The Derren Brown Experiment

So, Wednesday evening, we watched one of the UK's most famous magician/illusionist/mind twister/weirdy man, Derren Brown, predict the 6 winning lottery numbers. Tonight, he has shown us exactly how he did this.

There has been a lot of speculation on the web and in the press about how he did this. Mostly pointing to foul play/camera trickery, and I have to admit, skeptical me does buy that explanation.

However, just for fun, I'd like to try out the method Derren claims to have used, so I'm asking for your help.

I need as many people as possible to give me 6 random numbers between 1 and 49. I won't use your actual numbers, it will be a combination of everyones.

The next UK draw is tomorrow night, so please take a minute just to help out in the experiment asap.

If by some bizarre reason it works, I'll be sure to compensate anyone who offers their numbers! Tomorrow's draw is worth 7 million pounds!

To get the ball rolling (scuse the pun) here are my 6 random numbers:
03 - 07 - 17 - 44 - 32 - 29

Good luck everyone!

ps. I'll post the results up tomorrow evening along with the 6 numbers we collectively picked (with the secret formula) and let's see how we get on!.

pps. If you don't know of Derren Brown, he is worth looking up, he's quite a freaky dude that I'm strangely drawn to. Unfortunately for me, he is more likely to be drawn to my boyfriend.

ppps. If you never hear from me again, I've probably won and am off sunning myself in Barbados, but I'll send you a postcard... ;-)

pppps. Another sweetie giveaway is coming soon... check in soon to find out more!

I couldn't get my head around this at all. I'm so bad with numbers.
