Everyday I work HARD to bring you the five biggest things going on in the world (I use the term HARD, loosely), with "Five Things You Need To Know"!

Today is no exception.


For Friday, September 13th, 2019:




1. Friday the 13th is the fear of the number 13 and that is called "triskaidekaphobia".  They believe it originated from the "Last Supper" painting with Jesus and his disciples because there were 13 in the painting and it was the last night before Good Friday." 

2. James Cameron drew the topless photo of Kate Winslet used on Titanic.

3. Samsung uses butt-shaped robots to test phones.

4. Armadillo shells are bulletproof.

5. Coffee breaks come from an 1800 tradition called " elevenses".  People would get a break from work at 11 to drink whiskey.
