    Nor do I. I don't want to get into splitting pubic hairs over semantics, so I will offer my non-official definitions of the difference between LUCK and CHANCE, regardless of what Webster's Dictionary says:

    IMO, LUCK occurs when you put NO FORETHOUGHT into something and out of nowhere a windfall occurs.

    If you DECIDE to do something foolish, and it turns out well, then you took a CHANCE, and came out on top.

    One requires active participation, the other does not, that's just the way I've always differentiated the two, despite their similarities.

    Yes, you have clearly articulated what I was unable to. So this being said, has this happened to anyone?

    I can't help thinking of, "The Praise of Folly", written by Erasmus six hundred years ago.
