    "sometimes a rainbow, baby, is better than a pile of gold"

    song lyrics by the band Poison.

    Would you rather be lucky or rich?

    I personally would want to be lucky cos im sick of being unlucky. Money is not too much of a matter for me, ive been poor before. but at least now i am stable (but i live at home so at least i always have food and shelter) but times have been hard...luck all the way for me!

    Luck, definitly. Its better to be in the right place at the right time so opportunities exist. Who knows, luck may lead to money.

    See i did think about it for a long time. Here are a few simple things i thought about.

    Luck leads to money but if your rich you have it.

    Luck means you find a real attractive great partner, wealth means that these people could come looking for you, and ONE of them may be right

    Luck means you get into university, money means you get into university

    the list could go on but i cant think straight at the moment, im multi-tasking and failing miserably

    She's not mean, Chopnik!! She's been VERY busy with work lately and probably only has TIME for one liners this week. She's your loving MOM, sweetie! Give her a break... :wink:

    Besides, this topic just BEGS for one liners!

    Like:

    If it wasn't for BAD luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all.

    or

    If you have luck, you don't NEED wealth. Conversely, if you have wealth, you don't need LUCK!

    But I don't buy into either of these. If someone is passing out wealth and luck, I'll take either one -- OR a little of both would be nice... :wink:

    Forgive me son!!!!!!!

    I would rather have luck. You can be wealthy, but with bad luck, you could lose it all, you could get sick, or hit by a truck.

    So definitely luck.

    And if I was lucky, I'd be wealthy.

    Also, posts in the general forum have died off recently. :frown: I'm now being forced to post in the "real" forums where I have to actually think.

    Luck does not exist. You make your own luck.
    Hence I would rather be rich.
