Well, yes, but so are lottery numbers. And there are people archiving those. Also, judging on the name, I presume the OP to be living in the UK. Which means that there's a 76.34% chance that the OP is either a bookie, his father is a bookie, or the OP has a gambling problem. So, my well-educated guess is that the OP either wants to bet the outcome of the selective best nodes, or wants to run such a bet himself.

What are those men in white suits doing? No! No! Go away! Go away! I hate needles!

    On my 18th birthday (legal gambling age), I went into a betting shop and made 2 bets. I had to do something "new" to celibrate that special birthday, but I'd previously celebrated my 16th, in a pub with my girlfriend and the landlord, so drinking was passe.

    The first bet was 25p each-way. It came in first and I tripled my stake.

    The second, I bet my winning, 50p on-the-nose. It came in second. I was even.

    That was the last time I bet on a horse. I'm a gambler that never lost any money:)

    I've never yet bought a lottery ticket.

    I've enjoyed fruit machines occasionally, but I bore easily, and with modern ones you don't even have the fun of pulling the handle.
