    "LEGEND HAS IT: If 13 people sit down to dinner together, all will die within the year. The Turks so disliked the number 13 that it was practically expunged from their vocabulary (Brewer, 1894). Many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue. Many buildings don't have a 13th floor. If you have 13 letters in your name, you will have the devil's luck (Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy and Albert De Salvo all have 13 letters in their names). There are 13 witches in a coven."

    Me? I think it's a load of supersitious old claptra... zizzzzzzzz - BANG -oww - st

    Call me daft - [ some do ], but when building server farms in the past I have always missed '13' out and go straight to 14.
    Also in our main 2 computer rooms there is no number '13' computer...

    I came in this morning to an IT suite with keybords and mice 'mysteriously' moved to other computers.
    Also some &*%@ had stuck labels on three of the monitors saying "do not use" and lets just say they didn't come off in one fluid movement.
