The number is 1000. And didn't romans think hens could tell the future? They fed them cake and if the hens ate it, all was well. If, however, they refused, the romans got all scared. Like Arty and his number gods! :lol:

In viking times, you put a dead loved one's ashes in a little bottle. If another loved one died, then you put the bottles next to eachother, and drilled a hole in each one so that they could have a chat.

Wow. That is awesome!
In the 14th century, during the Black Death, quack doctors would sell powdered emeralds and pearls to cure it. Obviously it didn't work.

The oldest superstition I know of is that stone-age man believed that chickenpox could be cured by crawling through a stone with a hole in it. Well, I guess stones were the only things around back then.....

What's a really new superstition, excluding one you just made up :lol:

Hm. It's unlucky not to send chain emails to everyone you know? That can't be that ancient, they didn't have emails at one point! :shock:

It's apparently unlucky to toss a new hat, to wear new clothes and not buy them, to put shoes on table and to put a hat on a bed(?)

I will think up some more clothes related superstitions soon :) :) :) :) :tinfoilhat:

One of the superstions I have is the walking under the ladder one - I have done it as a kid and I think bad luck has stuck with me in certain occasions. :?

^ I think it's unlucky to walk under a ladder because the ladder might fall on you.
Apparently you can make a wish on a green m+m. (did I already post that?)

Yep. Why a green M+M? Why not a red or a blue or a.....
Sorry. :roll:

I learned a Bulgarian superstition today: apparently if it rains when you're on the way to do something (like a test) then you're going to do well.

My mum also follows this superstition where if you give someone a purse as a present you have to put a con in it, otherwise if you leave it empty it is destined to stay empty and the person you're giving it too will never have any money.

I admit I always am careful not to spill salt, and if I do I tos a bit over my shoulder. Mostly becuase it's kinda fun.
