I don't know how to post a picture here but I have a picture of my Fantasy Five ticket 

my numbers 2 9 12 27 32 

Winning        2 9 12 27 33

ONE DIGIT OFF.  Not one number.  One single solitary digit.  Talk about being sick to your stomach.  I did win $555 but it's not the same as $200,000.

      Yeah.  I'm still debating if that means there is no God or He just really, really hates me.

            I generally check my numbers first thing in the morning after drawings. I was checking all of my tickets. When I got to my Florida Lotto ticket, and got down to line "G", I thought the numbers looked VERY familiar. The numbers for line "G" are 2, 17, 24, 31, 39, 47. I looked down at the recent Mega Millions numbers, and was shocked! The latest numbers are 2, 17, 31, 39, 47 MB 9! That's the closest I've been to winning a million dollars. Has something similar happened to you?

            I can understand how these types of situations make people feel bummed, but you gotta take into account the butterfly effect. If you woke up Tuesday morning and wrote down some Mega Millions numbers, but for some reason didn't play them and those numbers came out, that doesn't mean that had you actually played the numbers, you would have won the jackpot. Had you played the numbers, the drawing numbers most likely would have been different(because of the butterfly effect) and you wouldn't have given it a second thought.
