Are you lucky

Do you find that you have more luck than others or that you have had a lot of luck in your life? Or the total opposite?

I was reading this weird news story

A woman in Brazil was killed by the coffin carrying her late husband when the hearse they were travelling in was hit by another vehicle, according to Brazilian media.
Marciana Silva Barcelos, 67, was on the way to the cemetery to bury her husband, Josi Silveira Coimbra, 76, who died of a heart attack the night before at a dance, Folha de Sao Paulo daily reported.
The hearse was hit from the rear by another car, local police told several newspapers, causing the coffin to slam into the head of Barcelos, who was sitting in the front passenger seat.
The accident occurred about 110 km south of Porto Alegre city in Brazil's southernmost state, Rio Grande do Sul.
Woman killed by husband's coffin

And it got me thinking, I have had a lot of good luck in my life, not all the time but a lot, saved my life a few times as well lol.

So discuss some stories of your luck or no luck, and do you get it often?

When I was younger I was pretty lucky, when there was a draw for a prize at school or at a sporting event I usually won the big prize. But now and days it's much different, I buy a few lottery tickets and I never win.

So I guess I would say my luck is average, not great, but not bad either.

I used to think I was lucky but my luck has definitely turned over the last couple of years so I'm begining to think not.

Although people do say that luck evens itself out over a life time.

I don't believe in luck.
It's purely based on probability if you think about it.
Using logic, you can perceive what the chances are for a specific event happening. If a highly improbably event manages to occur, its completely normal. I'm in a College Statistics class (actually AP statistics in high school)
and such rare events occurring are perfectly normal.
One could say it was coincidence. I would agree because you could have over a million trials and still not receive that rare result.

Simple as...NO. Far from say i was more unlucky, but i cant moan about it, there will always be someone somewhere in a worse position than me.

Make the most with what you have
I don't believe certain people have better luck in their lives than others, I think its just coinsidences if you get (un)lucky a lot over a certain period of time.
Sure though there are things that influence how lucky we think we are and we don't even realise it, so put it down to luck when infact it was more likely anyways. Ok that was such bad explaining cos I can't think of an example to use and I have to go :lol:.

I don't believe in luck. I think some people put too much faith in "luck" just because a lot of good or bad things happen to them.

If I had to decide if I was lucky though I'd say I'm probably average. Not too lucky but not too unlucky either.


Hell, It's about time!
I wouldn't say I'm really lucky. Like I'll win on scratch tickets and might get $20 bucks on a Powerball once in a while, but over all not really.
