Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"


Crack away!

"That cracking your knuckles gives you arthritis."- SnooCompliments9257

Though, it's still wise to avoid doing this...

"If you pull out a grey hair three more grow in its place, my sister still believes this one."- oopySpaff

Something to seriously think about.

"We only use 10% or our brain."- wiggywithit

Though they might still not be please you'r touching their child!

"Touching a baby bird will make its parents reject it."

"Any baby animal."

"When in doubt, reach out to your local wildlife rehabilitation network/individual."- JustMeerkats

I can sleep with my mouth open? Who knew!

"That you swallow 8 spiders a year in your sleep."- rentinghappiness

Never pay others to be an entrepreneur.

"MLMs, Boss babes, 'be your own boss' scams."

"I'm not sure how many documentaries need to be put on YouTube before people will stop buying into these companies and wasting their money."- ImAGhostOooooooo

It's literally quite the opposite

"Shaving making hair grow in thicker."- offbrandbarbie

Though a balanced diet doesn't hurt...

"The food pyramid."- sd2528

Best to stay out of the mouths of others regardless

"That dogs mouths are cleaner than humans!"- Mental_Investigator3

Giphy

Just makes you more visible.

"It’s illegal to keep the light on in the car while driving."- rerhodes770

It seems that there is no amount of convincing that will ever lead these people to realize that they've been duped.

And one can't help but wonder what people do with the false information that a dog's mouth is cleaner than a humans?

Movies. Stories. Tears.

All three are a perfect fit.

Film and entertainment allow us freedom to feel everything.

As Nicole Kidman says in her infamous AMC commercial, "heartbreak feels good in a place like this."

Maybe that's why we're meant to watch in the dark.
