If you’re from around these parts Friday the 13th has more to do with a motor bike trip to Pt Dover than a day of bad luck.
That being said some are literally rendered useless when the day appears on their calendar.
Millions of dollars are lost on Friday the 13th as some refuse to fly, while other won’t even set foot outside their home.
Apparently dopamine is the culprit.
It’s the chemical in our brain that allows us to see patterns.
Those who have more in the body are more likely to be superstitious.
Bad things happen every day but if we’re more attune to Friday the 13th we may only recognize the bad on this day.
Much the same way an athlete may have the same ritual before a game.
Something you might want to bring up when you’re having a cocktail with friends today, unless of course, you’re in Pt. Dover.
