This should be interesting. I want to hear your true opinions on luck, whether or not you believe in it. I believe everything happens for a reason, but i know alot of people out there truly believe in luck. Let's hear some opinions.

I don't believe in luck. Everything that is accosiated with luck is also accosiated with statistics. I believe in statistics.

For example, say someone won the lottery. You call it lucky, but SOMEONE had to win and that someone was chosen at random given the statistics of the lottery.

And what about the people that got shot in the head twice and survived? i say that's luck right there, because there is 1/1000000 chance you would survive something like that.

Yeah...but think about it. Sure, it's a 1/1000000 chance to survive from that, but that situation is all about precision of the bullet. I don't believe in luck one bit, everyone is in charge of their own actions, and sometimes these actions can appear to be astonishing, just like surviving from 2 bullet shots. He or she did not survive from "luck".

Jake that's a good point, but it's not like if 1,000 people (let's just say) enter a raffle, each with only one ticket. You won the raffle, out of 1000 people. You really wouldn't consider that lucky?

Luck, in a way, is similar to faith, right? So let's say there's a guy who has a miserable life (not much money, and he just got fired) and he prays to God. The next day, the bank calls him, saying there was an error in his account, and they pay him $500 for their mistake (idk, lol). Would that be luck? Or was it destined that the bank would make a mistake, and reward him with money for it?

To me, the word "luck" can be interchanged with "coincidence" or "act of God." If someone gets lucky, it could also mean they are simply "blessed." Some say certain people are luckier (more blessed) than others.. I say we are each equally lucky (blessed), but we are all simply given our "luck" in different ways. There is a woman who won a $1 million scratch off, then won the EXACT same prize again, FROM THE EXACT SAME STORE. Some may call that luck, I just call that life working out for her. In her story, it said how she had tons of bills to pay and had been poor her whole life. I have never been poor and gone through the hardships she went through before she won the lottery. So, I think that evens things out. Thus, everyone has their own "luck", it just comes at different times.

I don't believe in luck, also.
__________________________

I mean, luck to me means that you where the randomized person picked from the batch/school/college, etc.
It is random, no one knows when this will happen.
Luck to me is just a word that means nothing, just like "Cool". It doesn't describe anything a person has/does/feel/is.
Luck is sorta like a coincidence.

That might be a bit confusing and a bit redundant.

I believe in luck. I'm one of those people who wear the same dirty socks that "won" the game last night to the next game. I do the same things before a big game, eat the same foods, stretch in a certain order, and touch a certain brick on a wall that 'grants me with the luck to win the game'. I don't know. It sure sounds stupid, but that's what I do and I'm not going to change that. It seems to be more fun if you do believe in luck (in my opinion...).

Yesterday at a baseball game, the biggest kid on my team hit a grounder to second. There was no possible way for him to run fast enough to beat the ball to first. The best fielder in the league fielded the ball perfectly, but screwed up on the throw to first. This allowed the guy on third to score and the hitter to gladly step on first base. Luck? I think so...

How about one of those amazing football plays on Best Damn Sports Show? This teenager was running for the hailmary and the defender slapped the ball away and the receiver dove for the loose ball. The ball was caught inbetween the receiver's legs and he was rolling around and around; sooner or later, the receiver had the time to grab the ball with both hands while still rolling and it was announced as a touchdown right before he reached the out of bounds line. Luck? I think so...

Yes; I believe in luck. Smile

i dont believe in luck. when something against the odds happens, its just a coincidence. or, as jake said, statistically HAD to happen to someone. and chosen, what u say isnt luck. everybody makes a bad throw at some point, and that crazy catch? its possible to do if the timing is right.

Having positive thinking wouldn't improve your odds , but it depends on what you need the luck for i guess.

to me, the term "luck" is just another way of saying "an unusual occurrence" -- that is really all it is, so if I said I got lucky, it pretty much means, something just happened to me that doesn't usually happen..

and no, luck isn't just positive thinking, positive thinking puts a positive twist on something that may otherwise be bad, winning the lottery has nothing to do with "thinking" you are going to win.. winning the lottery is, however, an unusual occurrence, it didn't happen for someone BECAUSE they are lucky, it happened because it was due to happen..
