Friday the 13th is supposed to be the unluckiest day of all.

It was invented by this weird dude, Gioachino Rossini in the 1800s.


Basically, he is Italian and all Italians at the time thought that Friday was the unluckiest day (that shits cray) and 13 was the unluckiest number. Then the dude dropped dead on Friday the 13th and BOOM.
Nowadays, Italians actually consider Friday the 17th to be the unluckiest day, and consider the 13th to be a lucky number.

You know who else died on Friday the 13th?
Julia Childs and Tupak. That seems more unlucky to this gal.


So basically, this is a bunch of crazy talk. 

However, the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute (yes, this is a real thing) says that 17-21 million people in the US are PARALYZED by fear on Friday the 13th. So much so that they avoid things like getting on planes and "getting out of bed". 


Hmmmm. They also estimate that approximately $900 million is lost in business on this day.

In conclusion, unless you see this guy

you'll probably make it through the day.
