I think there is really only something to it...if a person believes there is.

The power of the mind and belief systems can be very powerful.

I don't think you are a stick in the mud. You just believe...how you believe.

This day always fills me with dread, not because its Friday 13th (I was born on the thirteenth of a month), but because of tomorrow......

Saturday 14th !

Always a bad day for me ......seriously


You have got me curious...why is Saturday the 14th a bad day for you?



I have no idea, Its just I have found in the past that Saturday 14th can be a bad day, I have to go to work tomorrow, so that already validates my previous experience in part lol


Oh, and lest we forget the solar activity arriving tomorrow morning (UK time) too, looks like Earth's magnetic field is going to have a bad day too


Obviously, NOT in any catastrophic way, just might get a little cranky !

I originally had my 2nd kidney surgery scheduled for today. I'm not sure if I can call the delay good or bad luck. Good because I know how f-ing bad it's going to hurt so a few extra heal days can't hurt. Bad because I probably need it...the sooner the better.....Lets just call this an unlucky day for me. The suspense sucks.

I understand that a black cat crossing your path is considered unlucky in the US?,here in the UK the opposite is the case.


So in UK, it's unluck for the cat if you cross it path
Wierd


Well, it's just another day with a random number...

Why would I be scared?

Friday the 13th always comes and goes.

I'm having a great day, I even managed to have an afternoon nap.

Now I have a case of beer in the fridge. Maybe I should barricade my doors and windows and hide in a closet with a shotgun waiting for the zombie apocalypse?

I have had major surgery before...and I know what you mean...you just want to get it over with!

I wish for you a very, very successful surgery...you are in my prayers.

For me Friday the 13th is just another day...anything can happen.

Yes...Friday the 13th comes and goes. I just wonder why so many people have grown up with this silly superstition.

Hey you...pass one of those cold beverages my way!....


Your avatar....is that a picture of you?

What is the history of (Friday the 13)? How did this superstition begin? I found a good article in National Geographic that explains it all.

news.nationalgeographic.com...

My attitude on (Friday the 13th) has always been "today is my lucky day!" and I just go about my business . I have a sense of humor about it.

How do you all feel about (Friday the 13th)? Were you raised to be superstitious?


I have never in all my life heard of businesses losing business or people not leaving their homes on Friday the 13th. I think it is all a bunch of superstitious nonsense by ignorant feeble minded people. There is no such thing as luck. I wasn't raised to be superstitious, unless of course you count the Christianity, which in some aspects I guess is. LOL

I wasn't scared, however I've always believed in the manifestations that our minds build being psychologicaly predisposed to the belief in Friday the 13 th.

For instance.

Today, my compadre and I began our long trip home from being in Houston on training. We are headed toward a small town in western Texas. We chose to make a weekend of it in Llano which is about halfway.

On the way to Houston we spotted a 15 foot tall squirrel statue that we had to take a picture of. For the entire week, we referred to it as the "Thunder Squirrel". We had every intention of stopping on the way back.

We left somewhat early due to it being rainy, which it was all week. We passed three vehicular rollovers on the way. Most of the way, we were figure-eighting this rock slab hauling flat-bed. We passed him just before La Grange, and assumed we would never see him again as the rain had let up and we could book now.

Then we saw the "Thunder Squirrel". We pulled over to take advantage of the photo op. My compadre went over to within ten feet of the highway to take the photo. Just at that moment, the rock hauler passed and had a blow-out. It was louder than anything I have ever heard. I thought my friend was dead.

Fortunately it was the inside tire that exploded and not the outside. The driver kept control and nobody was injured. The only loss was two, maybe three pair of undergarments. It turned out to be our lucky day, though at least 4 other vehicles on a 280 mile stretch weren't as fortunate.

Take from it what you will, but I'm still not scared. One cannot live in fear.
