    I just checked the time… 3:29. how boring

  16. I just checked the time… When I did..
    It was 15:52…

    1+2+5+5=13….

    I was reading this, and thought “Haha, maybe this will happen to me?” And there we go… God damn it…

  17. Haha, I read the comment about how the time a person above viewed this page and how it added to 23. Checked the time, 8:30pm… in 24 hour time, it’s 2030… the universe isn’t even TRYING to be subtle

  18. It was 20:56 when I read this. Honestly. I laughed when I read the first 2 people commented…so I checked my time. Not even funny, World.

  19. You can laugh all you want but I am left handed so the addage that it is a lucky number is very true for me. On March 13 I moved in with my now husband. I needed a place to stay for a week as I had just turned 18. We are now having our 39th anniversary. At the time I did not know his last name or his age but it turned out he was 31 which is 13 years older and we have 3 adult children and all our lives we have been blessed with 13 being our lucky number! (He is right handed). The number 13 comes up about 13 times a day for us. So laugh and scoff all you want… maybe you just aren’t blessed!

    Oh my gosh. It was 10:48 when I read this. 1+4+8=13 o_O

    Oh my..after I read this I looked at the clock and it said the same thing.

  21. It cracks me up! It was 10:09 pm, millitary time 22:09 22-9=13 LOL now I’m gettin all worked up!

  22. Funny, in Italy the number 13 is the luckiest number, while 17 is the unlucky number. That proves there is not such a thing as a lucky or unlucky number per se’. Just pick a number and build a story around it. :-)

  24. Weird stuff. 13’s and 3’s come -up all the time…will happen for weeks in a row…someone will mention the number 13; the items at the store will be $33.13 or the change will be $1.33; etc. etc…. ALWAYS something good going to happen at some time in the future. I was born on February 13th……………..

    GREAT NUMBER!

  25. Have you ever stopped to really think about the term triskaidekaphobia or the idea that you think of 13 at all and the fact that it has this mystical theory behind it. Now, dont you think its possible it has some how created some sort of predisposion about the number for your imagination to play with. And the constant interaction or interest in it makes you more aware of it, all the time. IE: I watched the movie “the number 23” with Jim Carry and started seeing it around everywhere and a friend started teasing me about some other random number and was over obsessive about this random number, just to prove a point, and you know what we started seeing that random number all over the place. All im saying is rationalize it in your mind because your brain is a powerful tool, it often lets you see what you want to see, and interrestly enough this thought is no less existential than your own and I am some what of a consperacy theorist so I believe a lot of things are true that society doesnt want you to believe but all Im saying is that if you try to find reasoning for seeing the number thirteen you may just find that there is actually a logical reason for you to see it.
