1. ## New York State Lottery

Math quiz folks:

http://www.cnn.com/2002/US/09/12/ar9....ap/index.html

Anyone care to pull out their rusty trusty statistics textbook and figure out the odds of this?

One clarification - you are not just calculating the odds of this particular combination - you are calculating the odds that this combination will match up with the day and month that it is drawn.

Assume that the lottery is drawn every day, and that the first number always signifies the day and the last two the month - this should limit your permutations right away.

We'll take the significance of the day itself out of the equation.

Prize? One FREE beating by Floman if you get it right.

2. just heard on CNN that the winning lottery ticket # for yesterday in New York was 911

3. I've seen this...

pretty freaky

4. Randomly drawn my hairy butt. I think it was setup. Anything that isn't draw on live TV like the 6/49, I've got issues with....just my opinion.

Ever wonder why their jackpots for powerball get so damn big and they have twice as many people in their states then we have in all of Canada.

5. The odds of it happening are 1 in 1 when it's been rigged :P

6. I saw this yesterday and was like... dang...that's freaky...what a co-ink-ee dinky...*shudder*

7. it so wasn't a freaking coincidence.... how many people you think would have played that number on that day? just a few.... they're just trying to stir the pot again...

please, things like happening are like an act of God. They just don't happen.

8. I'll bet so many people played those numbers that the payout will be about 18 cents per winning ticket holder.
