So, here's a little follow up to yesterday's post.
That's, like, pretty clear, right? lol.
So, here's what happened. Today (Saturday) I ran the usual automated program that I use to scour the numbers in all the states and again, just like yesterday, there was a Disturbance in the Force in Indiana. I was busy this morning, so I figured I would get back to this later and figure out what's going on. It didn't take long. I back-checked the numbers by hand and found the source of the disturbance right away. Here it is:
On May 14th, 2016 Indiana drew the following:
05/14/2016; Midday: 847; Evening: 977
Okay, so no big deal, right? Well, check what Indiana drew on November 11th, 2008:
11/22/2008; Midday: 847; Evening: 977
Look familiar? A little, eh? Essentially, what happened was that my program fixated on that little coincidence and when it did, it skewed the heck out of the workups. Yesterday, I thought I'd hit a magic number, but when the same thing happened today, I had to figure out what was going on and that was it.
And, yeah, I'll know better next time.
Older and Wiser, we now return you to your regularly scheduled programming...
