That Ex-Bootneck has a roundup of all things concerning paraskevidekatriaphobia here.  There's a lotta stuff there I never knew.


  1. I've always had positive associations with Friday the 13th. See, ever since I've been working as a for-reals engineer, the 15th of the month has always been payday. And when the 15th falls on a Sunday, that means we get paid on the last work day before, so - Friday the 13th is payday!

  2. I also have a positive association with Friday the 13th.
    I graduated from the Class "A" Radar School at the U.S. Naval Schools Command on Treasure Island in SF in 1962.
    I also was promoted to E-3 on that date because I'd aced the test for promotion.

  3. I don't have any relationship with the day at all, or none that I remember, anyhoo. Both promotions and paydays would be nice, though!

  4. Well, I was going to comment yesterday that, like Craig & Uncle Skip, the number 13 has always been lucky for me also, but since I didn't win the 400 million Mega Millions yesterday, I'm not so sure, lol.

    1. I'm told ya gotta buy a ticket to win. So there's that.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
