Thanks for all the detailed myopic information boney........

Funny how you ignored this little fact that I pointed out..........

By consistently picking winners I will NEVER revert to the statistical mean.

Good for you.

You're above the laws of probability and the nature of the universe.

You don't have a superiority complex or anything.  You truly are just better than everyone else.

You don't follow logic, you create imaginary worlds to play in.

Thank you for that complement boney.

Imagination is the reason why players purchase lottery tickets or play any games of chance. You're playing a game with a \$89 million jackpot and Boney says you don't follow logic, but thinks it's logical to compare MM to an imaginary game with a \$4 jackpot.

A Positive Energy Flow was created when you successfully predicted that your group of 28 numbers would match five numbers and the bonus number too. While the NEF people were telling you is was just dumb luck, I was checking to see if it was possible for you to get the same results by using 94% less combos.

It doesn't take a MIT doctorate to understand 91% of the MM million numbers won't be drawn and it's possible to eliminate another 55% of those useless numbers and still retain the five winning numbers. People with PEF will look at the possibilities and the NEF will give boring lectures about the odds.

I suppose the next boring lecture will be about "why PEF is an imaginary thing".

Right, the NEF is getting extra thick now as boney keeps trying to focus on the "You think your better" theme.

Your the one one insisted that "statistical proof" needed to be offered and as soon as I realized that it already had been offered by 6 different people you reverted back to finger pointing and drivel.

Now you an authority on "the nature of the universe"? Now there is a grandiose claim..........

Perhaps boney should take a closer look at:

"You're above the laws of probability and the nature of the universe."

You're only looking at the probabilities that support your arguments ignoring the fact there are other probabilities. At risk of being even more redundant, the probabilities you use don't change the statistical facts no more than 25 numbers can be drawn in 5 drawings, 28 numbers are more than 25 and both are enough numbers to get five consecutive five number matches.

The probability of 28 numbers having a five number match is 39 to 1 and those odds don't magically change to 38 to 1 in the next drawing when there isn't a five number match. The same is true when that group has a five number match because the odds don't magically increase in the next drawing. After two consecutive drawings of having a five number match, are the odds against having a third consecutive match in the next drawing in the billions or are they still 39 to 1?

Nobody is guaranteeing five consecutive matches or even 5 out 39 drawings, but simply saying it's possible.
