So I am pretty ticked that I did not win the Mega Millions last night.  Like anyone that plays the lotto I imagined hitting all the numbers and what I would do as a new wealthy person.

I always just do easy pick because I start to second guess myself on numbers.  People have methods.  Birthdays, anniversaries, fortune cookies and ages all come in to play when selecting numbers.

That is why I am not surprised that 41,763 people played numbers from the television show "Lost".  I was not a die hard "Lost" fan, but am certainly familiar with the show.  One of the show characters, Hurley,  won the lottery (on the show) by using the numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42.  These numbers haunted him by showing up on the island.

The actual winning numbers last night were 4 8 15 25 47 42.  So the peeps that played the "Lost" numbers cashed in at about $150.  Not millions but $150 more than I won!

Whatever method you use for picking numbers good luck, but I hope I win first.
