Are there any superstitions you believe in?


Are there any superstitions that you don't really believe in, but you act as if you do (like knocking on wood for luck)?

I have a tendancy to knock on wood after I say something, I always have.

I think that one is just ingrained in me also. Just as a habit.

Funny you should mention the knocking on wood thing... that's one that I do, even though I don't believe in any of it.

If you spill salt, you take a pinch of the spilled salt and toss it over your shoulder.

Knocking on wood, walking around a ladder instead of under it.

I always knock on wood when I say something that I hope won't happen!

I think the knocking on wood thing is about the only one I do go ahead and do-just in case lol.

I have been known to knock on wood, but I don't really *believe* in it!

I don't believe in superstitions. As a matter of fact, it drives me insane when people do. I am a very logical and literal person and "bad things happening in 3's" or "jinxes" just don't make sense to me.

However, I do believe that I have an uncanny ability to get in line RIGHT before the crowd arrives. Anywhere. Walmart, Olive Garden, a concert. Doesn't matter. I never have to wait. And when I look behind me, there is a huge line.

Also, I can ask a question out loud like "what is a delegate?" and 9 times out of 10 either the TV or the radio will answer me. Even if it's "what did Heath Ledger star in?" or "how far is it to the moon?", I will hear my answer.

Funny question.
