Superstitions- do you or have you believed in any of these?
If you blow out all the candles on your birthday cake with the first puff you will get your wish
If a candle lighted as part of a ceremony blows out, it is a sign that evil spirits are nearby
It is bad luck to light three cigarettes with the same match.
It's good luck to find a four-leaf clover.
It's bad luck to pick up a coin if it's tails side up. Good luck comes if it's heads up.
Don't step on a crack on a sidewalk or walkway
Crows =One's bad, Two's luck, Three's health, Four's wealth, Five's sickness, Six is death
If the palm of your right hand itches it means you will soon be getting money.
It is bad luck to walk under a ladder.
To break a mirror means 7 years bad luck.
It's good luck when you see a falling star. Make a wish on it and it will come true
If a black cat walks towards you, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it
Fuscia closing polls is a sign of bad luck
Salting your beer will make you smarter

Fuscia closed a poll back in the summer of 05, and right after that, I got a bad case of the shingles. Me fears she may be a witch.

Dave, I know what you're saying. Fuscia closed another poll, at the beginning of '06, and I broke out in hives, multiple times. Then, she started this one, and I broke out again. I think that she's a witch!!!!

I would scream out loudly to "BURN HER! BURN THE WITCH!", but she gave me the shingles and the drop palsy and nervous tremor and a leaky spleen, so I'm scared of her poll closing powers. If she closed this one, it might go ahead and kill my sorry ***.

Actually the 3 cigarettes with the same match was a fact. Back in world war 1 the British soldiers in the trenches would share matches because there were not a lot going around. Anyway the first cigarette lit would attract German snipers, the second one lit would let the sniper take aim and the third won lit never got to enjoy his cigarette.

Anyway I believe in the match one and the falling star.

I'm a fairly superstitious person. I chose all but lighting three cigarettes with one match, a broken mirror meaning seven years of bad luck, and the last two. But some superstitions are just common sense, like not walking underneath a ladder and that finding a penny is good luck. One day last year I found six pennies face up and one face down, so my friend kicked the penny that was down until it hit the wall and flipped over, and then I had a lucky amount of lucky pennies

Another common sense one is the cat one on the list. If a cat's walking toward you then of course it's good because you get to pet it If it's leaving, then it usually doesn't want to be petted, so that's not good.

I was walking down the street downtown one day, and there was a ladder, with nobody on it, just sitting on the sidewalk.

I was in the process of walking around it, when I realized "f all that, I don't believe in this s***"

So then I purposely walked underneath it.

Superstitions are stupid.

Well, they say that SH*T HAPPENS!!! Guess he found out that he shouldn't have walked under that ladder.

I checked the 4-leaf clover one, b/c you rarely find it. and the shooting star one - just b/c its from my childhood. Everything else is just a myth.
The evil spirit one sounds creepy. but what if you're just standing under a VENT?
what if a black cat walks to the side of you?
what if your right hand itches b/c you have a sweating problem or a rash?
i think it's good luck to find ANY coin facing any way b/c you're that much richer!
what if you live in a bad neighborhood and all the sidewalks are cracked? I'd say you've had enough bad luck already!
if 6 crows is death, what's 20? My college campus looked like a scene out of the Birds... what is that? bloody murder?

interesting....
if you're salting your beer, that's not smart to begin with, that's just icky! does anyone do that? what's it taste like?

ME closing polls is not the source of bad luck. It is a well known fact that Whidden salts his beer. Well he has been doing it in secret all these years. I found out that the night my car was hit, Whidden salted a beer. The night I had hives all over my body? Whidden salted another beer.

I even heard that on 9/11 Whidden salted 4 beers! Yep 4 planes= 4 beers I blame the salt company.
