Gawd,today was friday the 13th! Lame shit. Amazingly in other countries,there were more accidents happening on this day. Why? I don't know,there were rating os 23million people out there who are paraskevidekatriaphobics. Fear of friday the 13th.
History lesson no.1:
699 years ago(Friday the 13th of October 1307) King Phillip the Fair of France and his puppet, Pope Clement V ordered the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, arrested and tortured because Phillip owed them a lot of money and the Knights Templar had a lot more that this crook wanted to get his hands on. Most of the Templars were tortured to death, including their leader, Jacques De Molay, but some escaped on 18 ships that sailed from the South of France with their treasure under the Templar battle flag, a black flag bearing a skull and two crossed bones. The sailed up the West Coast of Ireland and , eventually to the West coast of Scotland. There they split up and some stayed in Scotland while the rest sailed West. There's Templar graves in Nova Scotia dating back to the 1300s. Friday the 13th was only unlucky for Knights Templar.

History lesson no.2:
Many biblical events of negative import supposedly occurred on a Friday, including the ejection of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, the start of the Great Flood, and the crucifixion of Jesus.

Histort lesson no.3:
Salem witch trials in 1692. People who hung innocent women and accusing them of practising witch craft. They hung 19 women on friday,13th. In fit of anger,don't know one or all of them cursed this day to be unlucky. In the end? They still die what. Witch Hunters bound women's hands and feet together,throwing them into the water. If they float,they are witches. If they sink and drown,they're innocent. How RIDICULOUS is that?

Lame shit. Me,eliz and xinyi went to eat KFC and took photos and printed them.
