Scientific proof that luck exists?

A researcher at the University of Hertfordshire (though it doesn't say which faculty he's attached to) claims that luck is a real phenomenon; there are "lucky" and "unlucky" people, and the former differ from the latter by having a more positive outlook on life. As such, Richard Wiseman has been running a "luck school" to teach people how to be more lucky, and claims an 80% success rate.

Of course, if that's too simple for you, you could always send money to "Bob" and request him to tilt the Luck Plane favourably for you.

Since I joined the Church of the Subgenius, and probably before as well, I have always been able to stroll to my nearest tramstop, wait less than two minutes, and SHAZZAM, a tram! Except for the times when it hasn't happened. PRABOB!
