how did you select what numbers to be colored, and how did you select the colors?

you have exposed the fatal flaw in my random choices. I selected them randomly, but since I made the random selections myself, they are not really random at all, so I guess that means I made the selections as randomly as I could consciously do so in order to deliberately create the impression of randomness. I highly recommend the book "Lightning Strikes" by Jeff Rosenthal for a good discussion of randomness and probability theory in lay terms. qtatwxs

BTW...I am no expert on randomness either. I really enjoyed, and learned a lot from the book. evnofxoc
