  • "Especially dangerous are the evenings of Wednesday and the Sabbath, for then Agrat Bat Machlat, the dancing roof demon haunts the air with the train of eighteen myriads of messagers of destruction, every one of them has the power of doing harm. On those nights one would not drink water except out of white vessels and after having recited Psalm 29:3-9 (in it the "voice of God" is mentioned several times) and other magical formulas." (From Amazing Jewish Facts and Curiosities: Can You Believe It?)

  • Hah! Well it was translated from an old Jewish tale... maybe they forgot the crushing reality of numbering a 'myriad.'
