Any superstition is sad, and it only has power over you if YOU LET IT. Don't forget, the entirety of the Old and New Testaments were written by people. They cold have pulled any number out of a hat, so to speak.

Ahren, you had a streaker? Now there, is a throwback to another era LOL!

You are right Cori. You can pick a certain part of the bible and be "affected" by it. Otherwise, we are stumbling into Bible Code territory here.
Well, the odds are no skyscraper will have a 666th floor, but here is a "trick" question. Why is the number "13" unlucky?
 
Re: 666 by arty_farty on 6 June 2006 10:51pm
 
because thats the number of people present at the last supper. also it was on frid 13th that the church started killing the templar knights. in the 13 hundreds no less.

Well done Arty! That's correct, it was the Friday the 13th that the Knights Templar were massacred, mostly in France.

Nothing odd happened... just colored my hair a little bit darker (but still brownish), even though not as dark as its true color (uhn... I can't quite remember what it is anymore...lol).

Well, my boss's boss came for a visit at work today, but I doubt he's the AntiChrist.

Superstitions can be silly but interesting. I have a thing about the number 13. Black cats don't bother me at all (except for aggravating my allergies), and the only reason I don't walk under ladders is more because of safety than anything else. Still, 13 gives me the willies for some reason.

At work, I won't install 13 PCs. 12 or 14 of them. Never 13. When I'm crocheting, I hurry through the 13th row and never crochet a pattern based on 13 rows or clusters. I'm possessed by a strong desire to fake sick on Friday the 13th (never have, though). I also try my darnest not to start a vacation on the 13th of the month.
