13 Friday the 13’s
1.Triskaidekaphobia. It is the fear of the number 13, not necessarily Friday the 13th.
2. There is only one Friday the 13th in calendar year 2016.
3. 13 is commonly known for superstitious beliefs about it being unlucky. Originally it was a holy number but somewhere along the way it was hijacked and portrayed as unlucky.
4. Friday, July 13, 1923, the Hollywood sign was dedicated in the Hollywood Hills. It originally said Hollywoodland, but the "land" part was dropped in 1949.
5. Steve Buscemi was born on Friday, December 13, 1957.Without him, try imagining "The Big Lebowski", "Reservoir Dogs", "Fargo", "Boardwalk Empire" or even a recent Snickers commercial with Steve as Jan Brady. Scary are the thoughts of his not being involved in those projects.
6. Black Sabbath released their first album on Friday, February 13, 1970.
7. The United States adopted its first equal employment act on Friday October 13, 1967. President Lyndon Johnson signed an executive order saying the government can't discriminate in hiring practices based on gender.

10. On Friday, April the 13th, 2029 an asteroid will fly close to Earth. When 99942 Apophis was discovered in 2004, it was thought to have a small chance of colliding with Earth. But you can rest easy because since then, scientists have revised their findings which show that there is absolutely no risk of the asteroid impacting the Earth or the Moon.
11. The 13th letter of the alphabet is M. Many moons ago Hell's Angels bikers would sew a 13 on their leather jacket as M stood for Marijuana and the M marker meant they smoked.
12. Now, M is for Mexican Mafia. Any real Mexican gang that lives in Southern California starting from Bakersfield and down all the way to San Diego should be affiliated with 13. But gang activity might eventually land them in the Walla Walla penitentiary...
13. ..whose address is 1313 N. 13th Ave in Walla Walla, Washington
I am freaking out right now.
