## Random Generator

**I almost forgot about drafting this post.**

**It actually naughtily applies to all lotteries**

**which claim to have a random**

**or whatever type of method the winning numbers**

**are selected, or (ehem) drawn.**

**Repeated calls to show how the numbers are drawn**

**at Western Canada Lottery Corporation were ignored.**

**So we will assume that the video displayed is the**

**official draw.**

**This is odd–**

**There are incessant claims that the numbers**

**are drawn by Random generation.**

**Now, we do consider drawing numbers by balls as**

**Random Generation?**

**Simply no,**

**because the balls themselves ARE THE NUMBERS.**

**These are physical representations of numbers**

**and being so can be different between themselves.**

**These difference may be responsible for the particular ball**

**to be drawn, such as difference in size, shape, weight,**

**smoothness, and so forth.**

**When every thing is even, **

**what is selected from a group**

**is truly of a random basis.**

**The criterion is therefore similarity in everything.**

**Random Generation can therefore be achieved most securely**

**in a computerized setting.**

**To wit : picture a computer with a pointer going thru each of**

**49 locations serially, not randomly,**

** serially, one after another–**

**#1 to # 49.**

**A button is pressed and the scanning stops.**

**The number it points to is a drawn number.**

**The computer is not programmed to stop by itself**

**because if so,**

** it will stop at the same number every time.**

**The randomness, therefore,**

** is not the scanning by the pointer**

**but by the timing in the computer’s cycle.**

**And since it is cycling in nanoseconds, the numbers are**

**considered drawn randomly.**

**Restarting the scanning will generate more numbers.**

**But of course, less winners of the pot would mean**

**bigger pots next draw.**

*(haw can this random generator be rigged?)*
