Hantu Laut

Does Friday 13th freak you out?

Friday 13th is considered to be bad luck in Western superstition.

Friday has been considered an unlucky day at least since the 14th century's The Canterbury Tales and many other professions have regarded Friday as an unlucky day to undertake journeys, begin new projects or embark on anything new.Black Friday has been associated with stock market crashes and other disasters since the 1800s.

Do you know the fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia.

Do you know the manned mission to the moon Appollo 13 had a near tragedy, they aborted the lunar landing after an oxygen tank exploded crippling the service module.Despite limited power and great hardship the crew returned safely to earth.

Jesus was crucified on a Friday.

The North Korean's rocket launched at 7.39 a.m. on Friday 13th (yesterday) broke into four pieces humiliating the nation.

For our nation the racial riot on 13th May 1969 was the darkest chapter of our history.

Beware of what you wish on Friday 13th, sometimes, the devil can hear you and grant your wish.
