For over twenty years my pal Barney has been participating in the lottery. Barney and I are both teachers at a local technical college. He would every Friday, take the exit on the Victorville off ramp from the Freeway 10 and drive to the Flying V gas station store where he would acquire his lottery tickets. He would be cruising home from the Victorville Community College at precisely 10 minutes past 5 PM and arrive at the gas station 10 minutes later. Barney would then purchase his $10 worth of lottery tickets for the weekend draw at the gas station market.
In his long years of engaging in the lottery draws, my pal Barney has not taken home a cent apart from the single instance he scored $75 for the right three number selection. Barney went on to play the lottery despite the long dry spell, displaying a rare kind of fortitude. I was beginning to believe that Barney should just give his money to charitable endeavors because this would have performed a better mission. Surely, throughout this time, the cash he paid out to the lottery could have sent someone to go to college.
I infrequently participate in the lottery but would indulge at times. I would, at times buy some lottery tickets because it was my birthday or the birthday of my spouse; or some other special instance that would push me to purchase five or ten lottery tickets. But then I would determinedly avoid any number choice that I could relate to my mother-in-law who has been staying with us for many long years. I really believe that my wife's mother has no capacity to cause me anything useful in this life and so even the lottery tickets I purchase, I do not want to connect with her numbers whatsoever. By the way, I employed a numerologist to determine what my mother-in-law's numbers are. I'm sorry, I deviated.
But the most wonderful chain of events occurred in the life of my chum, Barney. At the start of last year, he began hitting the lottery draws. I say started because this was an amazing string of wins. This past 18 months, my chum Barney has hit the lottery an amazing 7 times. He scored five times the year before. For the first six months of this year, Barney has already won twice. About two and half million dollars are now Barney's accumulated winnings. Barney has consistently hit not the really major prizes but then often enough to make him a millionaire.
I then began begging Barney for his key to winning. Well, pestering my associate Barney did pay returns. Barney, who was a math teacher was determinedly studying the algorithms involved in the lottery. It seems that Barney, in the two decades of participating in the lottery was in fact running serious scientific research. Barney has now developed a working technique to win the lottery.
All I have to do, my good colleague Barney guarantees me, is to patiently wait several more months to present his lottery software to the public. It seems that Barney worked with Tom, a computer instructor at the same college to devise a lottery software program based on his process. But then I continually pestered Barney to give me a set of numbers I could play in the lottery. Unbelievably, two weeks after Barney gave me a numbers selection, I hit $85,000. Now that you know, wouldn't you want to buy his winning lottery software?
