2012 Has 3 Friday The 13ths: Omen Of End Of The World?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A University of Delaware professor said this year is unique for having three Friday the 13ths, each spaced exactly 13 weeks apart."


Tom Fernsler, a math professor said most years have two Friday the 13ths, but this is no ordinary year. As everybody who hasn`t been living in a cave the last few years knows, 2012 is the last year in the Maya calendar, and perhaps the last year in human history.


We survived January Friday 13, 2012, but will most of us survive Dec 21, 2012? As the fateful day in December approaches, be prepared for anything. Even if the Earth doesn`t spiral out of control and the stars don`t fall from the skies, folks who believe in the Maya prophecies might act irrationally as Dec, 21 draws near.

Three Friday the 13ths spaced exactly 13 weeks apart, an omen of doom and gloom? I don`t know about you, but I`m stocking up on canned food, bottled water and adult diapers!
