    Default old wives tales

    I'm looking for type of old wives tale, especially when it comes to (something new, something old, something borrowed and something blue.) My sister would keep asking me about what I'd like to be blue, I only want three things blue and if no black tiebow, I'd rather go for dark serulian black. I just love hearing wives tales, which when one day during college I dropped a porridge spoon, one friend said that someone is going to visit me. I also walked around a ladder instead of under it. also the funny thing is the day I broke a mirror my friend said I won't get more bad luck I only made more mirrors.
    Thank you for the gift Nespa

    Can you just explain what you mean by "wives tales" @Lady_Baneheart_Of_Blades? I don't think I understand what you are asking for. *Very tired* Is that like "if you do this then this will happen?" Like throwing salt over your shoulder when a black cat crosses the street?

    like some of the stuff listed here http://www.writers-free-reference.com/13wivestales.htm

    An old wives tale is just like an urban legend. Passed down by old wives to younger generations. Usually superstitious, folklore and unverified or exaggerated claims and untrue details.
    "“Loneliness is a disease that can lead to death. They might as well be the same thing.”---spice and wolf

    “When you're surrounded by all these people, it can be lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anyone or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone.” -- Fiona Apple

    Salt does not make water boil faster; however, it does make the pasta taste slightly better.

    but...but...physics ;-;
    specific heat capacity!
    water = 4.184 Joules/gram per degree celcius
    Salt water = 3.9827 Joules/gram perdegree celcius
    (the closer to 0 the easier to heat)
    It's not noticable but it does heat faster.

    It's not noticeable, also, pasta boiled in pure salt water is gross.

    My mom tells me weird ones, she said if you're pregnant, don't garden while squatting down in the ground. O_o

    I dont believe in those things but I mean I'm the person that wants to be safe than sorry.

    There are a lot of old wives tales in Brazil. Mum would tell me heaps.
    She's a nutritionist and there's a superstition that you die if you drink milk after eating a mango. She couldn't believe how many people believed that.
    Another one is when you have visitors you want to leave, just put a broom upside down behind the door. Grandma would do that a lot to make mum's friends leave when they were early teens.

    Wacky urban legends are a lot of fun, too.
    If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.
