  • bad luck?

    so i was talking to my friend today, and he is one of those people that plays the same powerball numbers every time.. every week... the same number always... on wednesday, he didnt buy a powerball for that drawing..... needless to say... all numbers matched, including the powerball... i called bull****, but he showed me 20+ tickets with the matching numbers......

    da**, what kind of bad luck is that. I feel bad and it wasn't even me playing. He must be really kicking himself in the butt.

        I believe it, that is so sad. What are the odds of something like that happening? Got to be something like a billion to one or higher.

            Wiki Sez: All 5 numbers, plus Powerball Jackpot 1 in 146,107,962
            However, since we know now that a win strikes sometime during the six years, that's the only important part. 6 years x 52 weeks x 2 draws = 1:624.

            If we work ignorantly, that the odds of not playing on a night are 1:623 and the odds of winning is 1:146,107,962, we get 1 in 91,171,368,912.

            What luck! Humanity hasn't even squeezed out 91 billion people yet.

              I was thinking about this the other day, I figure if I skip a week, I should tear up the card i use to play every week, I've been playing the same numbers the last few weeks. I was hoping to never have to go through this, or anyone else.

                  With odds like that, I keep thinking about the Apophis close approach.

                    Apparently if you buy a lottery ticket, you should wear rubber shoes and not go into the water, as you are more likely to be eaten by a shark or struck by lightning than you are to win.

                      I know man, thats why it is so unbelievable. You always hear someone say, you know if I don't play this week it will hit, never does though, couldn't imagine if it happen to me.
