Another day at the Hellhole

Now, I know that some people would love to win millions from the lottery or even a few hundred from a scratch off ticket, I sometimes pay a few dollars for things like this, and while I never win (got $4 from a $2 Powerball ticket a few weeks ago, that was cool), I just get tired and bored of seeing it at work.

I'm sure a lot of us who work in a gas station or other place that sells a lottery ticket or scratch off is kind of tired of it. The desperate, needy, people who are selfish and push in line, claw at others, just because there's an hour before the machine closes and they just HAVE to get their tickets, there's one thing I will probably never understand.

My usual transactions with lottery people are the typical "I'll take the winning numbers for the $300 million MegaMillion/Powerball." Another reason I hate the lottery system is that is feeds the greed of people and it sickens me. Now, I don't have a problem with those who play for the hell of it, as I do the same but not to an extent of my usual lottery harpies. If I had the power to procure the winning numbers for any lottery game or the knowledge of which scratch offs were big winners, I wouldn't be working at a gas station, I can guarantee that much right there.

However, the moment you glance at another customer's ticket and notice your numbers are each one number higher than theirs, that is no cause for you to flat out punch the lady in the face and call her a cheater and demand she gives you her ticket, that's when you've gone too far. It's like watching lions feed at a poorly maintained zoo. Honestly, I don't know how some of these people can function in their daily lives without some sort of leash or protective suit.

Onori Dochoku

Origin of Onori Dochoku Onori Dochoku is an alleged Japanese supernatural entity that has purportedly been sighted in and around the forests of Kimiyagawa, Japan for centuries.

Onori Dochoku is described as a demon-like creature that must be summoned. When summoned, using the right instructions of course, Onori Dochoku will answer almost any question you ask of it.

It is described as having large horns, with the head of a goat or ox. It is reported that Onori Dochoku is always holding a small bundle of hay in one hand, and a hammer in the other. Old Japanese folklore surrounding the entity suggests that if you ask a question, and are not pleased with his answer, he will kill you on the spot.

Now, hopefully none of you are stupid enough to try to summon Onori Docoku and purposely look unsatisfied with his answer, but just in case you want to know the winning numbers of the next powerball lottery or whatever, the following is a set of instructions of how to speak with him.

How to Summon Onori Dochoku

  1. The first step to summoning Onori Dochoku is to be prepared. You will need the following:

-One large wooden or metal table.

-A small bundle of hay, wheat, or barley.

-A container of salt.

-A small stone.

-A knife or sharp object.

-At least one Shinto religious symbol.

Summoning Instructions

First, find a room in your house that is seldom, if ever used. If you do not have one, a small washroom or closet will do. Be sure to not have any electronic devices present. This includes phones, tablets, mp3 players, watches, pagers, computers, printers, GPS's, cameras, etc. Even if they're turned off.

Next, move the table into the room. Prick your finger with the sharp object, and put four drops of blood on each corner of the table. This step is crucial. After, put the salt on the table in the shape of a Shinto Shrine. Use the sharp object to carve your name into the small stone.

After that, hold the stone in one hand, and the hay, wheat, or barley in the other. Recite the following words in Japanese:

Great God Onori Dochoku, hear my prayer. See this hour as a time of need.

Repeat it until the table slowly starts to shake.

It will be a slow shaking, almost unnoticable at first. But after a few minutes, the shaking will become more violent, until all the salt has been transferred from the table to the floor.

Turn the small stone over, and carve the first word of your question. Next, ask the rest of it.

Final Warning

Keep in mind what was stated at the beginning of this tutorial. If you are not pleased with Onori Dochoku's answer, he will kill you. He is reported to kill each of his victims in a different, more menacing way. One woman in Nagasaki attempted to contact Onori Dochoku in the 1960s. The next day, police found her with exactly 666 tiny needles in her throat, circumnavigating her whole neck. Blood soaked the carpet, as it was still pouring from her neck when police arrived the next morning.

It was reported that due to the screaming that her neighbors heard, it took the woman about seven hours to perish.

Whatever the answer, do NOT show your disappointment.

And good luck.

Let's say there's a daily lottery. Person A buys 365 tickets for one drawing on one day. Person B buys one ticket each day for a year. Do they have different chances of winning?

Let's pretend it's like Powerball - the drawing is a string of 5 numbers plus 1 other number.

My brain says Person A has a higher chance. But it seems like Person B has "more" chances. Help me, mathematicians!

EDIT: Absolutely fascinating range of responses! Thanks r/askscience! You did not disappoint.

