Three "Friday The 13ths" on 2009.

Today is Thursday right? Been busy these past few days. Exams. Never-ending exams. And let's take a break on politics for a while. I always wanted to post this, but did anyone ever notice that there are two, yes, three Friday the 13ths this 2009? One is due tomorrow, Feb. 13, 2009 (I heard there's a Hollywood horror flick coming out on this day). The other one is due on Mar. 13, 2009. The last one is on Nov. 13, 2009. All Fridays. Scary huh? Who's up for 13th Friday Fest?

Well, I just found out while typing this post that a maximum of 3 Friday The 13ths can occur in a year. Now that's a neat fact. And that 3 occurrences are up for 2009.

Did you know that: The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia, a word derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή) (meaning Friday), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς) (meaning thirteen), attached to phobía (φοβία) (meaning fear). This is a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a simple phobia (fear) of the number thirteen, and is also known as friggatriskaidekaphobia. The term triskaidekaphobia was derived in 1911 and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953. - Wikipedia

The latest slasher film "Friday the 13th" opens tomorrow at cinemas near you.

For more neat facts about the occurrence of Friday the 13th, visit these website: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_the_13th and http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/emt668/EMAT6680.2002/Coffman/EMAT%206690/Friday.htm

Anyway, Friday The 13th's supposed to be filled with misfortune and shit right? I think that's not applicable in this modern age already. Blame the day for the Global Financial Crisis. Hey, to all English people out there, Resident Evil 5 would be released on Mar. 13, 2009.

Just a quick post. 'Till my next installment.
