Natural Order - Human - Superstitutions

My Brazilian Catholic in-laws warned me when I moved to trash a voodoo idol on a beach, "Don't touch that!  It will bring you bad luck!"  I intended to be careful in case it was tainted with poison or chemicals intended to reinforce the superstition, but relented rather than cause problems with the in-laws.  My wife nearly burned-down the apartment twice with her religious candles.  You know, the one's you pay twice the price for because they have religious art or symbols printed on them.

The jewish lady I was dating got upset when I noticed something in her garden and picked it up.  It was a cameo she had buried along with all her other cameos after a friend told her to burry them in individual graves to avoid bad luck.
