I was sitting here this morning, feeling good as a big project I designed is being moved from assembly to the shipping dock, thinking whats the big deal with people thinking the 13th being on a Friday is a bad thing? The day is going pretty good! No sooner than that, two co-workers (a brother & sister) get a call that their Grandmother had just passed away.
I'm not superstitious but that's just weird!

I try to not do stupid things but, I'm as guilty as the next guy of that. Friday the 13th is just another day to live, work and enjoy being alive. Today is someone's birthday. Today, many new babes will be born. Many will also pass on. Enjoy the time you have, there isn't as much left as you think.

About 2 hours into Fri (after the Red Wings loss to SJ) I heard the neighbor and his buddy coming on their crotch rockets... ziiiing..ziiiing.. ziiiing... CRUNCH ! I headed out to the coner with the cell phone and called 911. Long stoy short, one of them survived and the other was DOA when they got him to the hospital. Needless to say yesterday was a loooong day running on no sleep.
PORT HURON TWP. --Speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in a motorcycle crash Friday that killed a 24-year-old Armada man, police said.
A 25-year-old Port Huron Township man also involved in the accident was in Port Huron Hospital with injuries that are not believed life-threatening, according to information from the St. Clair County Sheriff Department.
Police said the men -- who were riding together on two Suzuki motorcycles -- were traveling west on Harrington Street in Port Huron Township about 2 a.m. when they ran into each other near Evergreen Lane. They were thrown from the bikes, police said.
Both were taken to Port Huron Hospital, where the Armada man was pronounced dead.
Investigators were at the accident scene Friday afternoon.
Deputy Steve Campau, the sheriff department's spokesman, said one question is how fast the men were traveling. The speed limit on the residential street is 25 mph.
Campau said the men had been out watching a Red Wings hockey game before the accident. Additional details, including the men's names, have not been released.
Blood samples taken from the men have been sent to a crime lab for toxicology tests, Campau said.
R.I.P. Blue. We've all gone through phases and done some pretty dumb sh!t, some things dumber than others. 24 is way too young to check out like that.

I remember losing a job on Friday the 13th. Other-than-that, Friday the 13th is just is just like any other day with known amount of problems. The only reason why people remember is because of the movies, others commenting about it, and it's repeated over and over again. However, people rarely remember other dates that are problematic, but they do remember the event.
