Are You Superstitious?
Do you think you're not superstitious? Then test it using this simple little experiment
devised by John Stilgoe:
Stilgoe's Law: to test if you are really NOT superstitious.
Bring a photograph of your romantic partner, or of a son or daughter to a meeting. Here is an ice pick. Will you poke out the eyes in the picture? Will you poke out the eyes for ten dollars? Most students will not do this, the image has the power of a voodoo doll.

Personally, I would fail. (via Liquito
