3 on a match

The one I'm most superstitious about is not listed. It's the "3 on a match" thingie, where you're not supposed to light three things with the same match. The origin of the superstition is supposed to be that, in WWI, in the trenches, lighting 3 cigarettes from the same match gave the sniper in the opposite trench time to figure out where you were. And even though I'm not in a trench, I wind up using a ton of matches if I'm lighting candles.

wouldnt they burn up before you could light three cigarettes unless you had three in your mouth wich would be just wrong even if you were a heavy smoker
