So what is your side of the story of what happened........?

But it was published online. You can't publish stories on the internet that aren't true! Get real.

I find superstitions to be absolutely ridiculous... how can you not?

You questioned my post that I felt there is more to the story. You referred me to the three stories you posted. I stated that stories are that stories and only the people involved know the truth. You asked for my side, so I replied.

I never stated that you said the stories are the truth. I just think that what you posted is a single view of what really happened.
