Flashback week 13-2009

The number 13 is associated with bad luck by a lot of people and even has a specifically recognized phobia, Triskaidekaphobia, a word which was coined in 1911 and which means: fear of the 13. In other religions & some countries 13 is actually a lucky number. Below we have the Flashback of week 13 of 2009, good luck reading!
