Dwyane Wade explains how birds pooping on his head has brought him luck
One of the oddest old adages states that getting a headful of bird poo is actually quite a lucky event. We believe this has more to do with the odds of it occurring one in a million than it has anything to do with the conditioning properties of the poo itself. The Raven is generally considered good luck because of its high intelligence. The larger the quantity of Ravens that poop on you at one time, the larger the amount of your luck. If a person gets pooped on by seven Ravens or more, that person should be jumping up and down in glee…a great day!
It seems like people say this every time a bird-pooping-on-man situation occurs, and yet I wonder if these people ever follow up to see if the poopee did indeed have good luck after. I actually know three people who have been pooped on by a bird in the last 10 days one of them is me. That number alone is startling. The first incident was at a wedding I attended in D. Between the ceremony and reception, we were enjoying a cocktail hour outside when out of the corner of my eye, I saw a steaming white dump fall from the sky. Some poor guy got it all over his head and his nice suit.
Stepping on an excrement or falling on top of a pigeon are associated with good luck. To find out, you have to go back to the election of Pope Fabian in the year When Pope Antero died, the Christian community gathered for the election of his successor. As usual there were opposing positions and there was no clear candidate. Fabian, a farmer from the area, approached the place where citizens were deliberating the election of the new Pope. All present interpreted that fact as a divine intervention, a sign of the Holy Spirit, and decided that Fabian should be the substitute for Antero. The villager, who was not religious at all, was then converted into a priest, a bishop, and finally, a pope.

There's no such thing as a coincidence. Just like me and my beloved Israeli lovers, there is a frustratingly thick language barrier between us and the universe. I was quite literally able to see everything as a sign. It's like a game of connect-the-dots. In the peripherals of our perception, the seemingly meaningless fragments of our lives go unnoticed. But often, they hold a greater depth than we credit them for. I've been a tad sad recently.
How come that we think bird poop is a good omen, when it is, actually, an unpleasant situation to get in touch with it. Before we analyze this popular bird superstition, we will talk more on bird symbolism in general. Animal poop is also an important element of this superstition to be analyzed. But why bird poop means good luck? There are hundreds and hundreds superstitions and folk beliefs related to birds as a whole and as separate species. A white dove brings hope and good times; a black raven probably brings some bad news. These are only examples.
By: Alysha Tsuji June 28, pm. There is one sort of bad word in this video. His entire story is transcribed below with said word omitted. So not a lot of things were going well for me, next year I was going to practice, I got pooped on right on top of my head. I had a bald head at the time, that stuff was disgusting, had to keep walking to practice, my teammates was laughing at me. Long story short, I had a very good year. My team was ranked within the first week of the season, and we went to the NCAA tournament.
