Unlucky numbers!
« on: April 19, 2003, 02:21:40 AM »
Yeah, this sounds like a stupid conversation, but do any of you have an unlucky number?  

I know that apparently, Friday the 13th is meant to be an unlucky day, but my unlucky day?  Saturday the 14th.  Seriously.  I know I'm a weirdo, but that's my unlucky day, cos EVERYTHING GOES WRONG.

Oh, and before you ask, I postedf this to get my post count up to 15 ;D

My unlucky number is 6. 4 and 13 are lucky numbers for me. Of course, I made up the numbers a while back, but you can do that with any superstition and it'll still be effective. ;)

Nah, I'm really not superstitious when it comes to numbers, but as a christian I find the number 666 scary. However, 8 is my lucky number, cause I was born in 1980.

Why not the 1, 9 or 0?

That is such a coincidence!  8 is MY lucky number too!  Has been for years, but don't ask me why! ;D

I don't think I have an unlucky number, but I certainly have unlucky items. For example cars. I have decided that I have the touch of death with cars. My last car was a mess, it officially 1.5 working doors, a taped on plastic window, not one door lock on it worked 100% of the time, and the Service Engine Soon light went on so often I ignored it!!

I just recently recieved my dad's car. I had a repair done on the speed sensor last week. It came back this weekend. Now my car is two hours away from me.

ARGH!

Oh, and Mondays. Mondays are never good, I hate them.

Numbers, however, I am fine with!

No unlucky numbers here :-/

My lucky number is 3, but I never found it particularly luck :P

Can anyone tell me what's the deal with 666? I'm jewish, I don't get it :-[

In Revelations in the New Testament, 666 is identified as being the Devil's number (that's the short version). Hence 666 alwyays now being associated with Satan, evil, etc. It's also why people thought that the world would in 1999 because it's 666 upside down.

Don't ask me why, I didn't write it ;-) It does seem silly how we assign meaning to the oddest things, doesn't it?

I guess 8 can't be my lucky number since I hated MOE. I think kq6 is my favorite one. It used to be kq7, but after playing it so many time sit got boring. kq6 is so filled with intrigue and adventure, I like playing it over and over again.

I have no affinity with numbers either. 13 was the number of the day I was born, it was also the last day of my unemployed-ness. But then again, 16 was the first day of my employed-ness. So which should it be? 8)
