Happy Friday the 13th, Everyone!

I don’t have any belief in real effects caused by Friday the 13th. (Other than in Nethack, of course). But it is a fun reminder of more superstitious days and beliefs. Or is it something more?

In any case, happy Friday the 13th!

  1. It’s something more. My understanding is that it was the day that the Knights Templar were wiped out by Phillip in 1307, which is where the “bad luck” tradition started. The Inquisition was typically very bad luck. Nobody expects the Spanish — er, French — Inquisition.

  2. All the best with that, Russell!

    I, however, have the unmitigated bad luck on having my non-member pain-in-the-hindquarters mother-in-law visiting today (day 9 of 14), so the only lucky I’ll be getting is bad lucky.

    Hmmm. There are tornadoes in the area today. Wonder if she’ll put her striped socks on and step outside…

  3. I forgot the smilie ;-).
    No one should take any of this seriously, btw. Just a little standard issue joshing at the mother-in-law’s expense.

    Yet, Wednesday can’t come soon enough.

  4. My 13th birthday was on a Friday the 13th.

    My 58th birthday (and 5 + 8 = 13!) will be on a Friday the 13th in the year 2013.

    I hope I live to see it!
