Half-witted optimistically pessimistic man enjoys the simple pleasures in life: watching paint dry,
oranges, not being eaten by sharks, intergalactic travel. I truly believe the glass is half full,
no I take that back...it's empty, d*mn it I keep drinking this thing, let me get another glass and try again.
Embarking on this wonderful quest of happiness and
self-fulfillment warrants companionship.
The goals have been set, execution and completion are all that remain.
A philosophical approach, perhaps, but one that
detail to attention and constant reevaluation.
As I am sure this is second nature, I will bore you no longer with
my ramblings. Listing characteristics about myself is rather boring and unobjective. Of course I think I'm funny,
balanced, and smart but are I?
I've never played the lottery. Being a mere mortal bound by the laws of probability and statistics
the odds are just not in my favor (1 in 175,711,536 to be exact).
Its more gratifying for me to put $3.00 a day into an account and gamble with the market. I have some control
over the outcome. In any event I decided that if there where a way to increase my odds of winning to,
upset the balance, it might be worth playing.
So I researched whether one number is more likely to "win" than another - which to play, and conversely
which numbers not to play. Downloading the past 8 years of lottery numbers from the Ohio lottery web site
I set out to find the winning numbers. I then wrote a program that counts each instance of every number,
this was done because I'm lazy. I then identified the six most winningest numbers. Now for the
tricky part, determining when this combination of numbers will occur. That said during the third month of every
year, the second Friday or the third Tuesday in all probability will produce the following winning numbers...
This paradigm is only good for the next three consecutive years.
