 Watch "Through the Wormhole" with Morgan Freeman on the Science Channel to find out. It airs today at 8pm & 11pm EST. It's very informative. So, don't miss it.

    Is luck real?

    Well, that depends.

    I came home late one night and one of my former wives noticed that I had my drawers on backwards when I took my pants off.

    That was definitely what we call "bad luck."

        Is luck real? No. 

        A bunch of things happen randomly and we assign the label "good luck" or "bad luck" depending on how we like the results.  Generally, though, we don't assign the "luck" label unless the event involves something we want.  Good "luck" is getting something we want, while bad "luck" is when something we want is denied.

        Also, if the occurrence was the consequence of something we did, calling it "luck" gets us off the hook.  Like Ridge Runner's story, LOL.  Evil Smile

        Aren't you glad you asked?

          Luck is the name for unexplained fortune good or bad.....Cheers

          You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?Patriot

            if you believe success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own actions
