Psychotic Good
A jinx, in popular superstition and folklore, is:

* A type of curse placed on a person that makes them prey to many minor misfortunes and other forms of bad luck;
* A person afflicted with a similar curse, who, while not directly subject to a series of misfortunes, seems to attract them to anyone in his vicinity.
* An object that brings bad luck.
* A common slang term used when two people say the same thing at the same time, said as a game among children.

The superstition can also be referenced when talking about a future event with too much confidence. A statement such as "We're sure to win the contest!" can be seen as a jinx because it tempts fate, thereby bringing bad luck. The event itself is referred to as "jinxed". The most dramatic historical example of this type of jinxing is the RMS Titanic which was said to be unsinkable, then sunk on its maiden voyage.

The etymology of the word is obscure.

* It may come from Latin iynx, that is, the wryneck bird, which has occasionally been used in magic and divination and is remarkable for its ability to twist its head almost 180 degrees while hissing like a snake.

Потому что в последнее время доминирует ArchWarlock. И я сейчас гораздо больше ощущаю себя Chaotic, нежели Good.
