Daily Prompt: Cause, Meet Effect

Todays daily prompt is called Cause, Meet Effect and it asks;

You can singlehandedly create a causal relation between two things that are currently unconnected — a word and an emotion, a song and an extreme weather event, wearing a certain color and winning the lottery. What cause would you link to what effect, and why?

Hmm interesting prompt.

However if wearing a certain colour meant you win the lottery surely everyone would do it and thus the money you get from winning the lottery would be so small that it wouldn’t even be worth buying a ticket there would be that many winners.

That’s a bit like printing so much money that everyone becomes a millionaire. You’d have to readjust and revalue everything to the point when it comes a million money just for a loaf of bread. Think the great depression or places like Zimbabwe today.

I’m not sure it’s a good idea to go around changing any of these cause and effect relationships. Although maybe if they only work for me.

I could make myself like a world class hypnotist with this ability. I say a certain phrase and it causes people to react in a certain way. Of course I would then need to be careful when I have a conversation with someone not to accidentally use my new power. Maybe I should add in the classic click of the fingers for it to take effect?

I don’t think it’s a good idea to give me this decision/power to me. Something bad and/or silly will happen.
