Overall I thought the article was very interesting. I never knew the reason the superstition about 13 or walking under a ladder were created. But more within the article; I didn't think the cat experiment held too much weight, it didn't really seem to do too much to the idea. I liked the newspaper experiment, but feel that the "lucky" people may have just been more observant than the "unlucky" people, or it could be that the luck really did make a difference in if they would spot the ad. I think it's cool that he came up with exercises that are intended to help enhance luck in people, and that it seemed to work for Patricia. I don't think I'm overly lucky, or overly unlucky, but it makes me want to find out what these exercises are to try them, seeing if it will enhance my luck.
