Luck or Fate?

Have you ever had your future foretold by a Fortune-telling Machine? There was once everything from table top Swami fortune telling napkin dispensers at the local drug store to mechanical exotic gypsy fortune telling machines at carnivals and fairs.

Do you believe something happened to you because it was luck, good or bad, or because it was fate?   If you lost your job was it because you walked under a ladder, or because you were destined to get a better job?

What does your future hold?
