    yup i do sometimes. it really bothers me occasionaly. i guess its kind of like a very minor OCD. sometimes when ive got other things on my mind, i really try to avoid them, but if im just strolling around with mates or whatever, it dosent bother me. its weird. you've opened up a deep wound Lamp....:)

    Why DO people avoid them ? Do they think something awful's going to happen to them if they step in the cracks ? Like fall down the crack and freefall 104 miles into the centre of the earth ?

    yep, if i walk and i need to pass time i avoid them. doing special steps and rythms. nothing superstecious or anything at all, just boredom

    I have weird moments where I will only step in certain patterns o_O e.g. I'll skip every second square in the ground... I still do this now, no idea why :eek:

    This might sound really wierd to most of you, but I avoid/step over the invisible angle/laserbeam that corners sends out :(

    A normal corner is 90degrees and if you cut that in half with a straight line you'll have the invisible angle or whatever you wanna call it, that I avoid most of the time.. Was worse when I was little! Had sick twisted wierd games I played inside of my head and sometimes I still do.. I've tried to picture what I am talking about btw :D

    Sometimes I also start making up a story.. First it's just in my head, but most of the time it evolves into something very lifelike where I am talking to myself(for all the characters in my story) and sometimes I even start yelling before I "wake up" and realise what I am doing

    I'm such a psyco :(

    CorNokZ, how can you avoid that? :eek7:

    I mean, laser beam, straight line, infinity, no turning corners?

    About the cracks in the sidewalk, depends on the crack size really. If it's a small crack, with little opening, i don't even notice that much. If it's a foot sized caping hole in it, ofcourse i avoid it.

    I avoid anything that will possibly f*ck me up.

    i did it for a day but it annoyed me having to look at the floor so it was just a one off.

    the 3 drains myth about bad luck, i know its bullshit but i still avoid them!

    But the worst thing for me is that it doesn't even have to be three drains, I studiously avoid the BT slab things. I'm ok when I'm walking a route I know, but if I'm in unfamiliar territory I can't take my eyes off the floor. Many a lamp post have met their doom at the force of my spam!

    used to avoid the cracks when i was really young, like 5 or 6 years old. don't bother me now though

    Yeah, used to play some thing like this too when walking to primary school with my mother. Each crack you jumped over was a point. We also do it for drains too.

    I just step over the line.. But I must admit that corners do scare me a little(not really, but still) :(

    No, the pursuit of crack is my only goal in life.

    Aaaah, well that explains this unexplainable phobia a bit. It's a grounded laser, not a laserbeam of death type a thing.

    I thought it would tickle someones funnybone :D

    It was his technical diagram of laserbeam precision on crack avoiding and your response that made me LOL irl

    Whats wrong with just walking over them ?
