    There are differing opinions concerning the legend, nor has there ever been corroborating evidence for or against it.

    I consider the number 13 to be lucky, because it's the number of Christ and the disciples. Plus, who doesn't love Friday?
    Oh I do know its a world wide phenomenom...this was just what I had heard to be the modern reason.

    I was always under the impression they were together...I'll have to go and look it up again!!

    Not any bad luck here, and it's safely Saturday 14th here already.

    Even that was otherwise a hard day. I spent over 10hrs with my studies. I don't normally study that long at a time. (Some kind of bad luck?)

    On Friday October 13, 1307, the pope of Rome along with the King of France, deployed a secret death warrant against the Kights Templar.

    They were tortured and executed as heretics.

    Jacques DeMolay, their Grand Master was arrested and tortured and crucified before he was killed.

    And before Jacques DeMolay died, he caursed both the pope and the King of Frnce and with in a year both had died a painful death.
