Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Umbrella... it's irresistable... popping open something that has no business being open indoors.

In my experience there's no such thing as luck.

All of the above, except for sleeping with best friend's spouse. Also, I have crossed paths with a black cat while under a ladder.

I've done all of these except "slept with best friend’s spouse" and I don't really mean that to be an editorial comment on my friend's taste in men, but it sort of is.

Totaled a minivan, and broke both rearview mirrors.

Actually, I don't believe in luck.

I cross paths with a black cat on a daily basis. He's my cat, Dave.

Ditto to what everyone else said - all of the above EXCEPT sleeping with a best friend's husband.

I believe luck is something you make - through perseverance, hard work and help from the good Lord!

Add me to the "doesn't believe in luck/make my own luck" crowd. And I tempt fate too, by living with a black cat who I cross paths with daily. Not because it's bad luck, rather because she has this nasty habit of trying to surprise trip me with her mad ninja skills every time I walk down the hallway.

I own a black cat too! She crosses my path roughly 17,000 times per day, and sleeps on my head. Now that I think about it, this explains a lot.

Well, they weren't married then and they were on a break ... Unluckiest thing I ever did was enlist in the Air Force.

More than 20% of wooters have slept with their besties spouse. You all have much more of a (how to say this) morally flexibility than I would have thought. I'm for sure going to the next Wine.Woot meetup.

Since I don't believe in luck, I will have to say that the STUPIDEST thing I ever did was marry my first wife. She was beautiful (I mean really awesome) and cool and was very interested in the bedroom. We were arguing for 10 years, then she left. It took me 10 more years to recover.
I would sure like to have that time back. What a waste.
But she was sure good-looking. The problem with marrying up is, if the spouse gets wise to it, you end up with a broken heart.

I'd have to go with "moving in with high school sweetheart". Yep, that would have to be mine. Unluckiest...and downright stupidest.

I'm a bit dismayed that 21% have slept with their best friend's spouse...

So has anyone slept with their best friend's black cat under a ladder- and rolled over in the act breaking a mirror?

Bought refurbished electronics. No, not from woot, but in general, refurbished electronics is like a hammer glued back together with crazy glue. It's just waiting to break.

My best friend is my spouse, so that's a no-brainer (luckiest thing I ever did was marry her). I really haven't had any bad luck in my life to give me cause to point at anything as the unluckiest.

I accidentally spoke the name of an elder god three times in a row - I forgot to censor myself on the last repetition.

Brought me bad luck for the rest of the day - I'd say I got off easy.

I walked under a black cat once with an open umbrella on Friday the 13th and right into a mirror that broke on the 13th floor of a building. Boy, what a day that was!!!
