Friday the 13th — now hanging ominously over us — is so famously unlucky that it even has a phobia dedicated to it: Friggatriskaidekaphobia. It is one of the longest words in the dictionary and, as an ironic twist, it’s also used for the fear of long words. So it’s essentially afraid of itself. Today’s world appears filled with fear more than just caution. In the public’s mind, the coronavirus is relentlessly stalking us all with a mission to take out as many as possible before it’s disabled.
