1,2,3,4,5,6: Probable but not likely

I am not a maths expert but I argued with my brother on a gut feeling that in a lotto 6 draw it is extremly unlikley that lotto combination 1,2,3,4,5,6 will be drawn. He maintains that it is a random series of numbers which are as likely to be drawn as any other set. I think that you agree with me when you say that such numbers are extremely rare and will be left out of selections along with strings of odd or even numbers etc.
Can you explain in laymans terms why this is so?

Can you do a page on your site on the basics of probability. You mention guassian curves and the law of big numbers. What are these? without being to technical of course.

Great site.

Regards,

Jim
