The other day I saw a local piece on lucky stores to buy lottery tickets at. The reasoning being that some locations seem to sell more winning lottery tickets. But can a lottery retailer be luckier than any other selling location?
Short answer: Technically, the answer is no. Random is random.
If you look at various lottery ticket result pages, you’d see that the distribution of winning numbers is pretty even, across the board. But how can a seller become a “lucky” seller?
Here’s a few trailers for movies I’m interested in going to the theater to see this summer.
One is my management role model character himself, Riddick, and a genre subject that was true to my young heart in its day, giant monsters, kaiju, in Pacific Rim. Both are pure popcorn fun movies. Riddick will be a 2D event for me, while Pacific Rim is a movie with enough CGI for me to consider dropping a penny on a 3D screening.
Check out the trailers below:
Director: David Twohy
Writer: David Twohy
Studio: Universal Pictures
Cast: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Katee Sackhoff
Release: September 6, 2013
“Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past.”
