Default Re: Luck

Is there such a thing?

I am highly against the belief of luck, i think its very absurd because it cannot be proved. I just highly think things are done for a reason. For example, your about to loose a basket ball game, and your all the way down the court and the clock is ticking down to 3 seconds, and your tied, you say to your self, "here it goes" and you throw the ball all the way to the other side and make it in the hoop. Is it luck that he made the shot, I think not, even though he didnt put that much effort in making the shot, he made SOME, he was aiming for one thing! and got it. There was still action behind what he did, a reason behind what he did.

any one disagree.

Coincidences happen sometime.

Luck only comes when you least expect it and have a lot of faith/hope in yourself.

I'm not sure about this though..

Default Re: Luck

yes...a coinsidence, but that even happends for a reason. Its when two reasons collide for the same goal...thats all.

EDIT: like two highschool friends who havent seen each other in years. Then one day, see each other in a store. meet one another in a store, its not lick that they met one another, they just both were in the same place at the same time wanting the same thing.

Yeah, you're right.

Coincidences can cause confusion sometimes though.

And BTW, do they almost have the same meaning?

I consider good luck as experiencing an occasion where something goes right for you, especially when it isn't expected. Bad luck would be the opposite in my opinion.

Default Re: Luck

Like I said, Abdoun, I have a defenition of luck. When you have nothing, you'll always have at least one thing, and that's what luck has to offer you. Me... I've never realy had any above average poop, so there isn't any luck in my life, but, on almost 20 occasions, I've jyped death. My frist one, was when I was 4. I was using a walker and going up concrete steps, and fell two flights, but when I hit the ground, I had but one, ONE bruse on my arm. other than that, nothing.

I've fallen through glass tables twice, each time not a scratch, fallen down wooden steps, jumped off a huge ass wall, (It hurt like hell, but i walked away from it), jumped and flipped over, HEAD FIRST on the ground, didnt even feel it, so on, so on. So yeah, would you say that's coincidence?

Default Re: Luck

i never really like the concept of you make your own luck...
luck is something we cannot make and it is really something that comes as a gift to many people.
i got a friend who just plays magic with any decks and whatever decks he plays with he's winning the tournaments. he plays decks that are pretty darn stupid and does nothing much ayet he wins because whatever we play against him he always topdeck what he needs to get himself out of it.

for me, whatever deck i play with, i will lose.
i made a deck with a lot of mana yet i never win with it cause i was always mana short.
so in a way i'm on the bad luck side, don't know why i just am on the bad luck side. i still have no jobs when i was contacted about 50 times by different people. i never really won any real tournament for magic the gathering even thought i had the most incredibles deck ! i am always in the $ problems type of guy.

soemtimes i'm lucky, but much more times i am in the bad luck cases !
i consider luck as a ROLLING WHEEL between people around the fliping world.
it just seems like many other people needs luck much more then i do !

The point - I cheated death more than 20 times, usualy without a scratch. I don't know very many if not any people who can say the same. That IS luck.
