Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

Were you born lucky?Page 1 of 1    
50% of the world's population lives on less than $2/day,
and half of them, on half of that, with no access to clean water.

None of us has any choice in where we're born, or to whom.
So it's the simple 'toss of a coin', a 50/50 chance.
Anyone born here, was born lucky.

Were you born lucky?

Most of us live pretty average lives, and the perception of lucky/unlucky is largely due to which things that happen to you you notice and ascribe to luck.

So far (touch wood) I haven't had anything seriously unlucky happen to me and I've had a few lucky breaks, so I'd say I'm pretty lucky, but most of what has directed my life has been choices, not luck.
