Define luck. There are two kinds, you know.

Yes, I believe in bad luck. In fact, as a kid I realized I was very unlucky, so I thought a lot about what I should do about that. I finally decided that I could not change the fact that bad stuff kept happening to me, but I could reduce the frequency and perhaps the severity of bad stuff. So, ever since, I have been a cautious person. Yes, I still take chances, like riding my road bike along traffic, and backpacking alone in the mountains, but I always am carefull, pay attention to what I'm doing and where I put my feet (on mountain trails) and take all the precautions I can.

Thats my take on "luck". And no, I would never gamble; with my luck I'd be broke immediately.
