Bad luck and trouble, been my only friend.....now this!
That's so dumb. Bics weren't even a thing until long after those guys died. This is typical of internet hoaxes. Nobody checks the facts.
Damned if I know a thing about white lighters, but...
if a salt shaker gets knocked over anywhere in my vicinity, I’m throwing some over my left shoulder. I don’t care what the setting is.
Obviously, I’m not invited to many folks homes for dinner
most of the Bic ones have a sleeve on it with some decor but they're white underneath soooo
Of course nobody checks the facts.....
If they had, they'd have found out it's really about silver Zippos.......
I do that and I don't believe in anything, still, minimal investment, and how can it hurt?*
I did that in front of my conservative coworkers once. "Damn, he's not only a socialist, he's a pagan too!" someone said..
* We all laughed but there may have been a cost to that.
Is this a flat earther thing?
That happens often enough currently. Black widows in the bananas.
Times have changed!
I actually ( 1980!) bought all my groomsmen buddies at my Wedding cool, gold, refillable butane lighters as " Thank You!" gifts!
We all smoked cigarettes then ( my wife too), but all quit eventually.
I stil buy white BIC's today, or ones with plastic graphics that you can peel off, and the lighter is white. Easy to see fluid level.
If it was not for bad luck would not have any at all.
Mmm, just noticed I have a grey and a black BIC lighter on the table... I don't use them they just get left here...
there was only an old black one here last week, now there's a grey one beside it....
is there any urban myths about a mysterious grey BIC lighter just turning up?...
I ain’t superstitious....don’t smoke, either, but we do light candles and **** on occasion.
I prefer blue as a BIC color, but somebody always steals it ...
I used to find that whatever colour lighter I went out with, I'd always come home with a different coloured one.
And it always had less fuel in it...
I must admit that in college, I stole a Zippo from a buddy. Am I cursed? I still have it.
I use the cursed plain white ones bec no one steals them
I know in school it was a myth among the hmmm... indulgent crowd
Never knew where it came from and never bought into it
I remember having debates about if one that came from the factory with a wrapping that is lost still constitutes a “white lighter”, some deep thinking going on there....
I also remember one guy that was really adamant about not using them
This is weird. I’ve been a part of that, ahem... “culture” and/or surrounded by it for most of my life. Never heard of the white lighter myth. I always heard red ones were bad luck. I once had a white D’Jeep lighter that was possessed. Or magic. Or something. That thing worked perfectly for six years. Never ran out of gas. I eventually lost it. For all I know it’s still going.
Never heard those stories. Always someone getting busted while using a white lighter.
This (culture reference) just reminded me about cigarettes, the same people that believe in the white lighter would always when opening a new pack put one back in upside down, that was the lucky smoke, some would have two with the second one being their after “mister nasty time” smoke
