There are hundreds of really strange superstitions from around the world...
for example in Turkey:
if you chew gum at night, it is believed that you are actually chewing on the flesh of the dead.
if you spill water on your t-shirt while doing the dishes, you will marry a drunk.
and my favorite one,
if a pregant woman craves fish and doesn't eat it, her baby will be born with the head of a fish.
I personally think this would be awesome to do. there are soooo many, however simple or plain ridiculous, that can be made in to short stories, cartoons, horror thriller films, you name it! we could even make up some new ones, be as dark as you like.
