Selecting Lottery Numbers by...

The Tumble Dryer

Buy 49 tennis balls, number them 1 to 49 with a thick felt tip pen, then put them in the tumble dryer. After a few turns, stop the machine and take a ball out. Give it another spin and take out the second ball. And so on until you have the six numbers.

Star quality: The method is a hilarious parody of the actual lottery machine.

Drawbacks: The expense of buying that many tennis balls. This is made even more annoying that they often come in packs of a dozen, four dozen being not quite enough.

Variations: Instead of using tennis balls, lemons can be used. This would normally be absurd, except that in this house we do not have 49 tennis balls but we regularly have vast numbers of lemons available.
