The Gaussian knoll
I didn’t win the big $550 million Powerball jackpot. So it’s obvious that this thing is fixed. Go back and carefully watch the video of the ball being “selected” and you will see obvious anomalies. Slow it down and watch it in circularly polarized light shifted toward the red end of the spectrum while listening to the Beatles White Album backwards and you can clearly see that the “number” on the visible side of the ball doesn’t match the number on the other side of the ball. Also, check out the wide shot of the “selection” process. If you run the video through a Gaussian filter and bump up the white point adjustment to 11 you see a second “selector” in the shadows to the right.
I, for one, will be filing a class action lawsuit to get my $2 back.
