$60,000 Good Luck Charm

People do lots of things to bring themselves luck. Carry a 4-leaf clover, keep a horseshoe hanging somewhere, or buy a $60,000 fish. That's how much Feng Shui followers in India are willing to pay to own one of the rare Arowana fish. The fish is thought to bring good luck and balance to those who own it. It can grow up to three feet long and have a life expectancy of 40 to 50 years. The ones with pinkish gold scales cost $60,00. If you've got an extra $60K to shell out on a fish, aren't you already lucky?
