Mehn..in Lag then, they also had this bird they said if you killed it, you'll die in seven days time.

The day I killed it see fear...only me give myself fever.. I apologized to everybody I wronged..swept the whole house for those days and all chores...called my now late grandmom and told her I so much loved her...I felt I was gone.

I saw a stray cat @ our backyard, I wanted to stone it, Only to be told that If I stone and killed it, I will die.... as a kid, since I did not want to die, I just dropped my stones and ran in...That actually made me dislike cats since " it could cause my death" smiley

I'm just wondering nowadays if a 7 year old can buy such a stupid story the way I did...Now that they were born digital from the womb..

2.You'll have nightmares if you look in the mirror at night.
3.If you don't throw your lost tooth on the roof, it won't grow back.

They told me I have my own moon and it follows me whenever I walk, everyone has his/her own moon.

If I shit for person house and that person set my excreta on fire, I'll have a leaking an*s

If I loose a tooth, I should throw it on the roof

If I kill a wall gecko, I'll urinate on the bed

If I whistle at night, I'm calling lalasticlala

At Night if I didn't turn the mirror, a ghost might come out from it.

Sleep paralysis is a sign of ghost pressing u down.

Dejavu means u had similar experience in ur former life before reincarnating.

If someone bites me, I should rub poultry feases on it.

That if we kill an Agama Lizard and bury it with money.

Our pockets will never run dry and we will keep seeing more money in our cupboards.

They told me to bring my Mother's #500 note (then highest currency) that I would be super rich.

My friends who met them before me started showing me about 6k that time #500 notes.

I was astonished and I ransacked the entire home and I couldn't find up to #500. I was sad, I needed to buy a phone like my mates.

Unknown to me is that these people were scammers and they planned it all along.

They later went to another environ sha.

I sha tried it when I started making small money grin. but I later went to root my money back since nothing came out.
