Do you believe in "lucky" numbers ?

Do you believe in certain numbers that bring luck like 3 or 7, or are unlucky like 13... Why is there almost never a row 13 on a plane, or a racecar with that number ? Why do Chinese think 8 is full of luck ? Why do some people always play the same numbers in lottery ? Do you believe in it, or do you just think it's crap ? Do you have lucky/unlucky numbers yourself ? I want to know all about it !

I totally don’t believe in any lucky numbers so there is no lucky numbers in my dictionary. I did see some people bet on certain particular numbers which they believed to be their lucky numbers repeatedly on the roulette layout, but the numbers never came out at all.

I guess believing in lucky or unlucky numbers is a superstitious belief. But I myself do believe in lucky numbers and of the Chinese belief in feng shui and lucky numbers. I'm not absolutely sure but I guess the Chinese believe that the number 8 is lucky because it consists of two circles when written. And circles have no end; meaning, if we apply it to wealth or money matters, our wealth is like a circle or has no end. Personally, my favorite number is 8 or numbers with 8. I could still recall that at one time about 4 or 5 years ago, my husband asked me about numbers to serve as bet in a local game of chance. I told him to bet for the numbers 8 and 28. I never was a better. He did not do as I said because his reason was, that these 2 numbers were already drawn in the previous chance game. So, he bet for 2 numbers other than what I told him. To our dismay, the winning combination came out later that day and somehow, 8 & 28 won. Call it luck or chance?!
