Fortune Cookies and Various Superstitions

Okay, well, my brother and I bought some really awesome Chinese food for dinner tonight. I opened my fortune cookie and this was my fortune:

Be prepared for a sudden, needed, and happy change in plans!
Lucky numbers: 3, 7, 12, 24, 27, 33


Really... what the fuck, Chinese Fortune Cookie? This could apply to any and all plans I'm making or enacting right now. I don't believe in astrology, but I wholeheartedly believe in fortune cookies. Never. Mock. The cookies. I also throw salt over my shoulder if it spills. I developed that habit around some very superstitious friends.

So, what fortunes have you stumbled across in your cookie breaking? Or what superstitions do you follow?

    We don't really get fortune cookies in Australia, only if you go out and buy them specifically.

    But I keep two fortunes in my wallet from the two times I got chinese food last time I visited America.

    The first one, 2 days after I arrived said "There is excitement to be found everywhere you go"

    The second, just before I went home said "You are wise to be deeply attached to your family and home"

    Mine are never fortunes.

    They are always like "You are a good business man"

    Yes yes, of course I know Kung Foo Sing.

    I have hung out with Ben Ely and eaten in Qwan's restaurant.

    But I mean, the only way to get fortune cookies here is to go to an Asian grocery store and buy a box.

    I was always told that if your fortune cookie was empty, it meant that you had no fortune and were going to die.

    Especially if you don't leave enough of a tip to convice the waiter to get you the antidote.

    Since it was takeout though, you're pretty well boned.

    Salt over the shoulder and whatnot

    My grandmother used to throw a plate out onto the lawn every new year

    It had a reason, I just forget what. It was to ensure a good year.

    Well it was an empty plate

    I think you were SUPPOSED to break it on the lawn

    But she'd just toss it and we'd get it the next day

    Then we started using paper plates

    We were lazy superstitious people.
