Talking Myths

Speaking about superstitions, some of them never stop me from wondering. For one, if horseshoes are supposed to be lucky, then domesticated horses should be the luckiest creatures on earth. They have four of them!

But tell me, have you ever seen headlines such as "Betsy the Horse wins Lottery!"? I haven't. And if they're so lucky, why there's only ONE winner on a horse race? Isn't losing a bad luck?

And what's this about a rabbit's foot being lucky? I mean, the creature whose foot being carried around in your pocket isn't so lucky, is it?
