Friday and 13


It's Friday the 13th. The second and last one of the year. (In any given year there will be at least one, but never more than three. If there are three, they will be in February, March, and November. Unless it's a leap year, and then they'll be in January, April, and July. And they occur when a month starts--the 1st is--on a Sunday.)

Enough random calendar information...

Anyway, as last week was rather light on blog-worthy subbing incidents (good for my sanity, not so much for the blog), it's time for another random quiz Friday. And in honor of the day, I found a Friday the 13th quiz.

You can click the "prev" and "next" to skip around. If needed. This shouldn't be too difficult of a quiz. And if you can't work the embed, click on the link above.


Please let me know how you did in the comments 😎

  1. I'm not up for a quiz, but I learned something interesting and fun. Brave passengers board last ever Flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th. Of course it's happened twenty-one times over the years, but how fun is that? The flight number, along with some others in Finnair's system, is being retired: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/10/13/brave-passengers-board-last-ever-flight-666-hel-friday-13th/

    1. I read about that flight. Now, that's a confluence of "unlucky".

  2. I got them all right, too. It was pretty easy to which answers went with with. We're not going to mistake the NASA moon mission for Freaky Friday :P

  6. Usually I get nervous on Friday 13 but this time it came and went without me registering it! I'd fail the quiz I'm sure.

    1. I generally find it to be a lucky day. For me. Like, this time I actually got out of work early :)

  7. Did not go well the first time since I clicked on the wrong thing to bring it up and the questions were not showing for me. I got 88 the second time when I used the link you provided. Cool quiz.

    1. Yeah, that embed doesn't really fit very well on the blog. It's probably easier to take the quiz on their site.
