13 employees on 13 floor in Alberta wins 49 millions Lucky for some unlucky for some...
13 means 13,its just a number.For someone ifsomething bad happens on 13th of the month then 13 will be blamed for being unlucky.But if someone win 13 million dollars on the 13th day of a month then what would you call it.
No, I do not believe in being lucky or unlucky.If I have to believe in luck in that case I have to put all the control of my life in
the hand invisible power, which will just weaken my believe.Its our mind which give 13 a bad color.Thank you for bringing up this
Unlucky for me ..... I did not win this Jackpot... Damn!!!
13 is spooked! - sometimes good spooked ... mostly bad spooked!
I would feel lucky if I won just one million on any floor of any day of any month;o)Heck, one hundred would make me happy!

I was born on the 13th
and my hubbys birthday is the same as mine ,same month, 13th
I like 13
and Im hoping to find a new home that will be selling cheap because it has No 13 on the letterbox
My son was born Friday 13th, a very lucky day for me. Good luck with finding a home No 13.
This is one of those things that just gets under your skin. I know that logically the number 13 has no power but that doesn't stop me from thinking about it. I don't do anything different on Friday the 13th but having this hammered into me from the beginning still makes 13 a special number.
Just had to come back because I noticed I had published Hub number 13...wooooooohoooo.
No Im not suspicious( grins)
I once lived in a house that had #13 as the address - and that's the house I was living in when I had my beautiful baby daughter. That's pretty much the only thing the number reminds me of. I'm not the least bit superstitious. (Oh - and then there was an old kids' movie, "Thirteen Ghosts".)
uuhh...why not diverse is what people are...people may be so..
I love the number 13!! I was married on the 13th my hubby was born on the 13th.
The number 13 has always been a lucky number for me as I was born on November 13th!!! So I have had my share of friday the 13th's hehe, always were my best birthdays!!
Did you know that 13 and unlucky number is a myth??
It really proves the following sentence "If you keep telling the same big lie over and over again, eventually it WILL become truth"
There is not enough space to fill all the examples throughout history..heck even today of the lies that are/were repeated over and over again..to become "truth"
So the 60.000 dollar question is,,, were does this nr 13 originate from??
Thanks for the link...
" Friday the 13th has been considered an unlucky day since the 1800s, as a combination between an unlucky day, Friday, and the number 13."
It does not explain the reason WHY people in our western society consider 13 and friday the 13th an unlucky, superstitious number.
The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon (Latin: Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Solomonici), commonly known as the Knights Templar or the Order of the Temple (French: Ordre du Temple or Templiers), were among the most famous of the Western Christian military orders. The organization existed for approximately two centuries in the Middle Ages.
Officially endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church around 1129, the Order became a favoured charity throughout Christendom, and grew rapidly in membership and power. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades. Non-combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom, innovating financial techniques that were an early form of banking, and building many fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land.
The Templars' existence was tied closely to the Crusades; when the Holy Land was lost, support for the Order faded. Rumours about the Templars' secret initiation ceremony created mistrust, and King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Order, took advantage of the situation. In 1307, many of the Order's members in France were arrested, tortured into giving false confessions, and then burned at the stake. Under pressure from King Philip, Pope Clement V disbanded the Order in 1312. The abrupt disappearance of a major part of the European infrastructure gave rise to speculation and legends, which have kept the "Templar" name alive into the modern day.
Friday the 13th superstitions originated in a Norse myth about twelve gods having a feast in Valhalla. The mischievous Loki crashed the party as an uninvited 13th guest and arranged for Hod, the blind god of darkness, to shoot Baldur, the god of joy and gladness, with a mistletoe-tipped arrow. Baldur was killed and the Earth was plunged into darkness and mourning as a result.
'Friday' was named after Frigg (or Frigga),
the Norse goddess of marriage.
#13 doesn't bother me it is merely a number, so I would have to say good for them and it is lucky that they won the lottery.
I was born on the 13th and so was my hubby, so if we are unlucky ,at least we get to be it 'together' lol..
Seriously though I dont beleive that events make numbers or people or places unlucky..and anything that suggests fear is definately not taking root in my heart.
What do I think about #13? I think it can be lucky or unlucky, depending on what you believe. It, like everything else in life only carries a special symbolism if you think it does.
Personally, if I was one of those 13 people on the 13th floor, I'd be thinking 13 was a lucky number, for sure! In fact, I may try to adopt the number and see if it works for me.
I don't see 13 as such a bad number since some fear this Friday the 13th. I don't care, I have a black cat on my lap right now. But when dealing with kids who just turned 13...ehhh...you get the picture.
I thought it was taboo to have a 13th floor in a high building. they usually skip it for the 14th. LOL
One of my sisters was born on the 13th. We always teased her that it was a Friday, lol. In fact, it was Thursday, which could be almost as bad, if you believe the old rhyme "Thursday's Child has far to go."
I think it comes after 12 and before 14. Not much more to it, in my opinion.
13 is just like a human being, nothing more and nothing less.
Just like YOU !
13 is a lucky number for me and my husband. We became boyfriend-girlfriend on a 13th, and we got married on a 13th. We celebrate the 13th day of each month by having a special dinner date, just the two of us. Oh, he was also born on a 13th.

Quick question: Do you avoid major decisions on Friday the 13th?
by Annette Thomas 8 years ago
Ha! Last night, hubby said, "You won't believe what I found today." "What?", I replied in anticipation. He hesititated and walked to the kitchen slowly, just enough to make me anxious. So what's the deal here? He put his glasses...
