Apparently some people believe that it’s good luck when a bird poops on you. I can’t imagine that this is something all that many people really believe — but in addition to blurbs about this on the Internetweb, some people in my real life as well have heard of this superstition.
Ok fine, if a bird poops on you one time, then you win the lottery the next day, even I would have trouble arguing against “the pooping” being good luck. However, this scenario is quite unlikely. What’s more likely is a bird pooping on you every day, for the rest of your life. And to me (I don’t know about you), if I got pooped on every day, I’d kinda feel like I have bad luck.
