    Wiki has a good page on the Hamsa (Probably where CPJ went). The "Evil Eye" isn't always found on them, but probably more have it than not!

    It amazes me how many disparate cultures share certain superstitions. Most here will remember my "Aughkstra", the stained glass window I originally had made for our home in California, that was finally installed in a window built just for it here in Florida. It too has the Evil Eye in its Hamsa:

    Uh, no.
    I've never understood the preoccupation with tans, plus I prefer to avoid skin cancer and even just plain ol' sun damage. My (tanned) arms look like crap.
