Friday the 13th

Today marks the second of the two Friday the 13ths of 2001 (the first was in April). Beyond the movie series that won’t die, Friday the 13th has a long history. It’s a rough day for friggatriskaidekaphobes (for whom the number 13 isn’t always bad, just when it’s the date when the day is a Friday). And random fact: the phrase “twelve plus one” is an anagram for “eleven plus two.” Whoa.

So, for the superstitious (and the non-superstitious) among us, has anything bad ever happened to you on Friday the 13th? I can’t think of anything, though Monday the 13th has been known to be a bit rough. -ram

If you want to get technical and say that this Friday the 13th started last night at 12am, then I've had a pretty good one. Although, I'm paying for it now as I am very tired and sore. So it all works out against me in the end, right?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
