November 27th? Why?

Forget Friday the 13th - today is the day for real bad luck

THIS could be your unlucky day. Monday the 27th has, it seems, overtaken Friday the 13th as the date on which the more suspicious among us should avoid the likes of job interviews, weddings and driving tests.

The date has been identified as the most ill-starred on the calendar, with more mishaps recorded than at any other.

The trend emerged from a study of more than one million insurance claims, showing more people are likely to have accidents on Monday the 27th than on any other day. Domestic disasters, including burst water pipes and DIY problems, feature heavily on the lists.

Road accidents were also common on that date. The mishaps of unlucky British drivers included crashes in car parks, branches falling on cars and accidents caused by people trying to avoid animals.

Kevin Sinclair, the managing director of AA Insurance, which carried out the study, said: "Friday the 13th is associated with bad luck, but our records show you're statistically more likely to have an accident or break something on Monday the 27th."

Rand and I watched SLiTHER this weekend, and there was a 27 in the opening scene.

Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion) and another cop are sitting in a parked car, clearly bored. The second cop (Wally?) is clocking a bird with the speed gun, and comments that a whipporwhill flies exactly 27 miles per hour.

Tonight: Kitchen Distribution Presents “27 Sightings Past the Stele”


“How America needs poets! God knows – she has enough profit takers, enough garage mechanics, enough journalists, enough teachers of only what has been taught, enough wage slaves. Without the poet – man of vision wherever he stands – the Soul of his people is a dead Soul. One must be insensible not to feel the chill creeping over ours.” -Frank Lloyd Wright
