Does the number 13 freak you out too?

November 13, 2009 2:02pm CST
I bet nobody noticed that today is Friday the 13th (not October thank goodness!) I am not superstitious at all and I have no clue why Friday the 13th is such a scary day or why the number 13 is associated with bad luck. Here in the UK the allevators have no 13th floor and you won't see anything priced at £13 it's either £12.99 or £14. So what's with the number 13? Are you superstitious too about this?

Nope, not even the teensiest little bit. Although I do have a preference for even numbers as opposed to odd numbers. It's an "odd" little quirk of mine...

why no, they taste better! Actually, large things such as brownies can be eaten in ones. But small things such as m&ms need to be eaten in twos!

No, I'm really not superstitious at all. I haven't fully understood the story behind the whole Friday the 13th thing. I know that there's superstition behind it, but I was never really explained why. Besides, generally speaking, I'm not a superstitious person at all.

Its just a regular day. There is nothing different on this 13th days. I dont even think about it, i mean i know its 13 and people make jokes like oh today im not leaving my house, or stuff like that. I think its rather ridiculous to think it would affect you in some way.
