It's Friday the 13th. Any bad luck ?

Postby Clyde Donovan » Fri Apr 13, 2007 4:00 pm

It seems that the only thing that happends to me on Friday the 13th is i get hammered and watch the Friday the 13th Movies. Has anything bad ever happend to anybody on this So-called unlucky day?

I'll let you know Monday. The IT guy at work is upgrading the operating system on my computer right now. So if I come in on Monday and sh*t's all f*cked up, I can blame Friday the 13th.

Definetly bad luck today. I'm not sure if anyone here is a Nine Inch Nails fan, but there's a meet-up in LA at 7pm tonight and I won't be able to go :(

Nah, my birthday fell on a Friday the 13th last year. It was just another day, no matter how you look at it. Besides, how can a Friday possibly be considered the worst day of the week? :roll:

Here is some info on the origin of the idea that Friday the 13th is unlucky. LOL..I thought KTS would already know about this sh*t..LOL

http://www.astrologycom.com/friday13.html

I don't consider the day unlucky..Not just because of my beliefs, but also because some pretty good things have happend to me on Friday the 13th in the past. Hell, today, my friend called me up and invited me to go do something, and I was thinking I had nothing to do on my day off.


But I do like to watch the Friday the 13th movies on Friday the 13.

Yeah, I do.

~~~~~~~~

The thing is, good and bad luck work based on whether or not you believe in them, and how that belief affects your decisions. If you're preoccupied with bad luck, for example on a day like today, naturally it's going to distract you from paying attention to what you're doing as you go about your business. This can make you more accident prone, more likely to make mistakes, and cause you to focus more on the bad things that happen to you, so it's essentially a self-fulfilling prophecy. The same goes for good luck. If you think you're going to have good luck, you're going to be more confident, and more likely to watch what you're doing.

Besides, screw early Christian superstitions. Friday's the day everyone gets off of work / school, so it can't be all that bad.

I just found out today that my boyfriend's landlord discovered he was housing a six-week-old puppy (that he rescued the day before it was to be put to sleep, I might add) in his apartment, so now we're scrambling to find it a temporary home until he moves into a house this summer. :(

Then again, it all happened yesterday, so that doesn't really count. But I'm going drinking later. You never know what can happen when there's alcohol involved.

Did they ever explain how people were able to literally sprint away from Jason and yet a few frames later he would be in front of them?

I don't know..Does anything about Jason make sense..I mean ( and I haven't seen all the Friday the 13th movies, it isn't my favorite horror series) was it ever really explained why he is able to keep coming back from the dead.

Because you can't kill him in the first place.

Yeah, that is about it, which is why I only really like the first and second Friday the 13th..But I still think it is cool that people on the horror board are acting like it is a holiday..Hey, it's fun.
