I voted "other" because I think we bring jinxes upon ourselves just as we bring good fortune.  Once you give credit to a jinx, you're jinxed.

ITA, If you speak a thing into exixtence, then it will be.

    Sounds like my former days with the stock market.  Maybe we're related!

       OK, re: jinxes, what about things like The Cover of Sports Illustrated jinx? (A tram that appers on the cover just prior to a championship, playoff, or Super Bowl, loses)

      Or how many times have you heard an announcer say something like this - " Game tied, 4th quarter, 15 seconds left. Baltimore has never beaten the Pats when the game was tied in the 4th quart....it's up! It's good! The Ravens win!"

      Or, the classic one about the announcer saying a picher has a no-hitter going and the very next pitch is a hit to break up the no-hitter!

      Scared

       And of coure, (Where's Rick G.?), the team with the most ex-Cubs on it loses the World Series!

      Coin Toss, 

      This is so true....how many times have we heard an announcer put the jinx on an athlete? 

      "Here we are...she's trying for a triple sow-cow with a camel toe...she's had problems all week with it in practice...Ohhh, she slipped...this will cost her points."

      The Cubs are a whole different story.  They need to make amends with a goat and a Greek Guy.  Their progeny is apparently cursed.  But the sports announcers never fail to bring that curse to the attention of the hopeful fans when the Cubs are in a position to win something.  "No soup for you!!!  Gyros with extra cucumber sauce...NEXT!!!"

      Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

          I don't know that I believe in jinxes, but whenever I buy a ticket at the store, I really hope that the clerk doesn't say "Good luck ", because I swear, every time they do the ticket is a loser....and if they don't, it's a winner. Now if I could just put tape over their mouths before I buy the darn ticket !

              One of my co-workers is a Mr. Magoo type driver. Has NO awareness of other drivers, just goes along and probably pi**'s alot of other drivers off. YET, not ever has he been in an accident. Most would say he is dern lucky given his attitude of non chalent when on the road. I personally think if you are a driver on the road he is on, you are UNLUCKY. You;ll have the accident due to his carelessness in watching other drivers. Drifts into turning lanes...doesnt signal...

              Your unluckiness has NOTHING to do with your attitude but everything to do with Mr Magoos attitude of indifference to other drivers. Sometimes your the windshield..sometimes your the bug....

                You're killing me. You know somebody is going to come up with a camel toe system now.

                Scared

                Cubs, a black cat and Shea stadium come to mind.

                Bang Head

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  Yes, there are definitely people who are jinxed.

                  Stay away from people who are deceptive, people who are always looking for or to create tension, friction & stress. Especially drama kings & queens.

                  When I uncover the above statements in someone or a group of people in general I get out from among them quickly & I don't look back.

                    I don't know why, but when I read this, I suddenly got an urge for a milk shake.  A triple sow-cow sounds like something you'd buy at Dairy Queen.

                    Shame on you guys!  Camel toe?  This is a family site!!

                      OK, people who bet on numbers tend to believe in luck, gambling and sports are rampant with luck and superstitions, so for this poll let's just consider that a given.

                      But do you believe in jinxes, that some people are just flat unlucky or jinxed?
