I don't know about other people, but it's how I got my nickname at work. I'd get added at the end of a project when they needed to pull in a few additional testers, and I'd almost always find some really bizarre bug that needed to be fixed. Inevitably, I'd start with a project that looked "done" and within a week, I would find at least one show stopper and a dozen other quirky bugs that should be fixed.
Like a tornado going through a mobile home park, I'd make a big mess, but nobody would give a S, well except for the show stopper, which would get the question "Why didn't you find that sooner?"
Actually I'm similar. I think this is what makes a career tester, though. I mean it's not, really, luck so much as it is a talent. I mean just like some people play baseball really well or some people are artists, we break stuff. Personally, I'd rather break stuff.

9 out of 10 people I prove wrong agree that I'm right. The other person is my wife.