Do you have any predictions about an unlikely event that will happen sometime in the next 3 years?

Your comment will be timestamped so everyone in the future will know you predicted it before it happened. And if you're wrong we can mock you in the future.

-The winner of an election? -A major natural disaster? -Winning Powerball numbers? -A big company merger? -The winners of a major sporting event -A company going bankrupt? -A disease cured? -A celebrity marriage? -A new pope? -The value of bitcoin?

Try and be specific so people in the future can be sure if you were correct or not.

Developer here, making a "lottery winning numbers statistics" app: is this legal?

So as the title says, i'm trying to make an app that analyzes the powerballs winning numbers history (available for free on powerball.com), and gives statistics based on the findings, such as, what number appears the most in all the winning number combinations. A. Am I allowed to used these numbers to do something like this? And B. If so, am I allowed to sell this to others? Thanks in advance!

[Contest] Powerball

Ok in honor of my cakeday, I want to gift you! My husband is an avid powerball player and always plays 5 strings of numbers. All you have to do is guess what the 5 power ball numbers on his most recent ticket are. Powerball numbers run 1-50, the person with the most correct numbers wins! To be clear, you have to pick 5 numbers 1-50 to enter the contest. Prize will be awarded 3/8/13 and will be around $20. You may only enter once, duplicate entries will void all entries. You also must have gifted at least 1 person. You can gift anyone up until the 8th, as long as you gifted someone. Price of the gift doesn't matter either, just the gifting itself.


  • The drawing for the ticket I have in front of me was 2/13/13, Montana powerball
  • This was a non-winning ticket so the powerball number on that day's drawing does NOT appear on the ticket.
  • Numbers may repeat

The Contest has ended and the winner has been gifted.

Code review request for a beginner.

Here is my code:


#!/usr/bin/python def list_of_tickets(): list_of_tickets = [] j = 0 print "How many ticket do you have?" number_of_tickets = int(raw_input(">")) while j < number_of_tickets: print "Enter ticket %s" %(j+1) list_of_tickets.append(number_input()) j = j+1 return list_of_tickets def number_input(): i = 1 ticket_list = [] while i < 6: print "Enter number %s" %i number = int(raw_input(">")) if number < 1 or number > 59 or number in ticket_list: print "Please input a unique number between 1 and 59" else: ticket_list.append(number) i = i+1 while len(ticket_list)<6: print "Enter the powerball:" powerball = int(raw_input(">")) if powerball < 1 or powerball > 35: print "Please input a unique number between 1 and 35" else: ticket_list.append(powerball) return ticket_list def winning_input(): print "Enter the winning numbers:" i = 1 ticket_list = [] while i < 6: print "Enter number %s" %i number = int(raw_input(">")) if number < 1 or number > 59 or number in ticket_list: print "Please input a unique number between 1 and 59" else: ticket_list.append(number) i = i+1 while len(ticket_list)<6: print "Enter the powerball:" powerball = int(raw_input(">")) if powerball < 1 or powerball > 35: print "Please input a unique number between 1 and 35" else: ticket_list.append(powerball) return ticket_list def power_play(): print "Did you select the power play? (Y/N)" power_play = raw_input(">") if power_play[0] == 'Y': power_play = True else: power_play = False return power_play def validator(list_of_tickets, winning_ticket): winlist = [] for i in list_of_tickets: win_count = 0 powerball = "" for j in i[:-1]: if j in winning_ticket[:-1]: win_count = win_count + 1 if i[-1] == winning_ticket[-1]: powerball = "p" if i[-1] != winning_ticket[-1]: powerball = "n" results = str(win_count)+powerball winlist.append(results) return winlist #todo: make the answers from validator match up to prizes def prize_calc(results, powerplay): prizes = {'0p':4, '1p':4, '2p':7, '3n':7, '3p':100, '4n':100, '4p':10000, '5n':1000000, } for i in results: if i in prizes: if powerplay == True: print prizes[i]*2 else: print prizes[i] elif i == '5p': print "YOU WON THE JACKPOT!!!" else: print "Sorry, this wasn't a winner" print "Powerball checker v.0.1" list_of_tickets = list_of_tickets() winning_ticket = winning_input() power_play = power_play() results = validator(list_of_tickets, winning_ticket) prize_calc(results,power_play) 


I suspect that I could have done a better job with variable naming. I am specifically looking for any feedback as to structure. I know it makes sense to me, but was this an efficient way to structure my program? Is it readable? Does anyone have any suggestions for new features in the next iteration?

