Amusing facts about Friday the 13th.

Man created time, days of the week to work and to take rest. Now the same man is afraid of what he has created. Man is paranoid.

Look at how he dreads whenever the date 13th falls on a Friday! Man is so psychotic that he doesn't do the following:
* Hospitals have no rooms that are numbered 13.
*High rise buildings don't have floor #13
* Invites a stranger as the 14th guest if the guest roll has only 13 people.

There may be more but I know only this many.

Is there a reason to be so superstitious? Can it be said Bible is the cause? The 13th guest said to have betrayed Jesus at the last supper.

From then on, there are several incidents that said to have taken place on a Friday the 13th.
* Fidel Castro was born on Friday, Aug. 13, and Butch Cassidy, notorious American train and bank robber, was also born on Friday, April 13.
* The British Navy ship named Friday the 13th left the shores for the first time on a Friday the 13th, and was never heard from again.

Now, a famous joke cracked by Mark Twain.
When he was asked to leave a dinner party because he was the 13th man, he told this: "May they have food only for 12 persons".
