      (The Uncoveror is a journal of political satire and news parody.)



      Read the fine print at the bottom of that webpage. All the "news" stories are just jokes.


      Okay, now I believe you can predict lottery numbers

        The drawing machines which use the 'solid rubber balls' would seem to be tamper proof.  Even if the article were true, I don't see how injecting a tiny volume of a gas into 'celluloid balls' would have much, if any, affect on the draw outcome with such high volumes of air mixing the balls.  Personally, I believe that all of the major state/national lotto drawings are totally random and completely honest.  As a Powerball and Megabucks player, I'm thankful and amazed at how much time and effort goes into the calibration of the drawing balls and equipment :)
