I thought this was about the movies when I saw the link. I thought they meant there was a story about them. I didn`t realize that yesterday was Friday the 13th. It`s been a lazy summer so far. lol

Judas was the 12th diciple, but with Jesus there, it made it a party of 13 (which is almost a better excuse for 13 NOT to be a bad number). Some people think Jesus died on a Friday but he was actually only arrested on a Friday. It was several days before he was then crucified. So even the idea that he rose on a Sunday (which is only 2 days and not 3 days after friday anyway)is hogwash.
There is also more to the Templar story - When the Grandmaster was being burned at the stake for herecy, he swore that both the king of France AND the Pope (who both conspired against the Templars) would die within a year...they did.

So why is she reading out of the "DRAGONOLOGY" book then...?

I liked the stories. I`m strangely supersticious about friday 13th, but nothing bad has ever happened to me on one.

Yeah, Judas wasn`t the thirteenth disciple. And the main story I`ve heard is that Jesus died on a Friday and there were 13 people at the last supper.

Early churches used the number 13 to instill fear and convert people into Christianity. There are 13 lunar months, each 28 days in length, in each full year rotation around the sun. Pagan "non-christian" calendars have 13 months. Fridays are associated with Sabbats, also pagan but totally not anything to fear. In a lunar year with 13 months, each date falls on the same day ex: if you were born on Friday the 13th, your birthday would always fall on a Friday.

The only tie to Friday the 13th being evil that I`ve ever heard was regarding the Knights Templar. I don`t think they got it right by saying there`s no real tie to any particular event.

I enjoyed the story of the gods, that`s very funny, they have omnipotence, infinite power, and what do they do to amuse themselves? Throw objects at one of their own and watch them bounce off of him. XD

This was actually very nicely made. Although I only kn ew the one regarding the Knight`s Templar.

And it was then that Fancylad spoke to his people, "Might all my people live in peace, and might all spammers burn and be exiled from my lands!"

That was actually really interesting. I love how she was looking at one of those Dragonology books though. :-P

P.S. Saying "first" makes you look like a moron. Don`t do it, it`s stupid.
