My Dad bought me a gold necklace for my 21st Birthday, in the Far East, it was Gold with a Jade Sword. It was meant to represent being lucky in love and life (Jade being lucky and the sword.....you get the idea). I haven't removed it for 31 years and it has brought me luck and.....well lots of kids and an amazing wife. Yesterday I broke it. Not just the chain which snapped but the Jade sword broke in half as well. Now I am superstitious anyway but in the 12 hours since (8 spent asleep) I have dropped a glass of milk on the newly cleaned carpets, scratched my new cars' door on the stupid bloody tree I hate in the front garden, overslept and late for work on the one day my boss calls me on the dot of 8:45 and dropped my electric toothbrush down the toilet........and it hadn't been flushed yet.

In my other job I find every single person is very superstitious. You can't EVER say the Q word (I can;t even bring myself to say it here) like "Wow the radio is Q tonight, theres not much going on".... and Tony ends up alone confronting someone with a knife.... Many use the same car, or have lucky charms or a lucky item of kit etc. 

So what about you? Are you superstitious? Is there anything in particular you can't say or do that is unlucky or freaks you out or do you think it's all hogwash!

Why does that pic seem to need a caption along the lines of "The couple celebrated 25yrs together." ?

It's unlucky to be superstitious, innit!

Is that the problem?🙂

It's unlucky to be superstitious, innit! :lol:

You just need to stop worrying about everything else and short your shit out!  (literallyu, from your toothbrush bristles lol)

Chop that friggin' tree down and lose the hate from your life.

Stop drinking the rum/wine/whisky and you'll not have to worry about over sleeping.

Stop being frightened to say the word queer - it's OK in this day and age but to be honest it is an out of date expression and you would get less agro from the guy with the knife if you simply regarded him as a normal human being rather than a label.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Some superstitions, are clearly based on logic (unlucky to walk under  a ladder = if something drops from the ladder you're more likely to be  hit by it if you walker under than if you walk around), others like Friday 13th etc just seem like they were created by somebody in order to scare others.

Wasn't Friday the 13th the day all the Knights Templar were stabbed and stuff? I'd say that's a good basis for a back luck day!

Santa is real and when I put my shoes and socks on, I don't do it in that order.

Without being scientific about it now, I think it's a question of ressonance. Very simply said: if you keep focussing negatively, negative things may happen. On the other hand, if you keep being positive, positive things may happen.

Kind regards,

Not superstitious, I love black cats and don't care much about all the other stuff you're (no) supposed to do.

But there are times I've wondered about karma. Which is probably for a large part a self fulfilling prophecy.

Could it be that you were preoccupied (unconsciously) with the necklace and that caused you be just a bit less careful and have those little accidents?

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

The genuine smile on the photo, it's like seeing an old friend after more than 10 years. 

We are old friends but I wish it had been more than 10 years! He keeps popping up where I am and I'm pretty sure he's stalking me :)

I'm watching you right now.  Commando in the office isn't a good look for you.
