It is said that bad things happen in three.
Is it a coincidence, then, that there were three Friday the 13ths in 2009?
Here's an interesting fact (as much as a fact read on the internet can be):
"It's been estimated that [U.S] $800 or $900 million is lost in business on this day because people will not fly or do business they would normally do," Donald Dossey, founder of the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute told National Geographic.
Dossey recommends focusing on pleasant thoughts to get you through the day.
""They haven't lost their mind," Dossey said of phobics. "They've lost control of their mind."
So, are you going to spend another Friday the 13th in the grips of paraskavedekatriaphobia, or are you going to make it one hell of a Knights celebration?
Here's a way to "make your mark" on this date. According to ABC News: Friday the 13th is a lucky day for those in the market for a tattoo. In Silver Lake, Calif., tattoo artist Jeremy Swan will attempt to break the world record of 802 tattoos in 24 hours.
If you're willing to undergo a quick inking, the tattoo is only $20. Tattoos with the number "13" are $13 at the Michigan Tattoo Company.
Have fun out there, Knights.
