Just wanted to warn everyone so you can blame all the bad things that happen to you today on it being a Friday the 13th. smiling smiley

That must be why I'm wearing my "unlucky" underwear?

Ah, I just realised we have run out of salt and that we don't even own either a ladder nor a black cat!

I got to turn 40 on a Friday the 13th. I surely didn't want to get out of bed that day. But that had nothing to do with superstitions smiling smiley

I just got back from the dentist, spent two hours getting a temporary crown. $440, my share. That's enough bad luck for today.

I blame the Prussians...

Or the French...

Or maybe one-eyed kittens.

In spite of it being the 13th on a Friday, I went on my normal 20-mile road bike loop this morning and didn't get killed, hit by a car, lightening or other natural disaster. I thought about not going but it's just too beautiful of a day here in Newbury Park, CA...78-degrees with a very light southerly wind. Just perfect for cycling.

I used to be superstitious about this day, staying in and avoiding contact with the outside world, but as I've grown older it's easy to think otherwise. Now I just go about my normal routine, as it is...not stepping on cracks in the sidewalk, avoiding distended ladders, black cats, and once in a while I throw salt over my left shoulder just for good measure. Oh, is that being superstitious?

Uh, racer, "triskaidekaphobia" is "fear of the number 13", a superset of "Paraskevidekatriaphobia". My knowledge of Greek is vanishingly small, but "Paraskevi" appears to be "Friday".

"Triskaideka" (3 and 10) and "dekatria" (10 3) are variant ways of expressing 13.

But, that's just a guess.

Well, it wasn't any worse than any other day this week.

Actually, I have had pretty good luck on Friday the 13th. On the last Friday the 13th, May 2005; I found my Dual G5 2.0 PCI-X for a stinging deal ($1300). No reason to fear the number 13.

him carry me, and yet assure myself and others

his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
