    anyone else have crazy superstitions?

    I have a cowboys flag on my house, and no joke the week romo broke his pinkie the heavy wind ripped the flag. I let it hang with two giant rips until the bye week.

    I put up a bigger new one. And I am extremely superstitious. So I am giving all credit to my flag. And I also havent shaved since the sunday of the bye, I thought maybe a beard would bring some new luck!!!!

    My wife hates me.

    I've had season tix since '89 and I'm worse than a hockey goalie with my superstitions. From my Austin Training camp t-shirt that I wear under my jersey/sweatshirts on gameday...A Cowboys zippo that I only use during the season...Then there are things only broken out for changes in luck...We've also played catch with an Aikman signed gameball (I had 3 of 'em) on gamedays...

    There's a certain combo of shorts, sweatshirt, cap, etc...that's working right now...Ok here's an odd one. We drive 3.5 hours from driveway to Texas Stadium parking lot. (We moved out of DFW in early '07.) My dad was the world's biggest Cowboys fan, (deceased), and I go by the small W.Texas cemetary on my way to home games. Last year I thought my g/f was starting to get creeped out by it...she was asleep in the pass. side and I drove right past the turn to go see dad. She bolted up and said "You missed our turn! Are you trying to jinx us!?" :star:

    That you think that's abnormal speaks volumes.

    FYI, if it's OCD, then it's abnormal. And no, it's not OCD or abnormal to "HAVE to" take showers daily. It's actually what society expects of you. So, please, do continue.

    OCD stands for obsessive, compulsive disorder

    it doesn't have to be abnormal behaviour, it's when someone obsessively has to do something, in my case I have to take a shower everyday, it's probably pretty mild in my case because I don't have to take multiple showers throughout the day, like some people have to always wash their hands after touching everything

    but as usual you don't know what the **** you're talking about

    It's a disorder, no? Then it's abnormal. Learn the language, please.

    So let's say you take a Shower on Sunday Night.....and then take your next one on Tuesday Morning.....would your OCD make you paranoid?

    abnormal means something that is not considered normal

    OCD is not abnormal behavior, it's behavior that is compulsive

    and disorders don't automatically make something abnormal


    OCD does make you paranoid, it can make you anxious too, if you have OCD over something and you don't do it, you anxiously think about it

    mine is pretty mild because I can miss a shower if I'm going to be really late for work, which sometimes happens when I get a hangover
