4 January 18: Lucky number, anyone?

Good morning, my colourful friends.

Do you have a lucky number? I’ve always loved the quirky soft yet hard shape of the number three but wouldn’t consider it ‘lucky’ (I also think we are inclined to see meaning and connection in things because we want and need to as human beings, even if it’s not really there. It’s about safety in a random world). Apparently, a universal lucky number favourite is seven, and in 2017 gambling boffins discovered that the ‘unluckiest’ number (that is, the number least likely to help you in the lottery because it’s rarely drawn) is 18. Are there any numbers you’re drawn to – or, for that matter, any that you avoid?
