  7. Do other countries have superstitions about 13 like we do? I can say 13 in Gibberish but can't spell it! http://looseleafnotes.com

  10. Thirteen ways to say "unlucky"? Seriously, I'm not superstitious, but I remember that my grandfather would refuse to sit at a table, if there were 12 people already seated.

    Creative idea for a list.

  13. Hi Nessa,

    Terrific idea! As an artist who used to teach math, I knew those math ones, but the only language other than "Roman Numerals" was French, since you didn't pick any of the (very few) other languages I can count in. Kre8tiv 13!
