In Pictures: Geeky ways to celebrate Friday the 13th

Don't be scared, there’s plenty to do on Friday, Sept. 13

Do the Math How often does Friday the 13th come around? Here’s an explanation courtesy of Wikipedia:

Each Gregorian 400-year cycle contains 146,097 days (365 × 400 = 146,000 normal days, plus 97 leap days). 146,097 ÷ 7 = 20,871 weeks. Thus, each cycle contains the same pattern of days of the week (and thus the same pattern of Fridays that are on the 13th). The 13th day of the month is slightly more likely to be a Friday than any other day of the week.[20] On average, there is a Friday the 13th once every 212.35 days (compared to Thursday the 13th, which occurs only once every 213.59 days).
