... But I do find that some of associations used to link some of these curses a little vague and tenuous.

I once appeared on "Watchdog". If I die within the 10-15 years, will someone find that I have been subject to some kind of curse? After all, there must have been something scary (apart from 'her') that has been on there that might warrant a curse.

Chris the Ancient This may come as a intresting fact to you & although is slightly off topic, My wife is from South America, & they belive VERY strongly in Voodoo & all kinds of Black Magic..

Perhaps the most famous curse on the 20th century is the curse of the Tomb of Tutankhamen. It turned out to be an invention of a novelist, and taken up with enthusiasm by the media after the death of Lord Carnarvon.

Most other members of the expedition lived to respectable ages.

I don't know if you have taken your reading further on the Tomb of Tut, but one of the books I am reading now talks of Carter and co robbing the site for months before 'discovering' it.

And they were surely all cursed as they've all died since...

Rational answer to all of these, its just foolish people wanting to believe it is something else, with a number of fabrications I would reckon.

I had previously heard this rumour concerning Howard Carter. However IF robbing did occur, I suspect it was for a few souvenirs, rather than classic tomb robbing as such.

I feel the charge against him is "not proven".

Interesting read, but the only one that seems genuinely spooky is the one about the omen. Anyone ever thought it spooky that nearly all the major players in The Great Escape are dead......? Spooooooky!
