    It’s kinda like a spice of life you know? I feel that if you just accept things as, “lucky” it’s easier to avoid jealousy, trapping yourself, and to move on.
    Besides, 2nd law of thermodynamics- entropy- the world tends to build towards chaos, if it’s good or bad, is how we decide/look at it. So yeah “Luck” does exist. Kinda.

    Then,
    1. Do you have experience about that?
    2. Are Luck and Fate the same?

    And i like a lot your phrased
    "Luck is Spice of Life."

    1) No not really, well except for being born differently than people in my irl community, 2) and fate is what will come while luck is what’s happening now. Luck is a reaction/interaction while fate is bound to happen one way or another.

    It's hard to tell. There is no such thing as the world going out of its way to make life better (or worse) for anybody without a reason. If something does seem to happen - there must be a million (perhaps unfair) reasons.
    Life is a very very tightly woven chain, not a sequence of unrelated happenstances. Sure, some things do happen very unexpectedly, but that is just underwater curremts accumilating into a wave.
    All things are meant to be in some form of other. Not that it's a good or a bad thing.

    I think luck is just like karma. Its all Cause and effect but on a universal level.

    If you do kind things for others theyre bound to do kind things in return.

    The universe balances itself out.

    Every time I have to line up for something, my line is the slowest. Sometimes it gets ridiculous. I'd line up with only two people in front of me, and the first one will suddenly ask for 20 boxes of cigarettes that need to be brought back from storage and it's a whole procession and 10 minutes of waiting... Last time I had to go through the border and there were three lines of cars. The line I went to suddenly slowed down to 1 car every 5 minutes, while the other lines kept going 2 cars per minute.

    If there are scratch cards with minor rewards I'll never win anything. My dad once picked three cards and all three had winnings. It's a 25% odds for those particular cards. But it's 0% for me.

    If I buy something I fancy, it'll be 20% off a few days after I've bought it.

    I've never found money on the street. Not even a coin. My sister has done so at least 20 times that I recall of.

    If I carry an umbrella with me, it won't rain. But if the weather forecast is sunny and I don't bring an umbrella, it'll rain.

    So...Luck, we're not acquainted.

    Yes. Why? There's an old Irish saying: "Cheer up, if we didn't have bad luck we'd have no luck at all."

    Now whether Luck is a supernatural force or an incomprehensible web of actions and consequences resulting in unforeseen events is a whole other argument. :blobneutral:

    I think fate is something that would happen regardless of your will. Destiny is choosing one of the paths willingly. And luck is when you're given a choice in life and before you choose the wrong one something or someone shows you the right path. Not all choices are wrong, but for example marriage is not fate. But perhaps that relationship was fate. You were fated to meet that person but marrying them is your choice. But do you know if they are the right fate. Many other relationships are fate, maybe you'll meet another fate and that other one is the right choice. So one day, by luck you found out that person cheating on you before marriage. You'll be heartbroken but you're lucky because you figured it out before marriage. Anyway there a lot of other examples. Sorry for my crude writing.

    You know... When you play D&D with someone, and that person consistently gets more critical hits than the rest of the party combined, you just accept that they're lucky.

    Yeah, luck happens. And sometimes you have unlucky days too. Sometimes you're like, having a bit of a bad day, but hoping some other things will cheer you up... And then 5 different things that were out of your control suddenly happen all at once and make your bad day become a disastrous one... That's unlucky.

    Other times you just make a random pull at a gacha game and get the best unit in the game and you're just like... OMG OMG OMG! I'm so lucky!

    It happens~

    I think of luck as a probability. The probability of me beating the odds of the game. As in being 1 of the few that manage to be the 10% that won the game. Mainly just whether the coin will flip heads or tails.

    (y)

    So are you believe or not R2 ?

    So can i draw a conclution that @The Hamster Overlord is not believe about luck? But believe about your efford?

    Good Quote!!

    Great!!!
    Then can i ask @Mnotia ?!
    If you said Luck is just like Karma,,, can Luck be passed down to the offspring or descendants?

    You have,,, but your luck may not like other... And if you really don't have any... Ask your God!!!
    You knows my luck that i grateful to my God is that... My mom didn't birth me "the deed" before married and my mom is not a girl or woman who grab someone's husband,,, and my lineage also clean from that household wrecker descendant.

    Don't be discouraged if luck isn't on your side. maybe your luck will be your partner in the near future, that he will respect you who you are, and loved you daerly and sincerity...

    Great Person.
    You are not a pessimistic human.
    I loved your statement... @KageTokage
