Yes. But my lawyer thinks he can plea bargain it down to 2 years probation...
If that's true ten I should either already be dead or I'll have to live to about 175 just to receive all the accumulated bad luck. I cleaned out houses after fires and floods for years and I broke many mirrors when tossing them into dumpsters. Maybe I broke so many that the bad luck kind of bent back on itself or something. Or maybe it's only taking a few decades to kick in.
It brings up so many other things that are supposed to be bad luck too. Like spilling salt and not tossing over your shoulder (I forget which shoulder). The reason I don't believe them is that both salt and mirrors were once prohibitively expensive and breaking a mirror or spilling salt was a financial nightmare. Mirrors were also very hard to come by once. I think someone just started those superstitions either to make their own children be more careful, or to make the hired help more careful.
I'm sure the mirror as a connection to the spirit world plays a big part in why the superstition persisted and is still so common today. The salt thing comes from back when getting salt was labor intensive and it was difficult to get inland for from the ocean. It was necessary as a meat preservative as well as a seasoning for food. Roman soldiers and laborers were often given salt as part of their payment. It was also used at times to purchase slaves. The term "He's not worth his salt" comes from that, if you've ever happened to hear of that term. It's meaning was either that someone wasn't worth their weight in salt or that they weren't worth the salt it took to pay them or to purchase them. Since salt was practically a currency back then, it's little wonder that it was considered bad luck to spill it or waste it. The superstition developed with the idea that an evil spirit behind you had caused you to spill the salt, and that it may have more mayhem in store for you. By throwing a pinch of salt over your shoulder, you effectively blinded the evil spirit, who would then leave you in peace.
Well, I hope I never have to find out.
Not at all
Maybe just maybe but I doubt it lol
I wouldn't like to think so with the amount of mirrors I've broke this year alone :(
Breaking a condom can get you 18 years bad luck
yes it happened to me!
I accidently stepped on a small mirror that had fallen on the floor. Shortly after that my girlfriend took me to court. Then I lost my job because of drinking and that caused me to lose my house. 7 after I broke the mirror I found a $20 bill at the Laundry Mat and I took a chance went to the bingo and when $35. Might just be coincidence but maybe not.
