    with all the high powered brains on this forum, somebody here has got to have a workable scheme that i can use to find the winning powerball number. see, unlike a lot of people, i actually need $400 million. i have plans and i'm not getting any younger. there are some amplifiers i need to buy and possibly another guitar. or two. my house trailer needs it's roof patched, and i ran up some rather high library fines.

    so anyone with a plan, just pitch right in here.

    Well, if you want to win, the only chance you have is to sell everything you own and spend it all on powerball tickets to increase your chances the most. BUT, as I always say, "lottery tickets is a tax on people that are bad at math".

    You can roll the dice, but don't expect much in return.

    First you must have a scientific method of discerning the correct numbers to choose. It's quite simple, really, and one that most knowledgeable folks are aware of.

    Grandma’s teeth

    We all love grandma. She is the cornerstone of the family, and you have the chance to honor her. We all know the older we get, the more precious things become to us. Teeth tend to be a big thing for older people. No matter how old they are, they want to try to hold on to as many of their teeth as possible. So, you should definitely use the number of teeth your grandma still has, when choosing your lottery numbers. Those are some lucky teeth to have made it this long, and grandma is doing all she can to preserve their life. Why not help her along with honoring them in your lottery number pick.

    Your Tackle Box

    You’re out to catch the big one, right? Well, you need to turn to your tackle box for some inspiration. Fishing is much like the lottery. You cast your line out, and hope to rope in the big one. Count the number of lures you have in your tackle box and use it in your lottery number pick. This method is a sure way to pick the winning numbers. You could do a ratio of new lures verses old lures. Just make sure you include your tackle box content in the picking of your lottery numbers.

    Your Cell Phone

    Technology is a great thing. It happens to be a very major part of our life, so you really need to include it in all your important decisions, such as choosing lottery numbers. Think back at how many cell phones you have owned in your lifetime. I know this will be difficult because it seems we all change cell phones like we do underwear. I bet you could even go over to your junk draw in your home, and see how many still remain. We tend to cling on to our old phones, even when we will never use them again in our life. You could even use the number of old cell phones you still have in your lottery number picks. Those phones stored in your junk drawer are lucky they haven’t seen a landfill yet. It’s only a matter of time for them.

    Your Job

    Our career paths are a major part of life, and something we should never take lightly. Think back to all the jobs you have had in your lifetime, which was your favorite? Choose the job you wish you held on to, but thought the grass was greener on the other side, so you decided to move on. That is the one you want to focus on. Now that you have that job in mind, choose a number that is associated with it. Rather that is a clock in number, the number of people who you liked at that job, or maybe the year that you started working there. This lottery strategy is sure to get you the winning numbers. That was an awesome job, and you should honor your time there by including it in your lottery decisions.

    Your Shoes

    Yes… your shoes are an important part of your life. They carry you here and there, and they see a lot of wear and tear. The least you can do is honor your shoes by including them in your lottery number choices. Go to your closet and count the number of shoes that you own. That number should definitely be included. Why? Because your shoes have never let you down. They are there day after day caring for your stinky feet in the best way they can. You owe it to them. If you have any Birkenstocks...Don't include them...They've always been losers.

    Your Dog

    A dog is a mans best friend, so you should include them when choosing your lottery numbers. Determine how old your dog is, and that is the number you should pick. If you don’t own a dog use a neighbor’s or a family members dogs age. What ever you do, do not choose your lottery numbers without including a dog’s age in the mix. You will lose if you neglect this strategy. A dog is a companion, someone who will love you no matter what. That is a lucky value to have, even if you do not directly own the dog. You still benefit from your friends and neighbors having the love of a trusted companion. That in itself is enough to include a dog’s age in your lottery number pick.

    Your Powerball Number

    Again, simple. Add up your house number, your cell number and your license plate number. Multiply by the number of guitars that you own and divide by your number of amps and...viola! A sure fire winner!

    So...There ya go. I'll be expecting my usual 10% consultation fee...

    I don't know about helping you out but I see no reason for not splitting the lottery every time it hits something like 5 or 10 mil. So by the time there's 400 mil in the kitty it's split up into way more chances to win 5 or 10 mil.

    I'm not stupid enough to buy tickets the way it is now but if they changed the game as I suggested....the odds change a bunch. I might be stupid enough then...

    The chances of buying the winning ticket are something like 1 in 65 Billion.

    Buy enough tickets, increase your odds!

    so if i bought 65 billion tickets, i'm guaranteed to win? Aw, Shucks! wonder how many suitcases it will take to move that many tickets. maybe i should just use buckets.

    There are a finite number of number combinations...so, it's simple: Buy one of every possible combination and guarantee yourself a winner. At $1 a ticket, your up-front investment is somewhere in the neighborhood of $300 million.

    Now, the trick is finding someone to front you the investment money at a low-enough interest rate to still come out ahead...

    If the Good Lord wants you to win the lottery you only need to buy one ticket.

    simple as sin. eventually every possible combination of numbers will be drawn. play the same numbers every time without fail and don`t die before you win

    Okay...Cool. If you're correct, you would have to start filling out your tickets on Thursday, July 24th 1947 in order to get them all done and I'm figuring 24 hours a day here with the help of your two elfs...
