Hello everyone

I was watching a talk show a while ago, did not get all of it, but he was saying all these people's names totalling 13 letters, i.e. Charles Manson and more horrid people with 13 letters in their name (I can't remember them now, but there were alot of serial killers etc amongst them). It really did get me quickly adding up my name and my children's.   rolleyes.gif

Do you think there is something in it, or just a coincidence?   He was advising people to stay away from names adding up to 13 letters!!!!

What do you think?? I am not normally a superstitious person, but he definiteley put me off having 13 letters if i were to have more children name.

Also don't let your child be born on the 13th rolleyes.gif

The Number 13 is a SUPERSTITION!!!

I am sure if you did a search for serial killers with X letters to their name you would also get a result.

Joseph Stalin
Adolf Hitler
Napoleon Bonaparte don't fit the list wink.gif

I also remember watching a show about 'cracking the bible code' about how there was a 'hidden' message in the bible and all these future events were predicted...... then someone applied the same code to "Moby d*ck" and came up with similar results (ie. to disprove the theory). If you are looking for a pattern you can usually find one to suit wink.gif

It only matters if you believe it matters. I believe it is a load of cow patties.

Also is he counting FULL names.... Charles Manson doesn't fit the list wink.gif

Charles Milles Manson wink.gif

As I said, pick a theory and find your own 'supporting evidence' and sensationalise rolleyes.gif

I think it sounds like total crap.

But I will admit that I just added up the letters of the names of the two that give me the most trouble and they both have 13... doo do doo do...

I don't think he means every person with 13 letters will turn into a serial killer, they just have more bad luck etc.   I think it sounds abit ridiculous too, but I have added up a few horrible people I have met in my life and the majority of them are 13 letters....

If you saw the interview, it would get you thinking too..........

Born on the 13th I have lived with others 'superstitions' of my birthdate rolleyes.gif

Like PP 13 is Lucky for me (even won big at Monte Carlo on Black 13 wink.gif ) PLUS my name is 13 letters too (if doing first and last name). I consider myself lucky and happy with life.

Scoff.

My son has 13 letters in his name. It's a faily well known fact he's the spawn of all evil. Then again, if middle names aren't included I guess he's safe. So's Charles Manson.
