FRIDAY the 13th

A girl heard her mom yell her name from downstairs, so she got up and started to head down. As she got to the stairs, her mom pulled her into her room and said "I heard that, too."


Can you scare anyone with only two sentences? I didn't believed it at first until I found it out ..

There are few who noticed that today is Friday the 13th and I wouldn't have noticed as well until a friend of mine told me that I should be careful because today is FRIDAY THE 13th. Why should you be careful?

Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day in western superstition. It happened way back then during the 19th century and still live up its reputation until today. It occurs when the 13th day of the month falls at Friday. Practically back then, nobody even cared about this until Gioachino Rossini died at the same day, Friday 13th. It was documented in the first English referrence in Henry Sutherland Edwards' 1869 biography of Gioachino Rossini. Truth be told, he (Rossini) regarded friday and 13 both unlucky day and number. And it was amazing when he died at Friday the 13th on November

With this in statement, it had been clear that the number 13 became the unlucky number, and that Friday became the unlucky day. And this I can site an example as well.

Just this afternoon, I was going to meet up with some friends at SM NORTH. After I got ready and prepared, I left the house at about 1:30pm or 13:30H so I could meet up with my girl and accompany me at my wandering. After I rode the cab to her work place there had been a small commotion by the high way about 20 minutes after I had rode the cab. There, I saw a man lying on the ground; his hand lying flat by his side; clothes torn as if it was going to rip of; and his head all bent and breaked to the left. It got the whole traffic not moving and people are already passing here and by when our driver opened the windshield of his door and asked one bystander.

''What happened? Is he dead?''

''He sure is dead. He died all ready hours ago, about 1PM''

It was 12:50pm when the guy lost control of his bike

It took him only 1 minute to try to regain control of his bike

2 mins. to try to avoid an incoming vehicle

3 secs. to hit the wall

And 6 minutes and 57 seconds until he's dead.

And it was 1:00 pm or 1300H when he was declared dead.

So Friday the 13th. Believe it or not.

It happened before, will it happen again?

thanks for your comment.

well it doesn't that because it is friday 13th means it is inauspicious :) it would still depend on the person and his/her beliefs. And you can still have a productive day even if it is Friday 13th.

My car was unlucky where I parked. I walked outside to take my son to weight lighting class. To notice one side of the car covered in bird droppings. The car was black. The bird poo stood out. I had to take him to weight lifts before going to wash the car. Ugh!

I haven't personally had any problems with Friday 13th, other than yesterday when I wanted to use my telescope to look at the full moon, and the clouds decided to cover the sky and thwart me. Other than that though, just another day.

Friday is my lucky day
I was born on a Friday many many years ago
as for the number 13
I attach no importance to it or any other for that matter
I live my life not based on what they have said before but based on what I am saying at the moment

Friday 13th has never bothered me in the slightest. In fact, I rather liked this particular Friday 13th because it was the day that I retired from work.
