Tomorrow is Friday, the 13th. While personally, we here at Life, Explained are not the superstitious types, we prefer to deal in cold, hard, concrete, irrefutable facts, we know, without doubt, that prime numbers are lucky. Of course, we don’t expect you to take our word for it. Here are the results of a very scientific study all wrapped empirically, in a beautiful, yet brutally effective Pie Chart.
It does not take a genius to understand that the roots of the Friday the Thirteenth legend are steeped in the backward thinking of ancient man. For one thing, it is Friday, right, and that has to be good. And, the whole thirteenth thing seems to have something to do with mythology, perhaps, the twelve gods of Olympus, or the twelve signs of the Zodiac. It is plain to see that there is not much to worry about.
Of course, we are not taking any chances, if you need us tomorrow we will be in the basement, under the pool table, just ring the bell, or better yet knock on the wooden door.
