Quote: Lovecomps

Anyone who doesn't believe in luck has never been in combat where something just misses you but for an inch or two.

Case closed.


Amen. The perception of luck, I believe, is personal. "Picking" the right parents. Great genetics and good health in spite of our personal lifestyles. Intellect and one's ability to adapt, learn, and grow. "The luck of the draw"; being born in the USA and much of the our circumstances we take for granted. "Close calls" that avoided tragedy. Is it "luck," "fate," or "faith"? You choose; there is no right answer.

I believe in luck and consider myself lucky ... Also believe that luck is an opportunity to use the chance of fate

My Uncle George was lucky in gene pool and in life. Lived to be 100. Was a fireman and got promoted to Lt. this was in 1957 I think. Anyway first day in new firehouse in captain,s office. Another Captain came in and said to 1st Captain “ I saved 2 ticket for my church drawing for you” Ist Captain say I will take one and you will take one , won’t you George . ? That is how my Uncle George won a 1957 Plymouth.
Years later George was in Zizzimos bar, they had a $100 a square Super Bowl score lottery. A guy asked George to go partners with him. George walked home and git $50 from Aunt Eve. But when he got the guy had got another partner. So George walks home and gets another $50 from Aunt Eve. Buys his own square, gets 0/0 wins 3 quarters $7500. He and Aunt Eve go to Hawaii.
I see George on bus one day. Tells me he has been betting 729, date numbers went legal in state and has not hit yet over 2 years, even had my sister play for him when he is out of town or on vacation. I play it for a month and hit box for $80. Put $10 to it . Tell wife gonna bet with bookie at work for a month. He pays 650 versus state 500. Three weeks later 729 for $1950.

Happiness is a word, but a great word, technically there may not be the kind of detail like randomness that is actually theoretical can carry. from within. I sound crazy, the possibilities are limitless or impossible. I love these things, the hologram universe, the simulation universe, etc. etc.If that's not the reality then where is the reality etc.

Luck definitely had a good run with the Colts He knew to get out when he did after amassing a fortune. :-)

In fact, I probably wouldn't believe in luck if I wasn't so lucky. Initially I thought that everyone was lucky, but not me, but having lived to my age, and remembering all life situations, I can say with certainty, luck exists. But it is not as global as you can imagine. I would also add, thoughts are material, if you think about one thing all the time, you will have it come true, it may be a year later, but it will. I don't know how it works, I think we program our brain for this goal and go to it without noticing....

Dunno what to say, I do and I don't. There were events in my life that I believe was pure luck but were they?

You misled yourself, of course there were, you just might have thought it was your ability to get out of such situations, but I don't think so, there are more often than not, fortunate moments.
