Triskaidekaphobia...Can I Spell That?

It hasn't even been 24 hours yet...let's update again! Always a fun thing. I wonder how many entries I have? I should look it up. Enh. Later. Like after I update this. That might be good. Maybe.

Pixy Stix: The Old-School Crack for Kids (and Poor People, served in a chic paper wrapping).

That's all I wanted to say. Just the pixy stix thing, nothing more really. Oh, and the number 13 is not to be feared damnit!

triskaidekaphobia (n. triss-kye-deh-kuh-FOH-bee-uh)

: fear of the number 13

It's impossible to say just how or when the number thirteen got its bad reputation. There are a number of theories, of course. Some say it comes from the Last Supper, because Jesus was betrayed afterwards by one among the thirteen present. Others trace the source of the superstition much farther back, to ancient Hindu beliefs or Norse mythology. But if written references are any indication, the phenomenon isn't all that old (at least, not among English speakers). Known mention of fear of thirteen in print dates back only to the late 1800s. By circa 1911, however, it was prevalent enough to merit a name, which was formed by attaching the Greek word for thirteen -- treiskaideka (dropping that first e) -- to phobia (fear of).
