“You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.” – Cormac McCarthy, No Country for Old Men.
How do you define luck?
Depending on who you are, your definition will likely be made up from your own emotional influences throughout life. You might consider yourself to have good luck, or you might consider yourself to be the most unlucky person on the planet.

According to a new infographic from Slots.co.uk and hosted on Content Staging, there are 7,089,044,501 people alive on this planet, and 1,500,000,000 speak the English language.
