Choosing your winning Lotto Numbers

October 1, 2014

Winning the lottery might be less likely to happen than being struck by lightning, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t play it. You can’t win the lottery at all if you don’t ever play it, right? Some people are quite fortunate and can win the lottery multiple times, whilst others simply purchase ticket after ticket and can’t even win a minor prize. Picking your Saturday lotto numbers is definitely one part luck, one part strategy, and probably one part fate. Though we can’t really control luck or fate, we can control the strategy portion of picking our lotto numbers. Here are a few strategies that have worked for people in the past.

Using the Quick Pick or Easi-Pick System

What’s easier than letting the computer pick your numbers for you? Though some people would tell you that this is a ridiculous thing to do, other Oz Lotto players swear by the system. The Easi-Pick system does let you pick your Oz Lotto numbers much more quickly than the traditional ticket, letting you purchase multiple tickets without wasting much time on it. The downfall of the Easi-Pick method? Sometimes you get a bunch of tickets that have many similar numbers on them, making it less likely that you’ll pick up a minor prize.

Pick Numbers That Are Important To You

This strategy is by far the most popular strategy that people have for picking specific numbers. Most people will pick numbers that coincide with:

  • birthdays,
  • anniversaries, or
  • numbers that have significance in their life.

For example, if almost everyone had a birthday in a family on the 21st of the month, then 21 would be a number to choose for the lottery. Sometimes phone numbers are used, addresses are used, or even the jersey numbers of someone’s favourite professional athletes.

Use Geometrical Patterns To Decide

For some people, shapes are more important to them or have more significance then numbers do. For this reason, they will place their favourite shapes on a lottery number picking ticket and then choose their Saturday lotto numbers based off of where the shapes go through numbers. Some people may use crosses, others may use circles, and some people simply use diagonal lines. Whatever the case, there are many people who swear by picking their lotto numbers in this fashion.

What Is the Best Lotto Number Picking Method For You?

The best way to pick your Lotto numbers is to make sure you’re using a method with which you are comfortable. What works for one person is not necessarily going to work for another. Ultimately, the whole point of picking your Lotto numbers is to simply have fun doing it. So if you’re playing the lotto this week, good luck to you, may fate be with you, and may your own personal lotto number picking strategy work!

Create Your Own Tattoo

September 30, 2014

Though customized tattoos are often the most expensive tattoos that you can get, there is often more meaning in a custom design. With a custom design, there are plenty of opportunities to express your individuality in a unique and creative way. As many tattoo artists will tell you, straight lines are not the artist’s friend, so think about what you’d like to see in a tattoo and speak with your chosen artist about what they feel comfortable to do for you before finalizing any design.

If you’re thinking about creating your own tattoo, here are some ideas for you to consider for your upcoming design:

Which font are you thinking about using?

If you’re putting text into your tattoo, the whole point of it is for other people to be able to read it… right? Using a serif font [one that uses little lines at the ends of the numbers or letters] or a script font may make the text looks pretty awesome, but it can also make it pretty unreadable and costly to create. If you’re putting a lot of text into a tattoo, like a saying, quotation, or a verse from a holy book, then choose a sans serif font, or one that has no font embellishments whatsoever.

Have you considered taking a look at ancient mythologies?

From dragons to wizards to the gods of Egypt, there are plenty of inspiring things in mythology that can help you create an amazing customized tattoo design. No matter what your personal preferences are, there is likely something that you’ll be able to find that corresponds to what you like in mythology. The idea of a myth is that there is some truth and some embellishment to it, which is exactly what a good tattoo should have as well. Don’t be afraid of doing a little research into this area to come up with a stunning custom design.

You can never go wrong with nature.

Nature has so much to offer the human race that it boggles the mind. Butterflies, hummingbirds, lions, bears, bulls… the list of great tattoo ideas is almost endless! If you have a favorite animal or plant, take the image of that as a base, then embellish it or adjust it so that it creates the first impression that you want your tattoo to have. Many of nature’s symbols also have duality in their meaning, so a wolf, for example, would also represent your intelligence or strong instincts.

Do you really need to copy someone else?

Celebrities often get customized tattoos because it is one of the few ways that they can permanently express themselves. Fans will often request customized replicas of celebrity tattoos because it helps them identify with their favorite artist or performer. For a truly custom tattoo, why not try a variation of a favorite celebrity tattoo instead of an exact replica? This will allow you to express your creative side and your fandom side in one fusion that will garner much more attention.

Use the internet to help you find your new tattoo design

Rather than spending hours browsing forums and trawling the web for inspiration, you should consider checking joining a membership site, such as TattooMeNow. With over 8300 tattoo designs and photos, there’s bound to be plenty in there to help you come up with a tattoo design that you won’t regret.

Bucks Party Ideas

September 30, 2014

When it comes to the bucks night, there are plenty of options available. Some bachelors are very laid back and just like to chill out – a gathering at a local coffee shop followed by some time in a local record store can become the perfect bachelor party. Other bucks are wild and crazy on their last few days as a bachelor and really just want to let loose to have a good time. For those bachelors that want some craziness that doesn’t involve the local bar scene, we have these suggestions for your perusal:

James Bond Party: What isn’t there to love about James Bond? The man has style and class, which means he also gets the babes. He also lives a life that is dangerous, unpredictable, and crazy wild. You can bring that to your bachelor party in a number of ways, but one of the most common ways is to plan a “kidnapping.” Grab your buddy, throw him into the back of a van (or whatever hire car you can find), and take him to an undisclosed location. Bring the party to that location if you want or make your buddy get to the party with instructions that you’ve left him wherever you drop him off.

James Bond also loves a high class party. Drinks that are shaken, not stirred. Mingling with fabulous people. Going all-in when you’re just holding a 7-2 off suit. Bring that attitude with you to the party that you plan, no matter where that party is, and you’ll be sure to have a great time. Maybe add a casino night to your party. Whatever you do, however, don’t forget to throw on your tux.

Sports Party: Just about every guys loves some sort of sport. Some guys are a bit unusual and like less popular sports like lacrosse or squash, but still – sports are associated with manhood from a societal standpoint. If your guy loves a particular team, then having a party based around that team can make for a wonderful party. Go out to the stadium to watch a game if the sport is in season and make sure that you’ve brought enough money to keep those $8-$10 stadium beers flowing throughout the game. Don’t fill up on bad hot dogs because the best thing to eat after a good game is a steak dinner. After dinner, have a nightcap at your favorite sports bar, maybe order some wings, embarrass your guy by bringing all the waitstaff over to wish him a happy marriage. In other words, just have fun.

Are You Ready For a Good Time?

Marriage is supposed to be a lifelong commitment, while the buck’s party is simply a one night commitment. If you’re planning on having a good time, that’s what is the most important thing. Themes can help a good time to be had, but the best buck’s parties are where everyone is having a good time because they’re there to support their friend and the stuff he likes to do. Use these ideas or combine them with your own to create a memorable experience before the wedding… because who knows what will happen after he gets hitched!
