As to your response, you have your interpretation (which I actually like) and I have mine, so let's agree to disagree, yeah? Cos this debate will go on for days.

I seriously believe pubs, the police and hospitals exist for the likes of us who have this kind of debate.

EDIT: in case you weren't sure, I still stand by my comments. When comes to Scotland's history, I'm as stubborn as my gran's Roast Beef.

i dont know if this is really filipino, but i kno at least this is what filipino american kids are taught:

Dont go to bed with your hair wet, or you'll wake up insane or blind.
If the father of an unborn child doesn't sleep in the same bed as the pregnant mother, there's this vampire that will come in the room and eat the baby, possibly leaving the mother to die too. (scary)
Uhmm.. Theres this scary deformed ugly huge Man-monster thing called Unhab.. dunno how to spell the name, but n e ways, if kids are loud or rude to their parents, the Unhab comes out, sneaks in their room and eats them. He's ultra silent, has a huge mouth and huge stomach.
...uhm.. if i think of more ill post. I love stuff like this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fan_death

In Korea they believe that if you leave a fan on while you are sleeping with the windows and doors closed you will die in your sleep. Because:
!. The fan sucks all the air up in the room.
2. the fans causes hypothermia
3. Koreans have a different physiology

let's see... warning strange:

that chicken heads are the best sacrafice for the gods.... you dig a hole, burry the chicken but you have to leave the head out and then BAM! you hit the head several times till the chicken dies..... poor chicken T.T. My people (not the dutch i'm only half dutch) used to do it as a sacrafice cause it never freaking rains here T.T no wonder there are no farms. This sacrafice is now illegale for about 30-50 years.

Heres a myth from Australia. The Yowie

There is a town in South East Queensland where it has been reported a strange animal roams free. This animal is rumored to be over seven foot tall covered with thick dark brown hair and roams in the mountains just behind the town. Numerous people have sited this strange creature and many more people have ventured into the surrounding mountains just to catch a glimpse. It is also told that if you listen you can hear the growl of this animal at night. Don't believe me? Go to the town of Kilcoy, a town between Brisbane and Toowoomba, which is situated in South East Queensland. There you will see a statue erected in the shape of the mysterious Yowie. But be warned if you venture into his territory, he may be watching you.!!

Sounds like a big foot myth to me.


buddy.. its a full grown bear.. trust me..

where I come from we have a "Democracy" but that's a myth!! other myths include the
freedom to do anything, freedom of speech, and the freedom to a equal opportunity for all the people.
That is just a few!
