    Perfection no, only God is perfection and we are not in the same league. On the other hand I have found that prayer not luck has kept me from harm in some really bad bad situations in my life. Picking between prayer and being lucky I would chose prayer every time, and you?

    Since God is a myth and prayer is really just to make the supplicant feel more at peace, I would have to choose luck or chance. Louis Pasteur said "chance favors the prepared mind". So that about sums it up. As to the real meaning of today and the end of the long count of the Mayan calendar check this link http://www.latimes.com/travel/deals/...,6928928.story. I've been to both Chichen Itza and Uxmal for the light show. They are as close to spiritual as I get. They are right up there with the Eastern Sierra as spiritual places. PARTY ON!!!!

    Your luck is generally better in a gun fight when you have a gun.

    Better have a quick thumb too, because from what I'm reading they're going after all semi auto's since they're convinced they're all assault weapons. And bad guys don't have them, only good guys do...

    This stands true for life in an urban environment or in nature. Be prepared, sometimes, many times preparation is not enough but in many circumstances being prepared whether it be to deal with a bear, mountain lion or other in nature or to deal with a maniac bent on killing you, being prepared gives you just that chance at survival, small or large.

    Be prepared to pedal your deer to get it processed if you don't have a car.
