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

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?

No two people share exactly the same likes and interests.

But on occasion, one might find themselves being among the few, if not the sole members of a certain fan club.

Indeed, while Cats earned a place on the list of the worst movies of all time, its 19% score on Rotten Tomatoes suggests that there are a handful of people who actually liked it.

Or while many people dread having to clean their homes, some simply can't wait to get started, and will look for any and every opportunity to do so.

It's usually a good feeling to be "on top".

To be found at the top of the list of a notable or unique accomplishment.

Though having the distinction of being in the top 0.1 percent of something might not always be something to brag about, resulting in some keeping this distinction to themselves.

If only because some people might be unusually fascinated by their so-called "accomplishment", that they'll never stop being bombarded by questions.

Redditor ImLostInTheForrest was curious to hear if any members of the Reddit community believed they were in the 0.1 percent of anything, be it commendable, bizarre or unfortunate, leading them to ask:

"What’s something you believe you may be in the 0.1% of?"
