luck or control

Alan Turner

The old New Zealand halfpenny features a Hei-tiki, a Maori talisman associated with ancestors, fertility and more recently luck, although I suspect this latter interpretation to be an excuse to sell trinkets to tourists.

Luck is evidence that the long tail of a distribution can touch anyone of us.
Can I control luck by dragging a talisman with me?
My answer is an emphatic no.
I can take some control of my life, tweak events to move the favourable outcomes toward the centre of the distribution and move the less favourable outcomes toward the long tail.

1 - something intended to bring luck
