All I say is, "Thanks man, here's your tip, have a good night." I don't see the need to get overly personal.

Not really. Her entire point was that tips are important to wait staff. If she has a day where she gets no tips then she can't count on her paycheck to make up for that. Most servers only have what they take home in tips, so tips are important.

I waited tables for 6 months in college and my biggest check, even though I worked full time was 23 dollars. However I was making about 400 dollars a week in cash. It would have been more if I hadn't been new and gotten all the crappy shifts, but it was enough. Though getting stiffed always stung a little.

I don't think it's stupid to acknowledge that luck well and truly is just an umbrella term for statistics, number theory, and discrete mathematics. That's probably because it's part of my major to understand these concepts and apply them to computers.

Maybe I was a little brash to state the obvious, but it isn't very healthy to ignore that horrible and amazing things are well and truly just probability. It's actually more interesting, in my opinion, to see how things unfold knowing the odds and reasoning for them rather than just being mystified or bewildered by the outcome.

For example, there is very small chance you'll escape a fall from an airplane at cruising altitude alive, but it has happened many times. There is very small chance that you'll survive a bullet to the brain, but it has happened many times.

It's explainable how the people that had those accidents happen to them lived through them, and while very improbable, it isn't something I'd call luck.

Luck is simply the word we use to explain 'chance'. Any real world event has a real world explanation. Nothing is random. Everything can be explained in way or another.

Luck is basically used to refer to things happening outside of your control. It very much exists.

Attacks on my character won't improve your argument, they work against you. I already stated out understandings are different, and you're simply proving that point with this statement. Anything in the world can be calculated and reproduced despite significant odds, that doesn't make it lucky.

I'm not attacking your character I'm just fucking flabbergasted at how dense you're being.

It's lucky BECAUSE the odds turned out the way they did.

Okay, so, the common view on luck is something that is uncommon happening.

Say we go back to the invention of the airplane. It was 'lucky' they achieved flight.

Does that mean that today it is 'lucky' to achieve flight? Of course not. We have a deep understanding of flight mechanics now.

So say surviving a fall from an airplane with no parachute is lucky today. In the future, when we fix this problem and it is very easy for anyone to survive that same fall, is it still lucky if it's much more common? No.

You can apply this to nearly anything in the world. As our understanding increases, 'lucky' things today will die out with 'lucky' things of tomorrow. Because we'll understand the complex forces that gave us low probability.

If you say then that any lucky thing will eventually be the norm, then you can prove that any event k will be replaced by another event k+1 and the previous will be considered normal. Extrapolating this to infinity and nothing is lucky.

We're never going to get anywhere and it's been several hours.

I'll agree to disagree if you do. You have good points, and I believe I do too. Leave it where it is?

So the fact we have several thousand flights a day is just lucky?
User avatar
#95 - meganinja (04/12/2016) [-]
I never brought up flight. You're the one bringing it up and it's a stupid example.

Say somebody is going to kill you unless an RNG comes up as exactly 21382381. It isn't rigged and relies completely on probability, yet it does so. That's a 1/100000000 chance of survival. It doesn't matter if you understand how an RNG works, it's fucking lucky either way.
User avatar
#81 - captchakid (04/12/2016) [-]
Die, probably?

I may seem insensitive, but there is truly no such thing as luck. If you're born into a rich family, you can look at as 'lucky', but in the end it is simply what was going to happen if the parents wanted a child. Luck is a fictional construct. We use it to explain things or excuse things that we don't want to actually believe.

I'm not trying to be an asshole, but you can think of me as one. It won't change the truth of the matter.

Yeah, "luck" doesn't exist just like any concepts don't exist as far as the universe is concerned. But it's stupid to disregard the concept of "luck" because it's a valid and useful one to humans.
If we play a game of dice and you roll 6 50 times in a row, it wasn't any skill or tangible trait that makes you win, it's luck, which isn't worthy of praise.
