Do you believe in bad luck?

If so, what is bad luck to you?

The most bad luck thing I can seem to remember is don't step on cracks as it will break your mothers back. I'm pretty, that suggestion is suppose to be for kids when their holding hands with their mother. Such as sinkholes for example. If you fall in one you might drag your mother with you breaking her back.

So, I have to say it right. It should actually be don't step on unnatural cracks. For it might be a sinkhole putting your life and whoever your holding hands with in danger. So, tell your kids to beware of unnatural cracks. I've seen you tube videos were idiots aren't aware and fall in.

I think it’s karma. You make your own luck .

There’s a difference between luck and chance .

If you buy a ticket and don’t win the lottery it has nothing to do with luck.

What happen was you took a chance and failed .

Well said.

I guess bad luck to me would be crappy things happening at crappy times.

As far as “unnatural cracks” go, I would say the one going down my sister in laws backside is pretty bad luck, for her that is.

Bad luck for me if I’ve had one too many and mention it.

That saying, step on a crack and break your mother's back....think about it.

It actually tells you to pay attention to what you are doing, to open your eyes to what is in your environment so you can get hit by a car when you are focused on the ground.

It is good to keep an eye what is in your path, but also it is important to look at the big picture too. It is also important to check if you are actually on the right path in the first place. Seeing more can give you the ability to better predict your own future, to examine if you are going into the proper direction. To evaluate risk properly so you can fend off bad luck before it happens to you.

As a sometime gambler at the holdem tables and track...



I believe in "streaks".....is it "luck"? I don't know what else to call it.

My lady who favors Blackjack will go weeks without playing because "it just doesn't feel right"

I don't know how to categorize it but I've had my share of it. It's difficult sometimes to believe I'm not somehow the source of all the bad luck I've seen. I didn't choose to find her brains or burn my down my home around my child self or commit suicide but I was there for all of it. I still feel it.

I firmly believe in luck, although in my belief it is the law of attraction and the focus of energy.

Like olaru12, I see it most noticeably when gambling, notably playing craps. When playing craps, the goal is generally to avoid rolling a 7. When I roll my best, I'm not thinking. I'm just in a spot where I know what I want to do, and I can go 20-30 rolls without a 7. But I cannot tell you how many times there is a good roll going and something happens to change the energy at the table and the next roll is a 7. It's palpable when it happens. The feeling permeates your body. What's interesting is that the casinos believe in it too. They will change up dealers when someone is on a win streak in order to try and change the energy and it usually works.

I have uncanny beginners luck as well which I attribute to this. When going into something for the first time, there is no arrogance, just mild hope and a knowledge of the desired outcome.

The first time I bet on horses I was 13. I gave my mom money and told her the horses I liked. I don't remember the exact details, but I remember that I had $20 and I left with over $300.

The first time I went to Vegas after turning 21, I knew I wanted to play blackjack. After watching a few hands, I sat down with $100. After about 8 hours I had $5000.

I unfortunately wasted my craps beginners luck at a casino themed party for my high school graduation. I didn't really know what I was doing other than trying not to roll a 7, but I just rolled until they told me I lost. I rolled for almost an hour.

Dice is what I've learned to channel my focus with best though. I almost always come out ahead.

ETA: You're question was about bad luck, but I don't think there is good or bad luck, just different outcomes caused by focusing on different things.

We create our realities and we also have karma to learn lessons. We can always find the the answer to our own problems. I think that we humans put too much importance on death. I believe that when we get to the other side we will be laughing at ourselves and the trivial things we thought to be important. Everything happens for our benefit.

I think if you look at the times you grew the most in life they were the times you were experiencing 'bad luck'. We learn more from our mistakes and trials than we do our successes.

Since I seem to have it I guess I have no choice but to believe bad luck happens. Do I believe it's some mysterious supernatural force, I don't think I'd go that far. It almost seems like it sometimes, though.

Always think of this song when I hear "Bad Luck" mentioned. Guess it shows my age. Trivia? Anyone remember watching this show with the family every Saturday night? Name of show?

HEE HAW! LOL Loved that show.

As far as bad luck? My poor husband. If it can go wrong for him, it does. It's uncanny really, and makes life a bit hard at times. Not sure what he is making up for Karmicly, but it must have been a dozy.

I've felt at times that life is just crap in general and it will always rain more crap on you every single day so just have to deal and do the best you can with what you have.

More so than myself... I know this girl who only the worst things happen to. She can never get her head above water. Every single friend that she cared about has died in just this past 6 months, including her brother and her favorite cat. I kid you not. All I can do is watch in awe of the horrible things that seem to happen to her. When we go out, she gives all the cash she has, spread among many homeless beggars. She is the sweetest girl I know. When her friends wanted to mooch off of her, eat all her food, offer them a place to stay... everything that should give this girl good luck/karma, yet she lives a miserable sad life. I've never seen anything like it.

I thought I had some really crappy luck at times but this girl takes the cake. She literally has two friends left that she cares about. One is an addict and the other is me. We joke how I should run while I have the chance, and seeing so many people drop in the last 6 months... It makes one think but I wont turn my back on her.


That's a tough one to explain.

I do not believe in good luck or bad luck or even fate for that matter. I think we create our own circumstances that lead us to certain outcomes. In some cases I can see how chance plays a part of the outcomes in our lives. I am not superstitious in anyway shape or form. My 14 year old son who is a baseball player is oddly superstitious, despite me teaching him logic and reasoning skills.

Never heard that expression before........and slightly disturbed that your other suggestions also mention breaking backs! Was it rough where you grew up?


Round our way it was "if you step on a crack a fairy dies" - i'd try to get as many cracks as possible!
