I rather enjoyed the Derren Brown stuff this week around predicting the lottery numbers. It was enjoyable and entertaining, and anyone expecting anything approaching seriousness was always going to be disappointed.
But what of averaging out the views of the many to predict randomness?
I’ve set up Let’s predict the lottery! to do just that. Enter your favourite lottery number picks, and on Saturday 19th September, I’ll buy a ticket using the average numbers of all those who contribute.
We won’t win, of course. It’s a load of nonsense. But if, if, we do, I’ll think of something fun and good to do with the lolly. Which won’t involve keeping it myself.
