What are some popular myths you know? Or ones that you find many to believe in

My parents honestly believe that sleeping with wet hair will cause unbearable headaches when I get older. It has something to do with water seeping into your brain through the scalpe and causes irreversible damage to the brain. I would really like to know if any older people have this expernce

Not as much as a myth as it is an old wives tale, but my grandparents always told me that if it's raining while the sun is out, it means the devil is beating his wife

I never heard the one about sleeping with a wet head. My mother always said if you went outside on a cold winter day with a wet head you'd catch pneumonia but I never did.

Pretty much everyone I know who works in medical fields says that the lunatics come out when the moon is full. Especially in the Emergency Room they see really strange cases on full moon nights.

There's a superstitious saying : If you're ears are ringing, someone is talking about you. A burning in the ear means someone is talking about you. right ear is good, left ear is bad. Its a real saying believe it or not.

I never heard that.
I just know that if you sleep with wet hair, you wake up with Goku hair, and it takes about three days for it to be brushable again.

There's of course the one about cracking your knuckles will cause arthritis. It won't. The sound we hear is just gas bubbles popping. However if you crack your knuckles too much it could cause tissue damage.

I've heard mother mention that it's best to cut or trim hair when there's a full moon.
