Dutch statisticians have established that Friday the 13th, a date regarded in many countries as inauspicious, is actually safer than an average Friday.
A study published by the Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) showed that fewer accidents and reports of fire and theft occur when the 13th of the month falls on a Friday than on other Fridays. There were also fewer incidents of fire and theft, although the average value of losses on Fridays 13th was slightly higher.
So Happy Friday the 13th. (And if your day is not safer yet, you now have an official excuse to fly to Amsterdam.)
