15 Counting crows 数乌鸦

No, I’m not referring to the 90′s band. It’s believed that the amount of crows in a murder has the ability to predict your fortune as exemplified by the popular phrase: “One’s bad / Two’s luck / Three’s health / Four’s wealth / Five’s sickness / Six is death.” More than six however seems to be up to the person whose counting.

对。我并不是指90年代的乐队。据说一宗凶杀案中乌鸦的数量可以预测你的未来,以流行短语为范例:“一倒霉、二幸运,三健康,四富贵,五疾病,六死亡”。然而超过六个,就取决于技术的那个人了。

14 Jinxed birds 带来厄运的鸟类
The Wryneck or Jinxtorquilla are a breed of birds that can twist their heads very liberally. A superstitious belief among the locals is that if this bird twists its head towards you, death is on the horizon.
啄木鸟是一种可以随心所欲扭曲它们的头的鸟类。当地的人迷信的认为如果这种鸟的头朝向你,那么死亡正在向你走来。
13 Soul capturing mirrors 捕获灵魂的镜像
Most people use mirrors everyday which means, according to this superstition, most people are soulless. There is a superstition that states that looking into a mirror steals your soul. This helps explain why the evil queen uses a mirror to harm Snow White, why Narcissus was ensnared by his own reflection, and why soulless vampires have no reflection. Think twice before you look into the bathroom mirror…you have been warned.
大多数人每天都是用镜子,根据这一迷信,它意味着大多数人都是没有灵魂的。有迷信声称,(一直)盯着镜子看,它会偷走你的灵魂。这可以帮助解释,为什么邪恶的皇后可以利用镜子伤害白雪公主,为什么那喀索斯会被他自己的影子所迷惑,为什么无灵魂的吸血鬼没有影子。当你在浴室照镜子之前要再三考虑。。。你已被发出警告了。
