Can “Sanpaku Eyes” Determine Your Fate?

Besides tragically early demises, what do James Dean, Princess Diana, Marilyn Monroe, Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy have in common? They all had “sanpaku eyes.” Coincidence?

Not according to a Japanese superstition. The Japanese term “sanpaku” translates loosely to “three white eyes” and refers to the human eye and the visibility of the whites of the eye on three sides surrounding the iris.

Superstition has it that this condition appears in people who are doomed in some way to suffer an evil fate or early demise.
