So today's results were kind of ho-hum right?
07/04/2015; Day: 1,0,6; Night: 5,4,8
Hmm, let's see if we can find anything interesting about those numbers.
I know! Let's search Pi to see if those numbers 1-0-6-5-4-8 are there in order.
Oh look! There they are at the 1011th digit of Pi! 1011 digits? That's almost within the first 1000 digits of Pi! That seems rather unlikely for a 6-digit sequence of numbers, doesn't it? (The actual odds are 1 in 989 - about the same as winning the P3 straight)
Just for fun, copy out the digits of Pi starting with 1-0-6-5-4-8 and going on for 42 more digits. Just for fun, you understand?
Now paste that in here:
Again, just for fun, let's format those numbers as if they were Pick 3 numbers. So they end up looking like this:
106;548 <- Those are the familiar numbers from today.
195;203 <- See anything else that looks familiar?
Let me refresh your memory.
03/05/2015; Day: 2,1,2; Night: 2,0,3
03/06/2015; Day: 5,3,0; Night: 2,8,1
How nice that those two 6-consecutive-digit sequences from the Pick 3 just happen to appear next to each other at about 1000 digits of Pi. And, further, it's really no big deal that they just happen to line up perfectly so that you can just format them like Pick 3 numbers and they appear exactly as they did in the draws! No problem, right?
I've been at this since the early 90's and I'm flabbergasted. That sequence of coincidences is beyond the beyond. You could fool with this stuff for the next hundred years and never find a better coincidence, certainly not in the first thousand digits of Pi.
Incredible. I wouldn't be more surprised if space aliens came down the chimney and asked for directions to Chicago.
