The Wife & The Lottery

Recommended Posts

You mean you eavesdrop? Can't really say I'm ever forced to listen to her phone calls.

They need to ask the relatives if they dreamed of some numbers recently.

 

But my wife won 2000 baht recently.. (doesnt matter that she probably did spend 4000 to win that money).

 

So it must be working.. thai math after all

Immediately after the numbers are announced there must be a tel traffic overload. They discuss why they did not win although the numbers came from the new license plate of the sister of the neighbours husband etc...
This goes on for hours and then when you think all is said, a new strategy is set in motion how they will choose the next numbers.
They always loose money but never loose faith that the next lottery round will finally be the big jack pot!

You think its bad now wait until casinos are allowed to open up.  They may be Thai owned but only the Thais that do own them will own anything.

indeed,
and whereas I wonder how come so many lucky winners have multiple tickets, what is statistically in my understanding unlikely but of course not impossible, this is only discussed as a see, "you buy many tickets get big price I tell you all the time".


Strange enough, tickets sold in a set of identical numbers are sold for more money than individual tickets whereas the chances of getting a price at all, are definitely bigger when holding different numbers.

in any case, it seems it is not so difficult, and I will let you in on the secret.
the numbers do reveal themselves on the bottom of a freshly emptied bottle when looking into it up against the morning sun, really, I tried and 75, 50, 7, 5, 3, 30 and 33 my lucky numbers. Believe it or not, I played a large multimillion dollar American Lottery with that.
Another working strategy to win big on the Lottery is opening a many click web channel and tell straight faced (preferably with a scantily clad woman of the female gender in the background holding up number cards) about the moon, the stars, and the number of Tuktee calls between 00:08 and 4:03 revealing what numbers will be drawn.

 

Will keep you posted on when that idea goes live,
most likely after smoking you know what becomes legal.

Thai math, it's disappointing.

 

I bought some lottery ticket for my girlfriend and the last 3 numbers might have been something like 465 while the winning combination was something like 654. My girlfriend come to me and she told me she was really close to winning. Though it'd be impossible for me to explain that all numbers have like a 0.01% chance of winning equally. That 456 wasn't any closer to winning than 001. 

 

And another example of Thai math was when we discussed sugar contents in drinks. From the Yakult bottle it was shown that 20% of the drink was sugar. So I told her that like 1/5th of the bottle was sugar. But she said it was much less, since the bottle was very small. I think the concept of percentages aren't really explained well in school. Of course, I didn't bother to explain her, but I will do my best to make sure our daughter will get a decent understanding in maths.

The greed of money messes up people's heads just as many religions and for Thais money is a religion it goes beyond everything because neighbor and wealth envy is endless. The aftermath of what the number should have been and what was felt as a prayer for the next draw.

The only way not to eavesdrop is to crank up the volume on the TV.  Thai women have two speaking voices loud and really loud; especially, when it comes to telephone calls.

Who else out there has to listen to long & repetitive phone calls to friends & family members twice a month (same story for all calls).

The calls are to discuss the lottery, and how they 'nearly' chose the right numbers (For example, 'I chose 45 or 44 when it was 54!')... or how they chose this draw's winning numbers in a previous draw?

Even in the west where combinations of lottery numbers have so many more variables, no sane human could talk for so long about it... especially after no winning!

Rant over.

what phone calls?  i told my gf two years ago to stop buying lottery tickets.  (this was just after i confiscated all her credit cards!)  she hasn't bought one since, and nowadays doesn't even slow down when we pass a vendor on the street.
