Challenge #03621-I333: Time Enough and Luck

The rather... unhappy Pax Humanis members, after letting the officially diagnosed lucker depart in peace with their winnings, which was legally gotten since the person didn't KNOW they were a lucker until now and, therefore, had not been breaking any rules, went to find the casino owner and teach them a lesson about judging others the wrong way.

"Deadly habit," added Jack. "Ruins a lot of lives." Coming out of a member of Pax Humanis, that statement was gospel.

Yoshioka ran. It was hir lucky day. Possibly even more so.
