Discussion Thread: Superstitions

Since today is a Friday the 13th with a full moon, which won't happen again for a very long time, it seems appropriate to have a thread about superstitions!

I'm not superstitious at all: I walk under ladders, spill salt, coo at black cats crossing my path, step on cracks, go through life with no lucky numbers, objects, or clothes.

I do say "touch wood" a lot, but it's not really because I believe something bad will happen if I don't. It's more a rhetorical shorthand for communicating that I hope nothing bad happens, or I'm aware of my good fortune, or whatever.

So I can't really think of any superstitions I have. Boring!
