Proof That Thirteen is Lucky!
« on: November 27, 2013, 01:59:15 PM »

- There were thirteen American colonies that successfully declared independence.
- Apollo 13 (unlucky something went wrong, incredibly lucky that they all lived)
- At 13:13, I was born ::)

Anyone else? :)

My self-esteem started to improve when I turned thirteen years old.

Not really on topic, but yesterday I had my mind blown and just had to share it.

Turns out that Sarah Winchester, of Winchester mystery house fame, was obsessed with the number thirteen. As in, all her drain covers have thirteen sections, her stained glass windows have thirteen spokes, her chandeliers have thirteen candle holders, and her coat racks all have thirteen hooks. Obviously, she was secretly a midnighter!

Okay, nothing apocalyptic happened this year.
Going to argue this even though I ended up agreeing: Nothing apocalyptic happened in 2012 either.

*waits for 2017 so that I can say Midnighters has existed for thirteen years*

That might be a while...I am just waiting for fall, so I can read Afterworlds and BoO.

I'm waiting for that, too. Next October will be happy-making, too! Maybe I'll revive the October Party...

I was born on 13rd day. I took sacrament also on 13rd day.

Maybe this day is successful for demons :D
