Another year bites the dust and a new one begins. It’s 2013. For those with triskaidekaphobia an ominous year indeed.

So is the thirteenth year of a century inherently unlucky? Does having the number thirteen on nearly everything in sight really push the bad luck, or does it wear it out? That is, does all the bad luck get used up early in the year leaving the poor number thirteen spent and trying to catch it’s breath?

God tells me that he doesn’t believe in luck, except for that which we make for ourselves. But then he also told me that the Mayans ended their calendar when they did because they knew this year was coming. I don’t really get that though, because, well, it’s not a thirteen on their calendar.
