Never ask anyone going out 'Where are you going?'
If someone asks, then the purpose for going out will not be fulfilled.

1)Seven years of bad luck if you break a mirror. Happens to me every time I shave. The mirror cracks when it sees my ugly mug.

Had it been the other way around "Before selling a vehicle drive it over a Pig" considering the second hand car market the pigs would have become an extinct species

Very interesting fact related to this. During 03~sunrise (approx - don't go by digital clock checking 02:59:59), the alertness is very low. First, there is some tiredness and then relaxation of daybreak. In some case, commando raids etc are planned during this time to get some advatage. Thugs used attacked during this time only (as people are in very deep sleep) and disappear. I think, this might have come from those attacks etc.

exactly, the day before yesterday a thug came to our flat and tried to take the music system of a swift at exactly 3 'o' clock in the night. I was awake and heard a sound, so went to the verandah to look into it and saw thuis guy running away. he had also locked the door of the guard from outside . but he could not steal anything. most of these attack at 3 'o' clock.

True - it is the time when we are sleepy the most! (I take a shower before I drive during these times).

Driving at these times also has another advantage - wify is fast asleep in car and not aware of the speed, meaning, no holding back - 'Pedal to the metal'! cheers:

Wel If a lizard falls on you your brain is in trouble! Well simply because in our place they refer this book and according to it lizard falling on different parts of the body gives diferent symbols. Right hand may be lucky whereas left may not etc etc.

Do not cut your nails at night. This is mostly because people used to cut their nails wit a blade and at night without electricity the chances of cutting your hand increases

when a cat crosses your path from left to right, its ok to proceed. But if it crosses from right to left, you are supposed to go three steps backwards and then proceed.
leave that cat alone ! will ya ?

Another one that i heard from my granny is that never buy any metal object on saturday. I was denied a new bicycle on my b'day ( that was a on saturday some years back - just cant forget the damn thing ). They say it brings bad luck.

gimme a break !
