Why do people tend to be superstitious about numbers?
Thirteen is supposed to be evil either because there were thirteen people at the Last Supper or that many members in a witches coven.
And remember all the news about people who thought the year 2000 would be the second coming of Christ and the end of the world?
The dates 12/12/12 and 11/12/13 were supposed to be lucky days for a child to be born.
Personally, I'm not superstitious, but I do think number patterns are interesting.
For instance, just this week we had 5/11/15 and 51115 is nicely symmetrical.
And last week on 5/4/15 spacey fans greeted each other by saying, "May the fourth be with you." I love that kind of humor!
What other number patterns can you think of?
