Finding a four-leaf clover is supposed to be all about good luck, but who says you can't boost your odds? The super-nerds at Scientific American are here to tell you exactly how to find a four-leafer using science, rather than superstition.

It's still a game of probability, but knowing how much area you'll need to search, and how to gear your eyes and brain for fast scanning, will definitely improve your luck. And if that doesn't work, you can always genetically modify your own four-leaf clover—SciAm even tells you which gene you'll need! Now get out to your clover field and get lucky! [Scientific American]
