There are women who cling to it with the hopeless passion of a Red Sox fan watching a lead evaporate in the ninth.

Numbers are just numbers, they are not lucky or unlucky.

Hi No Time--I think one of the reasons the number 13 is considered unlucky is that there were 13 people at the Last Supper (12 Apostles and Jesus=13) and it was on a Friday that Jesus was betrayed by Judas (if I am remembering my Cathecism correctly) so 13 is "unlucky" and Friday the 13 is very unlucky--but only if you believe in those sorts of things. It's superstition. Like fearing black cats or saying "seven years bad luck" if you break a mirror.

In Mexico, it's TUESDAY the 13ths that are unlucky. No idea why.

But today is Friday the 13th, and I have a dentist appointment. *thunder crash*

If you come back with a mouth full of blood and several teeth missing, don't skimp on the details

I have never heard of that. (As you all Might recall, I am from Mexico.)

Does the fact that the #29 is 2 greater than #27 answer the question?

I say,(do not take to heart what I say) that 27 is a very special number. Is is composed of 15 and 12, it is the result of three to the 3rd power, and it is my birthday (on May, if you will)

I dunno, a Spanish textbook told me that once, and a friend living in Mexico confirmed it.
