June 13, 1986 – The Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, were born, and they are BOTH strange.

Jan. 13, 1989 – The “Friday the 13th virus” infected hundreds of IBM computers across Great Britain, wiping out program files and causing considerable anxiety at a time computer viruses weren’t a regular happening.

Oct. 13, 1989 – The Dow Jones Industrial Average underwent the second largest drop it had ever experienced at that time. Nicknamed the Friday-the-13th mini-crash, the Dow dropped 190.58 points that day. That would be nothing today!
