|10:24 am - Extinguishers and testing a theory!|
Today, life just got about eight billion times better.
The fire extinguisher chic is back. . .
But that's not why I'm posting.
perlgirlju and I have established that I am "lucky".
Now, I need to test this theory. Because I want to be all scientific (of course), what sort of test should I set up to determine if I am, indeed, lucky?
I know there are some scientists (even professional ones) on my flist. Hook me up with something fun and yet scientifically valid?

First you have to define what lucky is for your experiment. Lay down some clear parameters "for the purpose of this study, being lucky is a. b. and c." Then you go from there. ;-)
I think I need some help with that, then, too.
I mean, perhaps I simply have good luck. Or else, maybe I, myself, have occurred by such chance as to be "lucky." Or maybe, just maybe, having me around brings others luck.
I think the problem is that lucky is a vastly subjective idea. What is lucky for you may be unlucky to someone else and vice versa. And then there's the whole chance thing...doing an empirical observation of chance is sort of a paradox, but - that sounds like something right up your alley, doesn't it? ;-)
