twice as many QP lines and posted detailed prize results for both MM and PB every draw.

I've run large simulations for one drawing to satisfy my curiosity, but I would never do it for forty.  I would calculate the probability of the results instead, it's easier.

    Anything done by somebody else always seems effortless, even winning a lottery jackpot.

        lol. lol. lol. You stated everything as unequivocal fact right after you said...........

                             "I'm pretty sure they've done studies on that"                       

        I could dig it up maybe.... I remember watching a show about it.  The thesis was something along the lines of small amounts of information could travel backwards split seconds in time, causing intuition.  IT showed evidence that humans could, some percentage of the time, detect when certain (funnily enough, erotic) images would appear on a screen a fraction of a second earlier than the pictures appeared.

         

        So the small amount of evidence on the subject of intution isn't conclusive, and even if it was, would basically be unusable to anybody attempting to do what you are.

          Next you will be telling us that the creative ability of the human spirit is just fantasy.........

          I never said that or anything like that.  I'm a believer in raw, straight up capitalism.  What you just said... is so opposite of my beliefs.

           

          BTW, yeah, you are plenty creative.  Creative enough to make up ideas and roll with them.  Haha.

            Boney already has numbers posted............. Any others how care to put their skills to the test????

            Is it safe to assume that you've accepted those terms the intead of your original challenge?

             

            Cool.  I predict an exact 50/50 chance that I'll beat you Jester Laugh

                  Am I right in assuming that you will be picking 28 numbers based on your method?

                   

                  If that is the case, I will do the same, using an RNG - assuming you're OK with that.  I'll keep it plain and simple.

                   

                  1, 4, 8, 12, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 31, 35, 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 46, 53, 54, 56

                   

                  Not sure if you wanted me to use a bonus ball.  RNG says 45.

                   

                  This was intended, on my end, for mega millions.  If you wanted to use Powerball, let me know, and I'll generate a new set of numbers with the RNG.

                      I think there is a very high probability that QPs suck in competition with self picks.

                          Am I supposed to do a new set of RNGed numbers, or will you leave the same up for the challenge?

                           

                          No preference either way.  It's easier for me to run with the same set, but I can make a new one every draw.

                            The rule is, its your choice. Keep the same or change as often as you like. Technically this is a self pick game, but I think using RNG numbers to muck it up will be a good object lesson for all the boys and girls. lol.
