Hey everyone, I'm in the process of writing about cultural taboos around the world. Some of these such as cannibalism are universally considered as taboo but I want to find out more about taboos that are unusual, or unique to certain cultures.

I also want to know the more quirky habits of a culture, like where I am from you are told never to walk under a ladder (maybe that's quite common, I'm not sure). Thanks for any contribution, KJ.
