Assuming you are being serious - any ideas where the "dont start anything new on a Friday" thing came from?

(I bet it has something to do with the Bible)

Wednesday, September the 7th, 2005, and Friday, October the 10th, 2003.

Wonder if they'll notice.

I dont know about Friday the 13th in particular, but Friday's in general are dangerous on account of the amount of alcohol I consume! :D

Friday the 13th is unlucky because of what happened to the 13th disciple of Christ. He ate meat on a friday and died of trichinosis.

in greece the unlucky day is tuesday the 13th. because it was the day constantinooooople fell, as vividly portrayed in dracula.

One of the worst days of my life once was a Friday 13th. Unfortunately for my mother, her birthday is the 13th Dec so it does fall on a Friday now and again...

Last Friday was alright for me though, mind you. Uneventful :D
