Finnair flight AY666 from Copenhagen to Helsinki (airport code HEL) is departing today, Friday the 13th, and the pilot has expressed no concerns about the flight, despite all the bright, flashing signs screaming 'THIS MIGHT BE A BAD IDEA'. Remember: superstition is only superstition until something actually happens, then it was God trying to tell you something.
Finnair flight AY666 from Copenhagen to Helsinki (HEL) will actually be taking off twice on Friday the 13th, but that doesn't seem to have unnerved many passengers; almost all its seats are taken. And among the unsuspicious travelers who take pains to laugh in the face of the Baphomet is the captain, Juha-Pekka Keidasto. "It has been quite a joke among the pilots," he told the Guardian, blatantly tempting fate. "I'm not a superstitious man. It's only a coincidence for me."
Oh sure, it's always a coincidence TILL A PORTAL TO HELL OPENS UP AND SWALLOWS THE PLANE. Then what -- emergency land in a lava floe and try to convince the devil he got the wrong flight?
Devil: Is this not flight 666 to HEL?
Pilot: What if I told you it's actually Oceanic flight 815?
Devil: I loved LOST!
Pilot: Same here. So....let us go?
Devil: Not a chance, now pass out one of these flaming buttplugs to everyone on board.
Devil: Yours is the one that looks like a burning traffic cone.
Thanks to Cy, who is too afraid to even leave his house today for fear of masked men with machetes and blade-fingered dream invaders. Same. I saw a black cat this morning that morphed into a fat squirrel as a I got closer.
