"After washes oneself one has to jump in a pit of slurry and then don't eat three days."
"After one makes a campfire of pine wood one has to breath through a package with it's ashes."
"Put six spoons of salt in a glass water to not get sick with plague."
"In early morning, before sunrise make a ring of nettles around your house. In the evening of the same day after sunset run over nettles with bare foot three times and then burn nettles."
"Kill a horse and drink it's blood instead of water two days."
"Do not eat pig' meat."
"Wear your clothes on the opposite side."
