Another Friday the 13th has arrived, the third and last one this year. Did you know that exactly 13 weeks ago was a Friday, April 13? And that exactly 13 weeks before that was a Friday, January 13? The fact is that any leap year starting with a Sunday will have a Friday the 13th in January, April and July.
Three Friday the 13ths also happen in any non-leap year that starts on a Thursday. In that case, the Friday the 13ths come in February, March and November.
The year 2009 was the last time we had three non-leap-year Friday the 13ths. The next time will be the year 2015. Notice each of those years is three years before and after 2012.
To celebrate this date, here is a quiz on basic Friday the 13th trivia followed by some Friday the 13th and black cat humor. Best of luck on the quiz (just click the button to start), and beware of black cats today!

This problem can be solved by pre-school children in 5-10 minutes. By programmers in one hour. By people with a higher education… Well, check it out yourself and post the answer in the comments when you have solved it. Now, those who want to solve it, do not cheat to see if anyone has posted the answer. But then, posting just the answer does not explain the logic here.
This took me just few minutes, so I guess I have a pre-school mentality….
Here is your chance to answer Rush Limbaugh’s question in the cartoon below. Rush says, “I said what I thought, then I apologized when I started losing advertisers.” He then asks, “What does that make me?”
Feel free tell Rush exactly what you think. Venting is good for the soul.
A few days ago, Santorum compared Obama to Hitler, but in fact it is Santorum who has a few political ideals shockingly similar to Hitler’s. Don’t believe me? Take this 50/50 round and see if you can figure out who said what. I was very amazed, and actually rather frightened, both by the statements and the answers.
