What Are The Weirdest Superstitions You've Ever Come Across?

"Step on a crack, break your mother's back" is only the beginning.

Everyone's heard a few superstitions in their time, even if they aren't all that superstitious themselves.


But there's a reason why people walk around ladders instead of under them, and why they also freak out when a black cat crosses their path.


Yet weirder superstitions exist around the world, like in Turkey where people believe chewing gum at night may make it turn into human flesh.


Or in China, where hotels don't have fourth floors because the number four is thought to be really unlucky.
