If it does, I'm one hell of an unlucky person.
Would this make it hereditary? My father has welcomed me into his world of gambling over the weekend. Specifically, poker.
Last night, we traveled to Talking Stick, a casino/resort of sorts located in Scottsdale, Arizona. He won some money, lost some money, but ended last night in "the green".
He thinks he is just a straight boss when it comes to both Hold Em' and Omaha High/Low, claiming that he would make upwards of $50k a year from poker alone if he were just MORE LUCKY.
Luck, to me, is intangible. It's happenstance. Probability. IMO, no one person could consistently remain luckier than another. It would be lucky to flip a coin and land heads ten times in a row, but I guarantee you it will happen eventually if you flip that coin long enough.
My father, on the other hand, cites a time when my grandfather was in Ohio stadium with a friend. They announced that someone's vehicle was on fire in the parking lot (for some reason) and my grandpa's friend turned to him and said: "You know that's my car".
So, he's unluckier than the tens of thousands of others in attendance? How many other people turned to someone and said THAT'S MY CAR ARRRRRGGG WHERE'S A POOP COOLER?!?!
To me man, it's just a hunch. Maybe his car was susceptible to explosion given it's condition. For the record, it was in fact his car that was on fire.
Nonetheless, what say you on luck?
