And on a light hearted note...In certain European countries their is a myth/superstition about pumpkins and other gourd like veggies turning into vampires...this usually happens on certain days of the year if it is allowed to sit outside.

Scotland is full of them. I'm not sure that anyone actually believes in Nessie, but it is darned good for tourism.

Almost every battle that the Scots won against the English has a mythology surrounding it, e.g. all that Mel Gibson garbage about William Wallace was taken from the invention of a Scottish poet and has nothing to do with reality. In fact, MG's version even streched that to breaking point.

They try to chase you but have to stop to pull the clippings out of the soles of their feet after treading on them. This gives you enough time to effect your escape.

The myth that everything in Texas is 'bigger'. I never really understood why people think that. Also the myth that everyone in Texas rides horses and has a pasture.

And whats really odd is that whenever I'm traveling and I tell people I live in Texas the first thing they say is [retard voice] "Ain't everthang sposed ta be bigger in Texas?"[/retard voice]

Honestly, give me a break.

There's a place called Marsh Road near where I live and it's believed that if you don't have people in your back seat, some girl who died on that road will appear in your back seat until you get off that road. But that place is closed off now because too many people would do illegal stuff there or something like that. o.o;;

Another one I heard is about some park in San Francisco that if you drive through it, a police officer will pull you over and give you a ticket but if you try to pay for it the police will say that it was never reported. My friend told me that he drove through that park and saw the police in his back mirror, so he drove out of the park and the police car wasn't behind him. o.O Eh, whatever.

I'm not sure, but my Chinese friend told me it was because of the red envelopes that held money in them. -0-?? But I think she was just joking.

OH! I remember going to China once and in all the hotels I went to, they didn't have a 10th floor. o_O I thought 4 was unlucky in China. -.-?
