3rd place in Derby #600: Superstitions!
we’re crazy about science right now, and that’s probably for the best, but it means we’re losing sight of those quaint old-school superstitions that, while inherently stupid, are very entertaining. if you happen to see a disgusting old penny on the ground, it’s good luck. the mutilated appendage of a rabbit might help you through difficult times. if you don’t mumble something at me after i sneeze, evil will enter my tummy. oh! we have believed for generations - and we’re still not totally unconvinced - that cats can shapeshift. ok that one is probably true.
