Friday the 13th and a new editor system.
But we’re not a Norwegian God nor have anything to see with the last supper.

That is where the Friday the 13th myth seems to come from.
Nothing to be afraid of, horror or unluckiness.

Maybe play the lottery?
Forget superstition, let’s talk reality.

Welcome to the BBT News.
