Mike’s top five tips for increasing your chances of winning the lottery.
1. Play regularly. This will not increase your odds of winning a particular jackpot, but will increase the odds of you winning over your lifetime. 2. Play some numbers over 31. This won’t increase your odds of winning, but it will increase the amount you win. Most people consider dates their lucky numbers, so they hardly ever pick numbers higher than 31, so there will be fewer people to share your jackpot with. 3. Play as a group. Buying more tickets = more chances to win. 4. Some numbers really do come up more often than others – 7, 24, 28. BCLC actually makes this information available on their website. 5. For a statistical advantage buy your tickets Friday after work. Most winning tickets are purchased in the afternoon/evening on Friday.

Just about everyone I know is on some kind of weight loss kick for the new year – here’s some free help. Mike’s top five little-known ways to get your weight down…
#5. If you spend a third of the day jumping, you can cut your weight in by a third, because for a third of the day your weight is zero. This method is only helpful if you use the daily-averaging method of weight control.
#4. Try standing on your toes to decrease your Body Mass Index score at the Doctor’s office. Seriously… 3 inches can give you an extra 7 pounds of leeway.
#3. Only weigh yourself on the Moon. 130 pounds on Earth is 22 pounds on the Moon. (Avoid Jupiter… you would be 307 pounds).
#2. Try hanging out with really slender, good looking people. Wait. Wrong list.
#1. Try moving to a really cold place, with lots of snow to shovel, high gas prices that force you to walk everywhere AND ill kept streets that make walking a more challenging workout!
If you want to make a Top Five List – and who doesn’t?! Here are the top five steps to Top-Five-Listdom, Jedi level!
#5. Start with a topic and a title. Find a topic that you are interested in and include the topic in the title of the list, so people will know what it’s going to be about right at the start (and they’ll have a chance to find something more interesting on the other channel).
#4. Make a rough outline of what you want the list to look like. Is your list going to be funny or informative or a bit of both? Do you want the funny stuff at the beginning or at the end of the list? Include the word Jedi somewhere on your list for bonus points.
#3. Do some Googleing on the subject and see if others have already covered the topic. If so, find another angle. Example: if there is already a Top Five List about ‘Why Disney should make the next Star Wars movie‘, make your list the ‘Top Five ways Yoda would kick Mickey Mouse’s butt in a Disney Star Wars‘.
#2. Make it personal. Your list should be based on your personal experiences, thoughts or insights on the topic. Example: the ‘Top Five good things about the Easter Bunny‘ might be good, but the ‘Top Five reasons why I think the Easter Bunny should be Pope‘ will be awesome!
#1. Just like Santa – make a list and check it twice. Spelling mistakes are unnecessary, bad grammar is redonkulous and nothing is worse than a top five list with four items.
