10. True story
Back in the 1930s, my mom's good friend won a scholarship to the elite catholic high school. She was Afro-West Indian - a rare group at that school in those days. At Christmas time, they were picking students for the annual nativity play and she wanted to be an angel. The nun in charge looked at her and said: Tut tut child, have you ever seen a black angel. She always told us that she woke up about angels and catholicism that day to the point that she got her Masters degree, became the Minister of Education and cut their government subsidy.

So called rational people believe in a lot of crazy things.
