Friday The 13th!
Yes, it’s true, another Friday the 13th is here! This Unlucky day has reeked havoc sometimes for good, I mean Al Capone was sentenced on Friday the 13th! But, sadly news like this is not always what happens. My Fox New York has some interesting facts about this horrifying day! Check them out below.
- July 1987: An F4 tornado ripped through Edmonton, Alberta, killing 27 people and injuring at least 300.
- March 1964: The “Good Friday” earthquake wasn’t actually so good. It remains the largest earthquake in North American history, killing 131 people near Prince William Sound.
- Tupac Shakurwas shot and killed in Las Vegas on a Friday the 13th.
- Al Caponewas sentenced to prison on a Friday the 13th.
- Many buildings don’t count their 13th floors. You’ll see on their elevators that the numbers skip from 12 to 14. (OK, we all know what floor we are on when we’re on the 14th…Please tell me you are not the one that thinks they actually skip an entire floor in order to not have an unlucky 13th floor.)
- Killers Charles Manson, Saddam Hussein, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Theodore Bundy, and Jack The Ripper each have 13 letters in their names.
