```Nathan,
While testing I noticed the same number coming up more that once in a
set of 6 so what I've done:
<code>
import random
while True:
q = raw_input("Do you want a lottery number drawing? 1 for yes, 2
for no ")
if q == '1':
numbers = []
for i in range(6):
while True:
draw = random.choice(range(1,50))
if not(numbers.count(draw)):
numbers.append(draw)
break
print numbers
elif q == '2':
break
else:
</code>
