What are the most absurd Charedi beliefs?

@efink opens with "Its ossur to wear jeans"

I think: "You can't say kiddush between 6 and 7 pm" is more absurd. See, the basis for this crazy custom is that for some reason its not right to say kiddush when the planet Mars is in some constellation. Only due to changes over the last 2000 odd years, Mars is no longer in that spot between 6 and 7 p.m.

Also, "The moon landing didn't happen because [obscure posuk] rules it out" is pretty bad and "the teva has changed" is hard to top.

What else you got?
