EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND - MAY 13: Andrew McDonald of Edinburgh Dungeon smashes a mirror with a mallet to dispel the superstition of seven years bad luck on May 13, 2005 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Visitors to the Dungeon walked under a huge ladder, past upside-down horseshoes and across the path of a black cat and joined staff opening umbrellas indoors in an experiment to prove that there is nothing un-lucky about Friday 13th.
