Very Happy Do the Chinese really consider 8 to be a lucky number?

I was sent the email below only a few hours ago and am wondering whether or not to act upon it. I could certainly use some good luck! Let me know in your replies what you think I should do. Thanks guys!

Hi, my name is Amanda and I am a numerologist. I would like to share this amazing story of good luck with you. As you probably already know, to the Chinese 8 is the luckiest of numbers. It was no coincidence that the Beijing Olympic Games officially opened on the 8th day of the 8th month in the 8th year of the new millennium.

In my work as a numerologist I have been searching for many months since that date earlier this year for a powerful good luck “mantra” to focus and harness the “Chi” of the universe upon the person who repeats it. I therefore scoured the internet for the name and title of an individual who had focussed “Chi” through their significant achievement, and had come to prominence, on the luckiest day of the year the 8th of August 2008.

I found a list of many hundreds of individuals all over the world who achieved great things on this date. To narrow my search further I then had to find a name and title that contained exactly 8 syllables which then had to able to be reduced numerologically to the luckiest of numbers the number 8.

After all the research of those months I discovered only one name and title containing that perfect symmetry I sought. That name and title was Professor Cecil Thistlethwaite. His significant achievement was the publishing of a children’s picture e-book on the 8th of August, 2008 as the web link below will show you http://www.eloquentbooks.com/TheAdventuresOfHiramBBat.html

To use the mantra and focus the “Chi” in your own life you must repeat the name Professor Cecil Thistlethwaite out aloud 8 times in a row and then share this email, in its entirety with 8 of your friends that you wish to also experience good luck! You must complete the sharing within 8 days of receiving this email for the circle of good luck “Chi” to remain unbroken and have its maximum effect.

Some of the good luck stories I have had reported back so far within 8 days of following these directions have been;
A third division win in the lottery
A woman who found her missing wedding ring 3 years after losing it
A man whose wife had died many years earlier was contacted “out of the blue” by his old high school sweetheart
A couple who thought they had missed out on their dream home were contacted by the real estate agents saying that the sale with the other clients had fallen through and were they still interested
An old lady who was resigned to the fact that her pet dog was forever lost said he wandered back into her yard thin but otherwise unharmed

I wish you the reader of this email all the luck in the world as you are a person who is kind in spirit and richly deserve it!

P.S. as a thank you to Professor Cecil Thistlethwaite, (who I am sure doesn’t even know I exist, much less that I researched his name) I purchased an online copy of his book. My nieces and nephews loved it and you know the funny thing about karma is that it is often paid back with interest to the one who so kindly paid it forward!

P.P.S. feel free to add (briefly) your own stories of good luck to those examples above, but only if they happen within 8 days of your following the instructions.

It's a chain letter. Good luck, bad luck. . . It doesn't matter, and is probably made up, as chain letters generally are.

I see no harm in doing what the e-mail suggests, but it seems a little phony to me.

I feel very uncomfortable when people say that just because they were born into a specific number/date they will go on to achieve great things in Life.It tells me of there insecurity that they arent special enough.Arent we all special?

Yeah I agree that trusting on birthdates, sunsigns, astrology/divination alone is a waste of time and even hazardous to a person who gets overconfident and starts to rely on luck. My advice is: Never trust luck. You need to be able to personally take care of any possible changes in the universe that have something to do with you. This overconfidence could get one killed.

The number 8 is definately a lucky number, it is up there with 1 and 6 for all students of Feng Shui. As for that letter, if it is a chain mail then do throw it away and forget the hell about it.

To the chinese,the number 8 is considered as the lucky number as the pronunciation of 8 in a dialect of mandarin - cantonese is pronounced as "fa" which means luck in mandarin.But considering this as a chain letter,you can just ignore it since its ultimate goal is to sell the book.

I can confirm what has been mentioned about the number 8 and its significance to Chinese numerology and culture as most of my research and work in my degree has been focused on East Asian History and culture... but the email screams scam to me honestly.

There is an old saying, "We must make our own luck". Or as Obi Wan Kenobi might say, "There is no such think as luck." Just opportunties for potential gain and benefit where proper action is required. Random bucket loads of money won't fall from the sky or magically manifest upon a silver platter for you. But if you can percieve a real opportunity from a false promise, then it might be worth your while to pursue it.

If it sounds too good to be true, it often is.
