Not at all, but I did the following today:

1)Did not walk under ladders
2)Threw salt over my right shoulder.
3)Kept an eye out for black cats.
4)Did not pick up a mirror lessening its ability to break

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)

I certainly would not tempt fate by boarding Flight 666 to HEL (though I hear it's fully booked).....

Would you board Flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th? - World - CBC News

Now you've done it!
When I was a kid, the conventional wisdom (mature female spouse's tale) was that if you spilled salt, you must immediately toss a pinch of it over your LEFT shoulder. I can't even imagine the ramifications of your bizarre twist on a perfectly good superstition.

Another fine mess you've gotten yourself into.

No, but just to be sure I hid under the bed all day yesterday.

As for FinanceDude, well, after throwing salt over the wrong shoulder he may as well just turn on the gas. He's doomed.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.

I'll never remember how to either pronounce or spell the term. Will that have any bearing on whether I'm doomed or not?

Wherever you go, there you are.
(In other words, no whining!)
