For all my myLot friends - I would like to share some advice that some of my friends on myLot told me about. I thought I'd share it with you, since it can really multiply your earnings on myLot. I have been informed that, when you post/reply to discussions, if you write at least six lines, you will be paid a higher amount for that, than if you were to just write one or two lines. If you can keep your sentences short, then six lines is not a lot ! So friends, try to keep this advice in mind for your future discussions and the money start to add up quicker than it was before.

Superstitious beliefs

    For a lot of people nowadays, superstition is an irrational belief in some kind of magic that does not make sense. Sometimes, it is a bit difficult to be objective about "My" beliefs and "yours". Well, superstitious phenomena include, for some people if not all: fortune telling, astrology, having lucky or unlucky numbers, prophecy, reincarnation, an afterlife, divine intervention, and so forth.

    Even people who reject all religious and other 'superstitious' ideas may believe in things that do not seem to have an objective reality. I remember my mother telling me that there is nothing wrong if you keep some superstitions and you wouldn't lose anything if you do follow them completely. I guess to some extent she's right when she says that there is no real big deal in following or believing some superstitions.

    I really do not know if I believe in them completely but I do follow some of these beliefs which I guess I can be classified as superstitious like: walking under ladders, crossing on stairs, sitting in one particular chair when my favourite team play, turning over silver and wish on full moon or a star, a black cat crossing your path, a mirror breaking will bring bad luck for many years, etc.

    Now, would you admit that somehow there is one superstition you follow, if not, believe in? Often today's superstition is tomorrow's truth. So never dismiss the mystery in life, the newest discovery may be just around the corner. Even though our society is fast progressing, there are many people who are still superstitious and have a strong faith in the local beliefs. While some of them are quite hilarious, few others are really interesting. But these so called superstitious beliefs do not conflict with my so called normal beliefs. Both beliefs can coexist peacefully.
