Not sure where to post this thread. Figure I'd try here.

Anyways, I consider myself a thinker. One who likes to come up with ideas that make people have to think befor they think they know the answer. So I was wondering, if I go to a hypnotist, and tell him to direct me in the following way...

(I'm currently under hypnosis.)

Hypnotist-"The next time you go to a convenience store, you will play the lottery, and you WILL pick the winning lottery numbers."

Now, after he plants that into my head, would it work?

No?

Why not?

It would most likely work on only those people who go into a convenience store and purposely pick losing numbers.

Otherwise, I'd guess people who buy lottery tickets are selecting what they would expect to win.

A simple way to get rich? Become a hypnotist and charge high prices to tell gullible people that they will win the lotto.

You must be Greek, because only Greeks are obsessed with getting rich fast and easy. Just kidding.
No, won't work, because neither you nor the hypnotist nor your subconscious has any way of knowing which lottery ticket will win big. If it were possible we would have heard it in the news already.

No it wouldn't work because you don't know either consciously or sub consciously what the winning numbers will be. You would have as much chance using a Crystal Ball

As for a simple way to get rich, get reincarnated into the body of someone who has rich privileged parents, preferably a white male, moderately intelligent (not essential) and be willing to step on anyone to get to a big fat pile of lovely cash.

Or rob a bank...

Or have a really good idea for a business or product, work really hard and get really lucky

I'm not exactly sure why I am posting a reply, because I am thinking that this must be a joke. But I will assume for now that you are not joking.
You say that you are a thinker, so I will also assume that you gave this some thought prior to taking the time to type it out and post it on here. I am very interested in knowing exactly what your thought process was on this. Considering that the lottery is a game of chance. Ping pong balls move around inside a drum, and are sucked up one a time until the appropriate amount of numbers are reached. What "thinking" did you do to figure that hypnosis could, in anyway, cause the numbers you have chosen to be brought up to make you a winner?

I was just curious. Theres a comedian that frequents a comedy spot here who hypnotizes people on stage and gets them to do things under hypnosis that they wouldnt normally do, and when they awake, habve no clue what they did.

I always wondered if he told them to write down tomorrows winning numbers while they were under, what exactly would happen. By hypnosis law, wouldnt they have to write down the winning numbers? Or would it create a paradox, and open up the nexus of the univerese?

Lol.

Actually there was a guy named Edgar Cayce who is said to have been able to put himself into a hypnotic trance and was able to predict the future. From what I have read about him he was pretty darn accurate. So you might be on to something.

Hypnosis law? No, they can't write down something they do not know, it's as simple as that. There's a difference between saying "write down your worste secret" and "Write down tomorrows winning lottery numbers", and that is that one of those commands is actually possible. Also note that there's a difference between saying "Act like a chicken" and "Fly like a bird"...do you really expect a person will start flying for real?

However i think the simple way to get rich is work hard on the things you are good at and seize every chance.

Quit working for the man and start your own business. Produce something that the world needs e.g. porn, weapons, and experimental equipment.

Yeah, yeah, hehehe. Me too. Seriously though most of the rich, happy people I've met own their own business.

I'm 18, and i have some very dumb friends.

One of which had great plans.

All of which took place after he won the lottery.

Rofl!


Hey tho, you know there's a market for anything... if it exists, there is porn of it.

Just gotta grab the right 'OMG' thing and get to it before someone else does.

I get too distracted when I try and think of something, and, well, there's always next time...

Yeah, I mean OMG. I'm going to open a restaruant named Florida Fried Chicken. I'll serve super sweet tea and the deepest fried chicken you can get legally. And you know what? I'll make a sh--t load of money. Supply and demand my friends. The lottery should be your last resort.
