Its mind over matter. So many people have this errational fear of 13. When there is a 13th floor, appearently strange things happen. that is because subconsiously we make them happen. It is in how we interperate and let things affect us.

okay im just nitpicking here but even if you dont count a fourth floor or 13th floor its still there so its still unlucky or whatever right? and also bit info i randomly picked up not every friday the 13th is unlucky. its only when its friday the 13th in June its unlucky. im not sure why but i read it years ago and its stuck in my mind as my birthday is june!! so if anyone knows anything more about this ib interested to know!! p.s my name has 14 letters in it!!

the number 13 is a bad luck number if you want it to be, so much hype about Friday the 13th and on the last one we had i didn't even know it was a 13th and nothing even happened, you will get bad luck come your way if you believe in it but then you can pick out anything of the day and say that's because of Friday the 13th ....

i wonder if that would stand in court ...... it was Friday the 13th and it wasnt me that killed that man it was the little devil inside me

In "western" socities such as the UK, Europe, Australia and Northern America I seriously doubt it.

But...I've heard rumors about it being the case in China and Japan...of how they avoid the whole 13th floor thing.

Its nothing more than superstitious nonsense.


Edit: HOW they avoid it...I'm not sure...I think they simply don't number that particular floor.
Well, I'm not supersticious and where I work there IS a thirteenth floor. In the past four years three employees have died who worked on that floor. Two had a heart attack and one young man died from the H1N1 virus just after Christmas last year. Coincidence? It kind of makes one think.

I didn't know about the elevator thing, but I've noticed that 13 sometimes gets skipped on house numbers.

I've heard theres no 13th floor inside the elevators, that when people build the elevators, they skip the 13th floor because of superstition or something.

true?

Three places we do not go.

We do not go to Ravenholm. We do not got to the Mogollon Rim. We do not got to the 13th floor.  :no:

Many old buildings in the USA have this .
Superstition .I dont think it's bothered with in new modern constructions.

I've never seen the omission of a 4th floor in Japan however,and the number 13,as far as I know,doesn't have the same meaning to them.

The numbers 4 and 7,both contain the kanji shi,for death,so there are alternate words for both numbers.

The Japanese fear of the number four is obvious...where does "thirteen" come from? <img src="http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":huh:" border="0" alt="huh.gif" />

Friday the 13th is when the Knights Templar were wiped out.
