    Not superstitious at all, but I had lots of OCD-related "superstitions" growing up, like always having to do things in threes, or if I turned around twice one way, I'd have to turn around twice in the other direction.

    I did a lot of theatre growing up, and there were TONS of theatre related superstitions that I always thought were silly. Had to continually fight the urge to do this:

    YouTube - Don't mention Macbeth - Blackadder - BBC
    Something Witty

    I don't like to talk about negative things or actually joke about people dying. It's a weird balance, because I do joke about dying or killing people.

    On September 18 this year I got this fortune cookie:

    "Remember three months from this date! Your lucky star is shining."

    A couple of months later I found out there would be layoffs at my work which were effective as of December 18, but I was not among the people being laid off. Also one of the decision makers was a guy who has had it out for me all year.

    There is this one Japaneese thing I do for new years.

    They say the first three days of the new year you shouldn't spend money because then you will spend money the rest of the year.

    The first three days of the year are considered a national holiday.
    No one wants to work(too much) for the rest of the year either.

    So I'm studying these days because that's a productive activity I wouldn't mind being in the habit of for the rest of the year.

    Lol .. I do enjoy watching people pick up coins off the floor, especially when myself and a few colleagues are observing from afar .. Yeah, we super glued
    them to the floor once .. Some people will just keep on persevering though .. We laughed so hard.

    Used to be into superstition but no longer.

    But it IS lucky to find money on the ground.
    (unless its super glued, then it's just money super glued to the ground)

    Just like its lucky to find a pencil on the floor when you lack one and have a test the next period.
    :P
