Friday the 13th!

Ah, superstition. It’s all so fun and so damn silly.

Why are humans this way?

I’d like to recommend a life-changing book to you: “The Demon-Haunted World: Science As A Candle In The Dark” by Carl Sagan. It will give you a gift that keeps on giving — a fully-active, self-loading “baloney detector.” It’ll teach you to think about what you think, to examine why you believe what you believe and if it’s a good idea to believe it, and best of all, it’ll teach you how to consider stuff that other people want you to believe.

Is Friday the 13th really unlucky? Do celebrity deaths always come in threes? Is that really Mary on that piece of toast? Will they really greet us as liberators?
