My Chinese family believes that if you drink cold water you'll get fat/ won't be able to lose your fat. They always give me a hard time when I have something from the fridge.

People on Balkans and Russia believe that promaja (wind draft) can kill you. It is such a pain, there are times when in my house its so hot and nobody wants to open windows to get some fresh air. People also don't turn on the air conditioner in summer because they believe they will catch a cold.

Lies.
Lies.
