Friday the 13th? on average the same as bad things on a Monday the 12th.

But impossible to prove as folk never log those

Mumbo jumbo is obviously still popular

"Bonjour, Sorry we are late for the walking tour!!!!!!"
"The walking tour is on Friday!"
"Yes, thats why we are here! Friday 13th!"
"Mais Non. Its is not Friday!"
"Oh! Sorry! We will come back tomorrow!"
"Mais Non-non! Thats Sunday! Today is SATURDAY!"

Also gos to show something about cruisers: We don't know what day it is

I actually missed my birthday 2 years ago - this is true - we sailed into Tonga from the east and the Customs man looked at my passport and said: You had no birthday.

He was right! It was the day missed going over the international date line!

So I am a bit younger than I look.

My wife Judi is a flight attendant and used to do the Los Angeles - Sydney flights regularly. She missed her birthday two years in a row. Said it was intentional, but even though she missed them, I wasn't allowed to so it didn't get me off the hook for presents...

Re: Friday 13th . . .

Weeeell.... beachcat racing today. HWMO and I won the first two races, then the third was cancelled due to a dust storm coming over. Figured we'd go for a sail anyway, so left boat on beach. Tide came up, boat sailed onto rocks. Both bows damaged, one needs fibreglass.

Bugger, I hate Friday 13th. I just knew I shouldn't have sailed today.

Re: Friday 13th . . .

Well. The only time we sat out the 13th then things did happen and in a big way too.

So, sail on the 13th, sit out the 14th?

Office hours and then a department meeting this morning. Would much rather have been crashing a beachcat.

Re: Friday 13th . . .

Friday 13th are one of the greatest days there is. I turned 13 on a Friday 13th. By the way it was in an April, which marks today .............

PS - I checked to be sure, no spears in my ass, which just improves the the day!

PSS - post 3600, such quality!
