Don’t do it. Think of the kids. Think of US, Mitchell.

I think the only gambling I’ve ever done in my life (aside from scratchies given as gifts but I’ve never bought any personally) is playing a slot machine once BUT NOPE TOO LATE I’M SUCKED INTO THE GAMBLING HOLE.

Reading up on Powerball and getting really into it now. It’s incredible the patterns you learn if you analyse the numbers.

For example, I read that apparently on average there’s a 59% chance that a winning number will be the same as one of the winning numbers from the preceding round. I decided to take a look at some actual recent Powerball results (regular winning numbers before the dash and the winning Powerball number after).

Aug 21st: 5 7 8 19 32 40 - 12

Aug 14th: 1 8 12 26 31 38 - 6

Aug 7th: 7 12 26 27 31 32 - 12

Jul 31st: 5 16 23 24 31 37 - 15

Jul 24th: 1 8 11 15 21 31 - 20

Jul 17th: 1 6 9 31 38 39 - 10

Jul 10th: 10 13 15 20 21 33 - 2

Jul 3rd: 26 27 28 31 36 38 - 15

[No numbers from Jul 3rd came from Jun 26th]

Jun 26th: 2 9 10 20 32 33 - 7

Jun 19th: 17 26 30 32 35 40 - 19

So a bolded number appears immediately before or after that round. You have to go back eight rounds before a winning number doesn’t appear in the preceding round.

And look at Aug 14th and Aug 7th! 12, 26, and 31 ARE ALL REPEATED and in Aug 7th on top of appearing in the regular winning numbers 12 was also the winning Powerball number.

We can also see that 31 was on an extreme hot streak and so is 12 now.

That shit is amazing.

Dang I went to enter the Powerball before and by the time I got it all entered I missed the cutoff by like a minute. I swear to god if my numbers happen to win…

That’s how I remember the Shrek marathon, right jocelynseip and laserscrewdriver?

Writing up dreams is always so draining for me. I was like ALRIGHT I’m finally gonna write up these (now) fifteen dreams and I’ve written up eleven but nah that’s it I’m done for tonight.
