It's Friday the 13th. More importantly it's 2017, and I would think we have learned some things by now. We've learned the earth isn't flat. We've learned what a solar eclipse is (hint: it's not an angry god). So you would think we'd be advanced enough to no longer buy into superstitions. The truth is any given person will have a certain amount of good fortune and bad fortune in any given year. If you focus on the bad and try to find a magical reason, you can make up anything.

I don't believe in any superstitions and to prove it I put together this video. In 90 seconds I challenged a number of superstitions. So if you believe in this stuff you'd better not be standing near me during the next lightning storm.
