Behka’s Enquiring Minds: Superstitions [SURVEY]
You know that superstition where people hold their breath while they’re driving through a tunnel? It almost got a bunch of people KILLED this weekend.
19-year-old Daniel Calhon of Snohomish, Washington clearly follows that superstition. He was driving his 1990 Toyota Camry on Sunday afternoon through Manning, Oregon when he went through a tunnel. And he held his breath. Unfortunately, he REALLY committed to the superstition . . . and ended up PASSING OUT. He drifted into the next lane, crashed head-on into a Ford Explorer, then got hit by a GMC pickup. Daniel was hospitalized, along with a 19-year-old friend he had in the car, the 67-year-old driving the Ford Explorer, and his 61-year-old passenger. The people in the pickup weren’t injured. The only person still in the hospital is Daniel’s friend, who’s listed in serious condition. Daniel has been charged with reckless driving, reckless endangerment, and assault. Now I’m not saying that you guys would go that far, but it got me to thinking: What are you superstitious about? Some people are pretty superstitious when it comes to sports – they have to have the same shirt on, or the eat the same food, etc. Is there a little thing you do just because you heard it was good luck – like throwing a little salt over your shoulder, or knocking on wood? Does it work? Let me know here in our survey, in the comments, or you can comment on Facebook. Let me know and I’ll share your answers on the air!
