Well, ty Stack. If I was sick before, I'm even more sick now.
9 pre-draws...that's insanity.
No wonder something can be out for almost 20 years at night.
I think they're going just a wee bit overboard with the pretests. If they weighed the balls after the last drawing and weigh
them again before the next drawing, and they are exactly the same both times, then I would think they haven't been
messed with. Plus with all the security involved, there would have to be at least two people involved in a "fix".
I think the biggest BS of the pretests is in the last 8 words of the high-lited section below. Sounds to me like they are trying
to take the randomness out of the drawings, which is ironic since randomness is what they always "say" they are trying to
preserve. If they really want to guarantee complete randomness, the official draw should be the only one made. Let the
balls fall how they may. If something goes wrong, then just follow the procedures in place for just that sort of thing.
On number 4 in the slide show it says this:
Though the live drawing lasts 60 seconds, it takes hours to prepare. Lottery officials conduct nine pre-draws, three rehearsal draws, a verification drawing and two post-draws to ensure no statistical parameters have been violated.

The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.
Don't just think outside the box, crush it.
