I thought it was because that's the day the Knights Templars were arrested by the King of France.

It's because human beings by and large still haven't grasped the concept of coincidence. And religion doesn't help.

I got two Greenlights today, including my first on the Main page! But I was born on Friday the 13th, so I actually have superpowers today.

I was stung in the throat by a hornet yesterday, when i woke up this morning I look a bit like this guy. Doesn't feel like my lucky day at all.visboo.com

Both my dad and his mom were born on a Friday the 13th. He is one the luckiest guys I know. He is always winninf contests and won't leave a casino without at least doubling his money, so the day being unlucky is bull.

WRONG!

You were unlucky yesterday when you got stung. And get some Benadryl for farks sake.

Friday the 13th has come, but it has not yet passed.  Things may not turn out as positive as you believe, Subby.
 
2013-09-13 10:23:44 AM  
I have never thought of Friday the 13th as bad. It's a FRIDAY!
Now a Monday the 13th is like double unlucky.  That is the day to stay home and lock the door.

The hornet doesn't feel so damn good about it, either.

You must have done something to piss it off.  As a rule, wasps, bees and hornets need some sort of provocation to sting.

yeah, but the article dismissed that notion without any support.  i guess he needed more words and didn't want to write about the templars.

/ as umberto echo said, and i paraphrase, you will meet people who are insane, and you will know they are insane because, inevitably, they will bring up the templars.

Probably did.  What's it like, being a puffed-up walking can of Raid?

If that's what it take to kill 'em, I say live and let live. Lucky for me, I live somewhere else.

When I walked into work this morning, I discovered that two of my co-workers had precariously rigged a ladder over the doorway. They gleefully announced that I was now doomed because I walked under a ladder on Friday the 13th.

It's really a shame I don't have a herd of black cats at my beck and call.

He also happens to be correct.

Ponder this, before mankind invented numbers, calendars (specifically Gregorian), and superstition, was there anything at all to make this solar rotation particularly hazardous (I'd say unlucky, but luck itself is a superstition) with any kind of reliability sufficient to categorize it differently than any other?

I wasn't born on a Friday the 13th, but I seem to do really well on Fri. 13ths too.

I got run over by a jeep on a friday the 13th, so I'm getting a real kick out of this thread.

My wife's brother, who was a police officer, was shot and killed in the line of duty on Friday the 13th. Usually, when you lose a loved one, the pain will resurface on certain anniversaries like their birthday, the day they died, holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving, and such.  Now the same thing happens on every Friday the 13th, no matter what time of year.  :(