Thanks for your time, and any feedback! I appreciate it!

Could someone theoretically buy enough lottery tickets to guarantee a win and a positive return on investment?

Right now, the PowerBall jackpot stands at $550 million, with an estimated cash value of $360.2 million. The odds of winning a full jackpot (hitting all six numbers) are stated on the Powerball website as being 1 in 175,223,510. Each entry costs $2, so the cost of buying 175,223,510 tickets is $350,447,020. If that gets you a guaranteed jackpot win, then you're still profiting nearly $10 million.

I realize that there are taxes and other things to consider, but is this wrong? Would buying 175,223,510 and somehow guaranteeing that you had no duplicate tickets guarantee you a jackpot win?

There is also an option to add a random multiplier between 2 and 5 to your prize by playing the "PowerPlay" option, which costs an additional dollar per ticket. Would that be a better way to guarantee ROI?

I know this is a ridiculous question, but I'm bored at work, and started thinking about it, so I thought I'd ask the internet.

EDIT: Forgot about other people winning simultaneously. You'd have to dedicate at least $1 million to sending people around the country and preventing other people from buying tickets through intimidation I guess.

Powerball Jackpot is over US$500,000,000; odds of winning about 1:175,000. How much would I win if I played every number?

Edit - missed some zeroes in the title. Actual odds are 1:175,000,000.

Note the payout schedule below - you can win with a single number plus the powerball, and in a variety of other ways.

Assume, for the sake of argument, that no one else hits the winning number (and that I can find a licensed retailer who will sell me 175,000,000 tickets). Also assume that I ignore the "PowerPlay" because I want to keep my investment to $175M. Edit: Investment = $350M, because tickets are $2 each.

The PowerBall rules govern payouts like this: Matches Prize

Powerball only $4 1 number plus PB $4 2 numbers plus PB $7 3 numbers; no PB $7
3 numbers plus PB $100
4 numbers; no PB $100
4 numbers plus PB $10,000 5 numbers; no PB $1,000,000 5 numbers plus PB Jackpot

For those not familiar with the PowerBall lottery, you pick five numbers from 1-59, and a PowerBall from 1-35. For the non-power balls, you're drawing from one pot - a number cannot appear twice. The PowerBall machine contains a separate collection of balls, so a number can be a nonPowerBall and a PowerBall.

I'm not smart enough to write a simulation to figure it out ... can Reddit help?

Math geniuses of Reddit: Powerball Lottery is at $245 million, and my coworkers are discussing probabilities. Settle this for us.

The discussion is around whether it's better to pick your own numbers or let the terminal randomly pick the numbers for you.

My argument: The chances are equal either way. The numbers come out randomly, and have no memory of the past (i.e if I roll a 4 on a dice five times, The chances of me getting a 4 the sixth time are just as equal as the first five times). So if you play 2-4-6-8-10-12 every week, or get a randomly new number every time, they both have an equal chance of winning.

Her argument: If I consistently play the "2-4-6-8-10-12" (just an example) combination every week, MY selection stays consistent. And if my numbers stay the same every week, they just have to match the winning numbers. BUT, If I let the machine pick my numbers, the universe has to match one set of random numbers (machine picked) to another set of random numbers (the winning ones), which makes it twice as hard to win.

So, statisticians and probabilities experts. What do you think? How do "chances of winning" apply to the above two situations?

PS - We already know how ridiculously slim the chances are of actually winning and how it's a "volunteer tax" and a complete waste of money. We're just discussing odds.

What should I do? Do I turn my Dad in?

Just to set the situation: I'm working up the courage to leave. I love my parents and it's the only think keeping me from leaving at the moment. My Dad was the PO of the congregation up until they changed the title to COBE and now he's the congregation secretary, and my Mom is a regular pioneer and probably one of the biggest prudes you'll ever meet.

I'm not exactly sure how to approach this as I have proof my Dad has been looking at porn (at home and at work) as well as reading some pretty kinky fiction ( homo, adultery, pedo, incest, etc ). At first I thought it might have been a onetime lapse in judgement, but I've been checking his history pretty regularly and this has been happening for over a year.

The other thing is he seems to be buying lottery tickets. I've never seen the stubs, but when checking up on his history looking for evidence of porn, he has been checking the winning numbers for the Powerball lotto every week.

Last week, my Mom found a receipt that included line items for lotto tickets, and I had to listen to a boldfaced lie that that must have been part of the receipt from the customer before him. I'm not sure what she'll do if she finds out the truth.

I need an outside party giving me some advice here.
