    superstitions

    Discussion started by Dawood - Sep 28, 2005

    I remember when I was a kid, They used to tell you if you broke a mirror it would be 7 years bad luck. And when we would walk down the sidewalk as young bucks, a cat could catch a beat down for cutting the pole, Especially after a bombing (bombing e.g. doing graffiti wink FBI) mission or doing some sort of crime . And I remember the older graff heads form around my way telling me .."Don't ever catch tags after you rock a burner, even a marker tag" The theory was if you did, you would get caught. And the funny thing is, A lot of that stupid stuff, I think I might have actually beleived a little when I was young. I sure-nuff remember beating people down for cutting the pole. What the hell were we thinking???

    Anyone have any stupid superstition stories, I think superstition is one of lifes dumbest things , yet , I find it amazing what people will actually beleive in just because of culture or tradition.

    i'm trying to get rid of em all.
    as you grow, it becomes amazing to learn how mind-fucked humans became.

    in my drug class, this dude on a marijuana video talked about men getting titties that can become milkers, if they smoke too much pot.

    cutting a pole is going past the pole on the other side of the person ur with instead of on the same side. that still pisses me off.
    then u gotta draw an X on their backs. or is that when u step on the back of someones shoe?

    my mom used to tell me chocolate would cause pimples. Id tell her to screw off and eat all the chocolate i wanted.

    i never really believed in any superstitions. except for : if things can go wrong, they will, and if everything seems to good to be true, it probably is.

    I also always do this whenever I spill salt.

    Where I was from, to not cut a pole you had to go on the same side as the oldest person. I remember arguing over who was the oldest.
