    I guess that means that lottery players are the biggest insane community in the world.

          Welcome to the asylum Wink

          If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
          If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                Well.......

                I guess this means you aren't going to post 100 lines for the next draw?

                Dang. I was SO looking forward to it.

                  In my opinion Einstein never intended this statement to apply to a closed number universe where the answer changes with each sampling.   In the example of lottery, doing the same thing every time is a valid response as is doing something different every time.  You can wait for it to come to you, or chase it.

                        I don't think playing the lottery is insanity (unless you're betting entire pay checks on it) but going into long, long discussions about what you're going to buy with a jackpot that you haven't won yet is. 

                        Scared

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
