<i>Optional: As mentioned in lecture on 02.06.07, we would like you to consider how, as a biological engineer you might test the superstition "Spit on a bat before using it for the 1st time to make it lucky." </i>fill in your answer here

-
The first thing I would do would be to define "lucky."  Does "lucky" mean that I hit x number of home runs or does it mean that I never strike out?  Once I have this criteria, I can sort some sample of bats based on luckiness.  Moreover, we know that if you spit on some random object it does not become lucky; luckiness from spit is specific to bats.  Thus, the lucky component must be some mix of an element of the bat and an element of saliva.  Thus I could test the composition of the lucky bats and unlucky bats and see the difference.  Once I pinpoint the components necessary to mix together to make a lucky bat, I can check if they are inherent in saliva.  If they are, I have proved that saliva makes bats lucky.  If not, then I have negated that hypothesis.
