Jinxing Myself

Victims of crime never deserve their fates. That said, I know a person who lives in constant fear. She's visibly terrified of being assaulted or robbed; she trembles as she walks down the street. Sure enough, bad stuff regularly happens to her. I'm the opposite. I put myself in ostensibly dangerous situations but I know that I'll be fine. Am I oblivious, or does confidence actually repel evil?

    Bad guys basically look for a good risk/profit ratio. People who are oblivious to their surroundings and look scared are easier pickings.

    Randomness rules the world but awareness of the risks involve help reduce the dangers we face. Chin up and keep your confidence strong

    It's the same principal as dogs supposedly being able to smell or sense fear, which makes them prone to bite one person and not another. Unfortunatly humans are a lot less predictable and meaner than dogs. Or else you are just really lucky, or she is really unlucky.

    Used to hear this little joke in New York.

    Q.: What's a Democrat?

    A.: A Republican who hasn't been mugged yet.

    Maybe you'll act like your friend once your luck finally runs out.
