    Doesn't seem to be very active in the Wales thread. Just wondering how many are from Cardiff/South Wales and why we don't seem to post much in here.

    maybe because business is business and there are very few issues that relate purely to Wales?

    Maybe there should be a feature or directory of users which shows location as well as what line of business they are in. Would make networking easier.........

    Hi Homer,

    I asked a similar question not long ago but it still remains a mystery!

    Yeah, seems odd.

    I just realised that my profile didn't include my location so have just updated it.

    I'm in Cardiff, been on the forums for a couple of years but haven't had any time spare in the last few months.

    I think a lot of members on here are see this as a way to promote their business and the nationwide forums get the most exposure.

    Does seem that Wales is quieter than the other forums though. We're meant to be good at talking!

    Yes, appriciate that many would want the most exposure for their business, but from a networking side of things, I'd like to think a few would want to get together, have a coffee and a chat.

    Nice to see a few from and near to Cardiff. Has anyone ever met anyone else from these forums ?

    Don't think I've ever met anyone from the forums (not knowingly!!) but worked with a couple of members before.

    I think a Cardiff meet is a good idea!

    Any excuse for a coffee and 5 minutes out of the office!

    Well that's at least 3 people! This thing could be big.

    Any more want to join the cool crew?

    I usually get booted out of the cool crews, but put me down for a Cardiff meet. Met a couple of the South Wales guys on here and each of them to a man is a scholar and gentleman!

    A common misconception im afraid... 'Ahem' *puts on his teachers voice* ;)

    The probability of the numbers as individuals being picked out are equal, this is true. If you put the numbers 1 - 49 in a hat for example the chance you pick out 1, 2, or 3 is exactly the same as picking out the number 47, 48, 49 or any number in between, however, the probability of picking out number 1, then 2, then 3 etc is far far higher - much the same as the probability of tossing a coin and getting 20 tails in a row, each individual toss has the same 50-50 chance but probability would mean this is very unlikely to happen 20 times in a row, your more likely to throw a few heads in there somewhere.

    Admittedly the lottery do not have to pick them out in the same order, they could be pulled out as 3, 1, 5... etc. but there is still a higher probability that they will be 6 'more' random numbers.

    Hence why (without research) this has probably never happened in the history of every lottery draw around the world.

    Its like the probability of Man U winning their next game is very high, so high you wouldnt get great odds at a bookies, but if you placed a bet on them winning their next 100 games the probability of this happening is much lower, hence the bookies are willing to make it look more attractive by offering you a higher return if it happens.

    :)
