Here's something I always think about when filling my lottery tickets... the chances that the result would be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 are the same as the chances of getting 3, 7, 12, 13, 18, 27, right? So why is it that people would rather bet on the latter set of numbers? Is it because they consider 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 to be special and therefore the chances of it winning are smaller?
