Old Wive's Tales
For your entertainment, here is a list of old wives tales and superstitions. People have actually believed each of these statements, but virtually all of them are fiction.

Exactly two of them are based upon facts and science. Can you tell which two?

  • If a teen has acne, it means that he or she is sexually active.

  • If you eat cabbage, you will grow large breasts.

  • If you eat spinach, you will become as strong as Popeye.

  • Wearing green to a wedding is bad luck.

  • If you give knives as a gift, then you should include a coin or the relationship will be severed.

  • If you see a penny pick it up, and all day long you will have good luck.

  • Only a coin with the head side up is good luck.

  • A bird that flies into your house or dies by flying into your window signals impending death.

  • It’s bad luck to put a hat on a bed.

  • Don’t get up on the wrong side of the bed; always use the same side to get in and out.

  • If you break a mirror, you will have seven years of bad luck.

  • If your nose itches, then company is coming.

  • If you drop a knife, then a man will come to visit.

  • If you drop a fork, then a woman will come to visit.

  • Hot water freezes faster than cold water.

  • Thunderstorms spoil milk
.
  • Lightning never strikes the same place twice.

  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

  • Feed a cold; starve a fever.

  • Don’t feed milk to a child with a cold, because it will help create more phlegm.

  • Tickling children will cause them to stutter.

  • Rub a stick of butter on a burn to help it heal.

  • Step on a crack, break your mother’s back.

  • If you sing before seven, you will cry before eleven.

  • Red sky at night, sailor’s delight; red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.

Not true sorry cats will pee around like dogs do to find there way back
it's better to keep your cat in for 2 weeks so they get to know there new home then let them out the back garden and out the front of your house so they can look around make sure all nets are down so they can look about outside by the window.

or if your cat will let you put a leash on them and take them for a walk around the block so they can see how to get home when out on there own Fact or Fiction 3028617959 What a Face
