things my mother warned me about that have yet to happen*

TV going on fire if not unplugged at night

Oil soaked rags spontaneously combusting in the bin

Iron pots that have boiled dry explodng into shrapnel on coming into contact with cold water

However, it is possible that my French teacher was right about sitting on concrete causing haemorrhoids.

My grandfather used to tell us that eating mustard would put hair on our chests.
So far, still hairless in that area.

In fairness to my mother and your grandfather, he probably didn't mean that literally :)
