Friday the 13th

Posted by Indignus Vernula on July 13, 2007

What’s the fuzz about it? Really.  Last April 13th, people wished to stay indoors and have a “good time” when it’s Friday, and like their normal trend, Friday nights means party.  But it’s different when its the 13th, and it’s Friday. 

So what’s all about it?

BBC reported that,

“No one’s quite sure where the myth of Friday 13th comes from. Some people think that it could be because Jesus was crucified on a Friday and there were 13 people at the Last Supper. But wherever the idea comes from, you shouldn’t worry – experts reckon that luck is all down to how positive you feel about life.”

At least they don’t need to worry about any traffic situations.

They also reported that in 2004, 1.3 million British were staying indoors just to avoid the bad luck. Taking leave from work just to stay home and avoid the bad luck, hmmm I should try that tomorrow. But yeah, I don’t believe in Friday the 13th.

Perhaps I should try my luck. Yes, tomorrow. I’ll call in sick tomorrow and then go bungee jumping without a safety cord… freaky! However, you won’t believe that people really try on their luck just to prove that the belief is rubbish. Pfffft!  I really don’t believe in that.

No, I won’t be calling in sick tomorrow because it’s my day-off.  Another thing is that I have some more serious things to attend.  And just to prove that it is really crap, I’m going out tomorrow.

Meanwhile, I’ll just wait for the new statistics.😀

    4) Then meron po dyan na “Date and Time” settings. Sa “Times in the weblog should differ by:” na field, iinput nyo po ung timezone nyo po. Sa hawaii is GMT-10 di po ba? so “-10” po lagay nyo.
    5) Then click “Update options”.
