in the UK Millions of people admit to being superstitious.
2. To break a mirror will bring seven years bad luck.
To undo the bad luck that will come your way, find seven leprechauns, a seven leafed clover and hop seven time backwards round the bend.

There is no way out of this one so to avoid triggering Armageddon so stand in the rain and get wet whilst trying to find the open button on your umbrella. This may take some time and you may get soaked but that has got to be better than unleashing the forces of the dark side.
