I do evaluation research in the field of public health--mostly federal (i.e., CDC and other Health and Human Services orgs). Mostly it's a behind the desk job but I get out every now and then to conduct focus groups for public health campaigns and the like.

I also run an electric full band weekly jam, and another acoustic weekly open-mic.

And I spend a LOT of time starting at glass boxes with little critters floating around in them....

That sounds like a cool job. So based on what you know, is the algorithm of these places really random or can they not be trusted? :-)

Scenario: A few years back I was playing my 2nd quarter on a quarter slot machine, only playing 1 quarter at a time. I won $900. If I would have played 3 quarters, would I still have won with the bigger jackpot of course?? I've always wondered that.

glxtrix
09-13-2006, 10:26 AM
haha, nah you prolly wouldnt have won at all.

haha, nah you prolly wouldnt have won at all.

That's kinda what I thought. Everyone always says "why didn't u play max?" I will usually go back and forth. Play low a few times and if I don't win, play max. I gave up on slots though, unless I'm in Vegas. I just stick to the tables.

burdundi
09-13-2006, 10:41 AM
You probably would have one the larger jackpot :(, but would have also lost 3x as much if you played the max for a long time.

Did that $900 get you any good corals or fish?

Well this was before I had the tank. I did get a couch, washer, and dryer with it, all of which I still use.

bigger jackpot- ouch! I was only on my 2nd quarter so wouldnt have lost much more.

Charlieborg,
Most people will say especialy in the GA region that Verizon is alot better across the board. We also have the best data network anywhere with multiple large area's coming on line this month thru end of year. No ones perfect but Verizon is striving to be thou compaired to others.
