Ah you know it and I do check them periodically to make sure they are in the right position. I have thrown more salt over my shoulder than most people consume in a lifetime... Stuff like that, when I can...

When a bird flies into the house, someone is going to die, when someone places shoes on the table, someone is going to die.

When birds fly left to right , someone is home, when right to left, house is empty.

Drop a knife and someone will come to call, drop a fork and female sweetheart will show up or call.

When flies come in by the droves, it is either going to rain or my Ex is coming over...

Stuff like that...

Yeah, I am superstitious...

Priceless !!

Great reply, Antar ! As for dropping a fork on the floor, my grandmother would flip everytime it happened as it meant that guests would be arriving in the next few days and she was already (always) cooking left, right and center !!!

Brilliant thread!! Thank you, it has been a very interesting read!

I was about to say that I don't think I am very suspicious, but then I remembered that when I see a lone magpie I salute him/her. No idea where that came from but I have been doing it as long as I remember!

I spend half of the time walking my dog saluting!

I do not like to give samples of urine, blood, hair...nothing like that. I had a few teeth pulled but they went home with me,, as did a cyst.

Weird to some but maybe withcraft belifs about the possession of such things is a memory of the future, or of an advanced past.

I saw a science show and they were taking Christopher Columbus' s bones from their chest, and digging up his son to get at his dna. Then they ground the bones....

Why are men in labs with labcoats doing these things ' ok' ?

All i saw was an old witch cackling...."I' ll grind yer bones..."

They could not get the dna needed...spell did not work...took them to a more advanced lab...to a stonger witch...still no dna...

So what did the strong witch do? Took some of ol Christopher' s bones and stored em on a shelf.

If I ever saw someone harming a cat, or any living being, I would smash their face into the ground as hard as I can and say "how does it feel?! Huh?! ANSWER MEEEEE!!!!!!" Cause I'm a psycho like that XD

Good call
So how do you plan to protect your DNA in the afterlife? Or will you not care anymore then?

Cremation doesn't work, as far as I know, shards of bone are still intact. I was mortified when I decided to take a look into the mini urn given to me after my mother had passed.

I used to want my remains shipped out into space. But now I dunno... An alien with advanced technology is essentially just a superwitch in disguise when you really think about it...

I guess my new plan will have to involve my next of kin being the key member in a quest to deliver my remains into the fires of mordor...

Well to be honest I can use all the luck I can get so it never hurts to help it out a bit... I know I am nuts too but loveable just the same.

Oh right on Grandma! I bet she was very "intuitive". When one trusts that they are never let down. Good story, thanks I do love the older generation and their down to earth wisdom. She sounds like a real treasure. bet her old cook books have all kinds of hand written gems.

Don't worry about it ! If being superstitious meant being nuts, half the population (or more) would be in asylums! I think that all of us are a bit superstitious about something or another but most won't necessarily admit it...

Okay, being french, I had to look up "magpie" as it sounded like something I would not describe on this forum...


Cool superstition !!


Of all birds it is probably the magpie that is most associated with superstitions. However, most superstitions regarding magpies are based around just one bird. Throughout Britain it is thought to be unlucky to see a lone magpie and there are a number of beliefs about what you should do to prevent bad luck.

In most parts of the UK people will salute a single magpie and say “Good morning Mr Magpie. How is your lady wife today?” By acknowledging the magpie in this way you are showing him proper respect in the hope that he will not pass bad fortune on to you. By referring to the magpie's wife you are also implying that there are two magpies, which bring joy rather than sorrow according to the popular rhyme.

Personally, I think my grandmother was a Saint! She held many superstitions which doesn't change the fact that she was one of the most altruistic person that I've ever known. She lived for others. Everyone loved her dearly. Thirty years after her passing, she is still missed.

Thank-you for that link.

I was always curious of one of my aunts when she did the exact same thing upon seeing a lone magpie. She always said it was for good luck and that it would be good for me to remember it and do it, too, but never elaborated on it. Now I know why she did it. ^_^

hmmm.
My grandma always said if you find a penny with the tail up to put it in your shoe with the head up to change the luck to good luck. I've always done that just to be sure....

And I've also always heard that putting shoes on a table was bad luck. I never thought much of it until the day my husband died unexpectedly. For whatever reason he had put the new shoes I bought him on the dining room table the day before he died. Freaked me out.

Just remembered another one from childhood in the South. Always crossed ourselves when passing a graveyard...or, hearing an ambulance siren.
