    Do you wear talismans like crosses, stars, rabbits feet and other stuff for good luck? Or do weird stuff like kiss statues, throw salt or slobber over holy books?

    You'll be safe from the invisible boogie man!

    I never understood why people do that. Statistically they showed fighters who have them or do stuff like that don't do better than fighters who don't. I guess it's the same reason we don't see faith healers in hospitals?

    IDK about faith healers in hospitals but they have priests in jail.

    You can think of it as a placebo or self brain wash. Don't you think they know it's all baloney? But still, it gives them courage. I'm sure army soldiers have a ton of these good luck charms or their wives panties in their pocket before they go out in the field. It just help eases their mind. What do you have to lose?

    Agreed. But we can use it to our advantage. We can wear soiled women's underwear on our head and claim it's for "good luck" or our religion.

    I used to wear a haggled pair of underwear when I'd go oussy cruising trying to get laid, there was a big rip around my gouch.

    When I was a believing Catholic in my pre-teens and early teens , I used to wear a crucifix or a picture of Mary and Jesus.
    Became agnostic in late teens and never wore any kind of charm or religious symbol since.
