I am not very good at suffering dumb-asses and thought that jimbo left LP for good but I see that

he just can't seem to stay away.  If he want's to hang around that's fine but maybe he should do

something useful.  His longstanding arguments have been repeated so many times that I for one

feel ill every time I see his avatar.  I would like to suggest that he do something useful like maybe

supply us idoit's with a list that clearly defines the number of hits for each prize level for every game

matrix.  This way all we would need to do is just check his list and instantly know how we are doing. 

 

Please don't take him too serious as he has issues.  He believes he is enlightened but a quick read

of some of his past post clearly show us that he does not apply his knowledge evenly.  One instance

of this brought to bear is he believes in evolution even when the second law of thermodynamics is

in direct conflict.   True science has proven that evolution is a false.   This will no doubt go over his head

but it would be a good starting point for him, if he's really interested to upgrading his thought processes

 

If I add randomly generated code into any program that I have ever written I am reasonably sure that 

it would not make the program better.  I started another post where I am testing a new prediction algorithm

and jimbo has decided that he needs to insert his comments without even reading the post to see what it

was about.

RL-RANDOMLOGIC,

What a disappointment.  When I saw that you had replied, I thought you would have addressed at least one of my two questions above.  Oh well...

https://www.lotterypost.com/thread/273424/3530363

If you would at least try to intelligrntly answer one of my questions, your credibility might move up a notch.

By the way, what was your answer in this poll, and what do you think of the simulator?

    I like powerball because I have hit four numbers in the past once for a $100 win.  I like how the jackpots rise faster than mega millions too.  So I bet my $2 on powerball and I have been chasing that jackpot for 17 years.  So maybe I will hit the cool million this year that would be awesome.-weshar75

        Exactly the type of reply I expected from you.  From your first day here at LP you have been more than willing

        to point out how that people who pick their own numbers must suffer some sort of disillusion.  What I see here

        is nothing more than an attempt to find some poor sap that you can belittle.  My points are valid as you must

        know that evolution defies statistical logic in more ways than I care to point out.  As a devout cardholder of truth

        I would think that someone like yourself would have upgraded your stance on the subject but I guess not. 

         

        My question would be, "who's fallacy is greater?"  I detect a bit of hypocritcy

        Working on my Ph.D.  "University of hard Knocks"

        I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

        they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

          Interesting.

          When you're faced with questions you're unable to answer, you try to change the subject to evolution.

          BTW, one of my earliest posts alluded to the fact that the "DISTRIBUTION" of your winnungs over time can be controlled by your number selections.

          Look back.

                  Jimmy the joy killer - stop telling people they can't win the jackpot. It can be done. It is mostly a matter of luck to be sure, however even getting 3 of 5 in a 75 number Megamillion ticket can be exciting! By picking 3 out of 5 regular numbers I was able to reduce:

                            From =combin (75,5)  17,259,390

                            To =combin (75,3) @ 67,525 

                            67,525/17,259,390 = 3.91%, I was able to eliminate 17,191,865 combinations!

                  And all of it wasn't luck either. I have a little system where I choose the LIKELY numbers to be drawn usually between 21 to 25 numbers for both MM & PB. I then wheel 10 lines for MM and 5 lines for PB. I am aiming to match the 5 regular numbers for a second tier prize of a MILLION! However, I will admit winning the jackpot with the red ball is still a tall order, however it can still be DONE. So get lost and stop spreading negative stuff!

                  He can only be a joy killer if you allow him to be. Use the Laws of Attrction and you future is in YOUR hands not someone else's    Some folks want you get down, think your odds are over a million to 1. I say BS. My logic and steps below:

                   

                  1.  Buy a ticket lol

                  2.  My odds are 50/50   I have a 1 out of 2 chance of winning. Right?  Your either going to win or lose   

                   

                  Thats it it now go play

                    I went back and read this. I sometime wonder why G-d sends us on a journey and puts people in our path. I can't /wont elaborate too much but I do have a system that worked so well I got hacked  so you CAN win a lot of money. The answers are right there in front of noses using basic math. Yes I said BASIC math. If you can add 1+1=2 you can master the lottery. The nay Sayers are here to discourage us to quit   Laws of Attraction is where it's at. BTW , I now use a computer with no modem lol

                     

                    RL keep on trucking until you get it. I've only been at almost a year and most weeks I only miss 1 to 2 balls no matter what fame I play. Now , some weeks I miss them all

                      I see the looking at the poll numbers some people just like to throw there money away on the a national lottery that is biased towards certain states.  I discarded my vote here,  those people that have voted for anything else,  just for the h@ll of it I dare you to tear up the money you would spend on a MM or PB ticket,  disclaimer: I am not responsible for what you do with your money.

                          Because MM and PB have awful odds.  Go play your state lottery.
