Yeah.... Personally, I think its kind of silly to name it just after that...

I mean.... I'm sure in different cultures there are other unlucky days and unlucky numbers... So.... Why don't they kind of group it together? Like an unlucky number fear? Or an unlucky day fear?

//@.@\\'... It might help reduce the list of phobias, that's for sure...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

I went to have an HIV test done yesterday.. Friday the 13th. I was number 13 in the queue at the clinic.

The test was negative... I no longer believe in superstition!! :)

Congrats Jenna!!!

I also think that the whole 13 thing is overrated and people's fears can cause some of the issues, imho :) I also study quantam physics, so of course I would feel this way, lol :)
