Here we are again. Friday the 13th. The day upon which people attribute the most spooky stuff than any other day (except Michael Jackson's birthday). Yes, so much so that hotels eliminate the thirteenth floor, thirteen people do not sit down to dinner, less drivers on the road, changing your name so you don't have thirteen letters in it, etc. Allegedly the Knights Templar were betrayed on this day.
However, in our modern times we equate this suspicious observance with a guy in a hockey mask who just hasn't found his place in the world. Jason is really those in my generation who haven't found a vocation that speaks to him. Truly. Or he went to the Richard Ramirez School for Homocidal Development.
At any rate, conspiracy theorists do mention that the Great Seal of the United States that has 13 arrows, 13 leaves, and 13 stripes on the shield, and that those of us in league with Satan really like that number. And apparently there is some sort of witchiness aspect to the number having to do with the number of Sabbats in a year and the frequency, but unless you're really a witch...
Perhaps there is nothing really wrong with the date or the number. Perhaps it is merely people's focus attaching to it which summons and warrants the phenonmenon. Who knows.
On a side note this blog is not very controversial. For the most part because I believe that anyone has the right to believe whatever they want without being hasseled. But I think I just might go off the deep end. Topics like Abortion, Stem Cell Research, Plague, Anarchy, and Fruit Loops, may very well become common topics. I started this blog in....(gotta check)...August. What makes this blog stand out?? What can I do to enthrall my readers further?? These are NOT the most important questions in my life right now. Mutherfuckin' right!!

Enjoy the day!!
