Yet Another of Pollack's Problems

Fine-Tuning of the Universe

My third-most-liked (by me) of Pollack's problems is his number 2:
2) "We know that there are physical laws and constants that appear to be fine-tuned to support the existence of the world around us. If any one of them were different by even the slightest amount, our Universe would be completely uninhabitable. How can we explain this?"
My difficulty with number 2 is that I've not yet studied these physical laws and constants, and I thus don't know many of them. Other than death and taxes, what are the other constants? I have no idea. I know only that we got really lucky in the ones we got. Or . . . was this not luck?
