Re: 7-9-13

Those numbers are kind of a magic spell (as well as today's date) they work in the same way as 'knock on wood' does (i.e. not at all -but they're very memorable).

Re: 7-9-13

WHY is it special? What does it mean? Where does it come from?

Wait.. are you not allowed to tell us. Is it a Nordic secret.

It's magic, that's how it's special, a bit like the hero of a fairy-tale always has to do three tasks... why three? -because three is more magic in the number three than in two and four put together!

7-9-13 are primes, perhaps that's why folk-'wisdom' has ordained them with super-magic powers!?!

Ancient stuff, this, as I wrote; you say the numbers (and / or kock on wood three times) to ward off Nemesis.

Re: 7-9-13

Well that movie did suck, maybe if it had opened in the Nordic lands first y'all could have stopped it from traveling south.

Re: 7-9-13

I only know of the 1934 film... but I guess you're right we could have stopped it -don't know the film though so I don't know that we would've.
