Another new word for me!

It is Friday the 13th and though I'm not a sufferer of this 'ailment' I found this article about its history very interesting.

Yes. We had a trouble (once again) to find a place to live. That's now next Spring 13 yrs ago. But the city could not get this place rented. It's quite new, it's planned by an architect, it's a very big block full of people, actually the tightest block in Western Finland.

But the number of the apartment was 13 N 13. So nobody had wanted it. We have been quite happy living here now almost 13 years. The house is new, near the center, everyplace you can get with the bike or by foot.

I think that people that passed the apartment were a little soft in their heads...

Ripsa, that is a fascinating story to illustrate the insanity of triskaidekaphobia!
