“1. Fear of the number 13 is called triskaidekaphobia. Fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia. (Yikes-try pronouncing both words!) Did you know that many hotels don’t have a 13th floor? (Well, actually there IS a 13th floor but it isn’t named 13th). Some airplanes don’t have a row named 13 and many hospitals don’t have a room 13. There WAS an Apollo 13, a space mission that blasted into space on April 11, 1970. (It was launched at 13:13!) On April 13 (not a Friday), there was an explosion. Fortunately, the crew was able to come home safely.”(more)
