[According to] the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in North Carolina [...] when the 13th of the month falls on a Friday [...] customers refrain from activities such as flying and anxious employees stay home from work.The phenomenon even has a name: paraskavedekatriaphobia is the fear of Friday 13th, while triskaidekaphobics are scared of the number 13 more generally.
A corresponding elevator in China.
In China, Norway and the US the first floor is the ground floor. In Czechia, Sweden and Britain the first floor is the floor above the ground floor.
4 and combinations is unlucky because 4 (四) sounds like death (死).
In CanadaThe origins of Canadian Thanksgiving are also sometimes traced to the French settlers who came to New France in the 17th century, who celebrated their successful harvests. The French settlers in the area typically had feasts at the end of the harvest season and continued throughout the winter season, even sharing food with the indigenous peoples of the area.In the United StatesPilgrims and Puritans who emigrated from England in the 1620s and 1630s carried the tradition of Days of Fasting and Days of Thanksgiving with them to New England. The modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is traced to a well-recorded 1619 event in Virginia and a sparsely documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts. The 1619 arrival of 38 English settlers at Berkeley Hundred in Charles City County, Virginia, concluded with a religious celebration as dictated by the group's charter from the London Company [...]Thanksgiving proclamations were made mostly by church leaders in New England up until 1682, and then by both state and church leaders until after the American Revolution. During the revolutionary period, political influences affected the issuance of Thanksgiving proclamations. Various proclamations were made by royal governors, John Hancock, General George Washington, and the Continental Congress, each giving thanks to God for events favorable to their causes.On October 31, 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a presidential proclamation changing the holiday to the next to last Thursday in November, for business reasons. On December 26, 1941, he signed a joint resolution of Congress changing the national Thanksgiving Day from the last Thursday in November to the fourth Thursday.Since 1971, when the American Uniform Monday Holiday Act took effect, the American observance of Columbus Day has coincided with the Canadian observance of Thanksgiving.
About a decade later Captain John Smith, who coined the term "New England," wrote that the Massachusetts, a nearby indigenous group, inhabited what he described as "the Paradise of all those parts."Champlain and Smith understood that any Europeans who wanted to establish communities in this region would need either to compete with Natives or find ways to extract resources with their support.But after Champlain and Smith visited, a terrible illness spread through the region. Modern scholars have argued that indigenous communities were devastated by leptospirosis, a disease caused by Old World bacteria that had likely reached New England through the feces of rats that arrived on European ships.[...]The epidemic benefited the Pilgrims, who arrived soon thereafter: The best land had fewer residents and there was less competition for local resources, while the Natives who had survived proved eager trading partners.
The combination of -1 and 1 without 0/parterre/ground floor/whatever strikes me as the worst possible combination. But in spite of that, I'm much more perturbed by all the missing numbers that aren't 0. So on one of those enormous skyscrapers you'll have "300" floors even if there are actually some 260 just because every combination with 4 is mysteriously missing? How about combinations with 13?
