I know i'm going to regret asking this question...but what exactly do the Magpies in Magpie Valley do to let you know we are going to win a game?
As you have asked register, I will share the method and formulae with you. I have been driving the same stretch of road in North Devon twice a week for over seven years now. For a good number of miles along this road, there are always a good number of magpies mostly sitting on tree branches.
Now as we know if you see one on its own its represents sorrow and two together it indicates joy. So I would see one on its own and think NO that’s some sorrow coming my way, but then I would see two and feel a whole lot better.
One day just to play a game to amuse myself, I decided to count how many magpies were in twos on the left hand side of the road and how many were in twos on the right hand side of the road.
The next day we had a match and won it and the day before in magpie valley, there were more groups of two on the left hand side of the road than the right. It became a bit of a habit counting them each time I drove along this road and nearly ever time more pairs were on the left hand side of the road we won our game and when more were on the right hand side we lost.
I recon it’s been about 80% right since I started relating it to our results and that is a surprisingly high percentage. Well you did ask didn’t you.
