Friday the Thirteenth - The Scandinavians believed that the number 13 was unlucky due to the mythological 12 demigods being joined by a 13th, an evil one, who brought misfortune upon humans. It was also said that Christ was crucified on Friday and the number of guests at the party of the Last Supper was 13, with the 13th guest being Judas, the traitor. Tradition also has it that the Flood in the Bible and the confusion at the Tower of Babel took place on Friday. Apparently Christians hate Fridays.

PS: Brokeback Mountain is sensational, beguiling, stupendous and many other synonyms for "fantastic."
Jake Gyllenhaal is the coolest (If we ignore Bubble Boy), though I've been saying that since I saw Donnie Darko.
