i dont know . but these sayings had to come from somewhere like maybe have some truth to them or round about truth. but bad luck yes i do believe in, like the number 13 and walking under ladders opening umbrellas inside things like that. dont know where things like that came from tho. i just hope i have good luck all the time.

sometimes it scares the hell out of me. i remember breaking a mirror when i was i kid. just as bad things come almost all at the same time in my life, i couldn't help but wonder if its related to breaking a mirror or something. my relatives has so many beliefs like these, like its bad if set your wedding date same as the birthday of any of your offspring because it will make them sickly. ever heard of it? can you tell me more about walking under ladders? you see... my family's room entrance is right under a ladder. is it bad?

i don't really believe on this kind of thing actually. Bad or good luck is depend on how you will live with your life i guess. If you always think positive then you will find that you feel your life is secure. For me this kind of thing is just like what we called feng shui, a concept for us to live our life healthily.

that's how i thought also. i read something about feng shui before, i realized all are mere practical ideas on how to have a healthy life. i guess these stuffs seems very real if you truly believe these things exist. if you don't i think it won't do any harm at all.

Superstition is a whole lot of nonsense. They defy logic. No thinking person could ever believe that the number 13, or a black cat, or breaking mirrors, or ... brings bad luck. The only superstition that has any degree of logic attached to it is walking under a ladder. If someone on the ladder is painting, it would be possible to get paint-spattered, or if he is washing windows, to get water-sprayed, or if he is laying bricks or tiles, to have one dropped on you, etc. The idea that walking under a ladder because this breaks the trinity (which is where the superstition arose) is ludicrous! Forget about superstitions. They are ridiculous and powerless.
