Nakiephobia - Sometimes, I'll be out in a public place, and all the sudden, I'll get all paranoid that I might have left the house without clothes on (weather it be pants, shirt, shoes, or all, it depends, usually pants) and I'll have to keep making sure that I'm wearing clothes for about 5 minutes untill I forget about it.....I'm serious, too, that's the weird part.....don't know where it comes from.

Alexander The Great wanted to be a God and accordingly made a 13th statue on the place of his capital. He died and people considered that his will to be a 13th God (12 gods, one for each month were known) was the reason of his death. After that this number was considered as unlucky.

According to historians, there were 13 people at Christ's Last Supper and Christ was crucified on Friday 13th. So, Friday 13th is considered as Unlucky.

And now you know.
