Lemming Tracks: Triskaidekaphobia and a Rambling Lemming

There's another Friday the 13th coming this year, in July:
  • That's six months from now
  • There are two numbers in "13"
    • "1" and "3"
  • Three multiplied by two is six
You see?! IT ALL FITS TOGETHER!!!

Or, not. The Lemming's been over sounding crazy on the Internet, and how to avoid it, before:On the other hand, the Lemming had an unusually hard time coming up with a topic for today's earlier post ("Oh, Boy! The Avengers are Back - Almost "), which a sufficiently triskaidekaphobic person might think was the result of Friday the 13th already being here, over in Asia, when the Lemming was still rummaging around for something nifty.

"Triskaidekaphobia?" That's a seven-syllable word meaning "a morbid fear of the number 13." (Princeton's WordNet) Oddly enough, seven is a 'lucky' number. ("Is this your lucky number? Seventy-seven things you need to know about 07," Independent.co.uk (December 31, 2006)) Which probably explains the title of "Lucky Number Slevin" (2006).

Brigid,

Ri-i-ight! Let's see - there must be some sort of numerological silliness I can do with that: but at the moment, I've got nothing.

Thanks!

Actually, some of yesterday's news may be here. Or maybe last week's.
The software and science stuff might still be interesting, though. Or not.
The Lemming thinks it's interesting: Your experience may vary.
