No Triskaidekaphobia Here!

Fear of the number 13 has purportedly been around since ancient times and has been attributed to various sources, from the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi, to Christian tradition, to the Norse Vikings, as well as to the early Persians.  However, the number 13 is considered lucky by today’s Birthday Boy, and is his favorite number.

  1. Happy birthday, Wayne.

    I heard that Reichwhiners are afraid of 13 because it’s one more than they can count with their pants and shoes on. (Think about it.)

  2. I’ve loved the word ‘triskaidekaphobia’ ever since, back in my ‘horse insurance’ days, I insured a horse named Triskaidekaphobia. On the other hand, I also insured a horse named ‘Flatulence’ – when I talked to his owner, he said that the horse was already named that when he bought it; I asked him if he was planning to change the name, but he said he thought he’d keep the name just for the fun of it.

    • So do I. I was on an island in the Pacific with lots of foxes running around.

      Okay, the island was Shemya AFB and it was the next-to-last island in the Aleutian islands located between the Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea, and the foxes were mangy Blue Foxes that yowled all night long.

      And I was probably drunk. 🙂
