What is the weirdest/funniest/ craziest old wives tale or superstition you have heard?

Some I've heard
If you play with matches you will pee in the bed.
If you tell a lie you will get a lie bump on your tongue.
You must get out of bed on the same side that you get in or you will have bad luck all day.
If your foot itches it means you will step on new ground.

  • If your nose itches, someones talking about you.

    If your pregnant belly is high it will be one sex, if its low it will be the other.

    If your pregnancy is completely different it will be different sex. (Did not work for me!)

    If it rains on your wedding day you'll be rich! (It snowed on mine in April, so what does that make me?!?!)

    hmm i know there are tons more!!

  • My MIL told me if a pregnant woman didn't drink a glass of Orange juice a day the baby will come out retarded. Said that's been said for years and been proven.... yeah... I didn't drink the crap and my children are really smart.

  • That if you raise your arms above your head while pregnant, your baby's cord will wrap around its neck and you'll have a miscarriage. I can't believe how many women still believe this.
    Also, if you masturbate (guys), you'll get hair on your palms and go blind. Or that circumcising will stop masturbation. Hahahahaha, yeah right.

  • If you drop a comb, kiss it or you'll go bald.
    If you drop a piece of silverware, kiss it or you'll go hungry.
    If your left palm itches, you'll lose money.
    If your right palm itches, you'll find money.
    You can never give a wallet or purse empty or you curse the person to be poor.
    Never give a knive as a gift or you'll sever the friendship.

  • if you tickle your babys feet, they will stutter when they learn to talk.
    if your palm itches it means your going to come into some money.
    ears ringing means someones talking about you.
