I had a friend years ago who very smart. He could answer Jeopardy questions correctly 90% plus of the time. It was amazing watchng him answer with such accuracy. But one thing he lacked was common sense.

I forgot to mention he was a small plane pilot as well.

Anyways, one day we were having a conversation about flying and he told me that it's much safer to fly than it is to drive a car based on the death toll statistics. I thought about that for a minute and I realized that data was flawed. At any given time there's about 3,000 commercial airlines in the air, and anywhere from 200 million to 250 million cars on the road. With those differences, of course you're going to have more accidents on the ground. If there were 5 million planes in the air, then yes, but his math just didn't work.

I was dumbfounded how such an intelligent guy couldn't understand such a basic comparison. We argued for about 20 minutes, and I just left. He's the type of person who's ego won't allow him to admit he's wrong.

Through legislation, some states are requiring their lotteries to return 35% of their sales to the general fund. To do it, those lotteries will have to cut expenses, reduce the prize fund, or both. What they don't understand is that by reducing the prizes the total sales will drop. They will get the 35%, but the total could be much less than what they received from the 30% or less in the past.

Which is better, 20% of $1 billion in sales or 35% of $500 million in sales?

        You can only blame yourself for the lack of control over your curiosity. Regrets and lack of time are localized issues that you have to reconcile with yourself. Do what most people do, skip over a subject not interesting enough to follow.

        It's just like people who call a radio show to complain about the radio show. No one is pointing a gun at your head to listen to the show.  Green laugh

          OnlyMoney,

          It looks as though your friend had more "common sense" than you thought.  He was probably talking about the fatality RATE per mile traveled.

          "Statistically speaking, flying is far safer than driving. However, it may feel more dangerous because risk perception is based on more than facts, according to David Ropeik, risk communication instructor at Harvard School of Public Health. Driving affords more personal control, making it feel safer. In addition, plane crashes are catastrophic, killing more people at once, which grabs more attention and makes people more sensitive to them. Car crashes happen every day and spread the loss over time, making their combined effects less noticeable."

              It would have been nice if someone had actually posted a winning system and data to show how it actually won several top prizes is past drawings but this forum only asked the question should it be done.

                Ok, so let me get this straight. You know what Peter St. Pierre's real intentions are, what my friend was PROBABLY thinking, and I guess you also know what the secrets of the universe are.

                If you must know, he was only referring to death tolls, not miles traveled. I was there, not you.

                BTW, he was also the landlord of the house who lived at the house. Let's see what kind of convoluted logic you come up with to defend this guy. I caught him upstairs one day with a toilet brush sitting in the sink half filled with some primortial concoction created by the brush. After confronting him about this, and telling him that I use that sink to brush my teeth, his response was.."I don't use this sink". Meanwhile, two other tenants do.

                He also doesn't use toothpaste cause he doesn't like the taste, so what he does is clip his fingernails and rolls them around his teeth for about 15 mintues so, and by doing so, the clippings will scrub the dirt off.

                 

                I know you have another wise answer for this one too. Please enlighten me. Perhaps you have another cut and paste excerpt showing how used toliet brushes are cleaner than sinks, or perhaps a scientific journal on how nail clippings work better than toothpaste. Crazy

                It figures that you and he agree. It makes all the sense in the world now.

                  There are many different definitions of a winning system and considering the number of PB and MM jackpots won each year, we can rule out "works every drawing". If someone did create a complex system maybe taking four or five years to win a jackpot, would they take the time to describe it in detail or would they be doing all the things they dreamed about doing?

                  It's possible there are players using pick-3 or pick-4 systems making a small steady income, but most lottery players are going after the life changing jackpots. Even if a jackpot winner posted their complex winning system, how many of the $5 a drawing QP players will spend the necessary hours knowing they might have to play it for four or five years to win a jackpot?

                            I have a friend who bought several of his so called systems not just the cheap low end systems but  6 of the high end systems $150 plus range . All have failed at producing any Wins even minimum return on investment .

                            Just 1 of many bad reviews :

                            In the fall of 1999 S.Player mailed out a new system for Play 3. It was illustrated with a graph based on a simple formula. But in his new catalogue he usd a different graph for identically same draw data.
                            When asked by letter for an explanation he did not respond and when trying to contact him by e-mail on his site he asks for your "password".
                            It is a basic rule of computer security not ever to disclose your password to any third party, because it is often used by scam artists for identity theft. He refuses to refund your purchase money when you can prove his method or graph to be in error or the system not yielding a profit on backtesting.

                            What is Steve Player up to? Is he a purveyor of crap? Lots of members a LP seem to think so in Nov. 2003
