Can't be too careful

Today is Friday the 13th, which got us thinking about Yale superstitions, two of which are suggested by this photo. Depending on who's telling the story, Yale students will not graduate if they (a) step on the millstone embedded in the sidewalk of Branford College or (b) pass through the Memorial Gate before graduation. (The risk of the latter is low, as the gate is almost always locked.)
