Best Ways to Get Rid of or Avoid Bad Luck

The Top Ten

1 Throw salt over your left shoulder


And get hit in the face because you've thrown it straight into the eye of an irate individual? Thank you! Really useful! - Britgirl

It seems that it works. I get benefit from it.

2 Hang a horseshoe in your home for protection

Horse shoe: Horse shoes are said to be lucky, as they ward off the "evil eye". Hang one in your home for protection or wear a horse shoe symbol on a chain - just make sure the ends are pointed upwards, otherwise the good luck can "escape".

This seems so cool!
It would be like the cowboy inns :P - Ananya

3 Use the left hind foot of the rabbit

To activate the good luck, stroke or rub the foot. The foot must be the left hind foot.

Jagannath University is the most popular university in Bangladesh.

4 Find a four-leaf clover
5 Avoid getting your left arm/left leg dressed first

This doesn't make any sense! How is this supposed to help you?! SOME PEOPLE JUST NATURALLY DO THIS AND NOTHING HAPPENS! How does knitting socks for your boyfriend, turning bread upside down, or picking up a knife bring bad luck? This is all superstition, which in most cases has been proven wrong. So what if people put things on using their left leg, arm, or WHATEVER THE HECK ELSE? They have a ' right to do that!
Sorry, I lost my temper there. BUT ALL THIS ISN'T RIGHT!

As a righty I don't, naturally. Nor do I take interest in bizarre superstitions. Or do I?!?! Do I?!?! WHERE'S THE RIGHT SLEEVE?!?! I'M LOSING MY SANITY! - PositronWildhawk

Avoid putting your shoes on a table

Do not plot plus

6 Avoid turning a bread upside down after it has been sliced

Turning a loaf of bread upside down once it has been sliced will bring you terrible luck.

Sorry, but how is this supposed to help me? I do this all the time and nothing happens -.-

7 Avoid knitting a pair of socks for your boyfriend

Unless you are engaged, avoid this at all costs! - PetSounds

I don't KNOW HOW TO KNIT GaH o_O - AlphaQ

8 Avoid picking up the knife you just dropped

I'll get EVEN MORE bad luck because my parents will be like "WHY YOU SO LAZY? PICK IT UP YOURSELF! " I would pick it up myself to avoid having to hear that from my parents.

Before you do that, you should clean off the blood of the victim you just murdered with that knife. Who carries a knife around with them, and then is so lazy they will let it fall out of their pocket! This is dangerous people! - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

If you ever drop a knife, picking it up yourself will bring you bad luck in money and love. You should ask someone else to pick it up for you.

Wait you'd then seem real lazy

9 Avoid stabbing needles in yarn

Stabbing needles through your yarn balls brings bad luck to anyone who wears something made from that yarn.

10 Avoid picking a penny up if it is tails up

Idgaf what side I just pick it up - AlphaQ

A penny is MONEY! Doesn't matter what side it is!

Screw tails. It's free money! - TwilightKitsune
