    The magician's stock word "hocus pocus" is taken from the name of a mythological sorcerer, Ochus Bochus, who appears in Norse folktales and Legends.
    In parts of Japan, if a black cat crosses one's path, it is considered a sign of good Luck.
    Nearly two thirds of the college and university teachers questioned on the subject of the Occult said they believed that the existence of extrasensory perception was an established fact or a likely possibility.
    The magician's word "abracadabra" is actually an ancient sorcerers' Spell that historians have traced to early medieval times. The English writer Daniel Defoe related that in London during the Black Plague, amulets with the following inscription were worn to keep away the disease:
