June 21st ~ Good for some, bad for others...

When King Louis XVI of France was a child, he was warned by an astrologer to always be on his guard on the 21st day of each month.

Louis was so terrified by this that he never did business on this day. Unfortunately Louis was not always on his guard.

On June 21st 1791, following the French revolution, Louis and his queen were arrested in Varennes, whist trying to escape France.

On September 21st 1791, France abolished the institution of Royalty and proclaimed itself a republic.

Finally on January 21st 1793, King Louis XVI was executed by guillotine.

In September 1955, James Dean was killed in a horrific car accident whilst he was driving his Porsche sports car. After the crash the car was seen as very unlucky. Here’s some reasons why:

  • When the car was towed away from accident scene and taken to a garage, the engine slipped out and fell onto a mechanic, shattering both of his legs.

  • Eventually the engine was bought by a doctor, who put it into his racing car and was killed shortly afterwards, during a race. Another racing driver, in the same race, was killed in his car, which had James Dean’s drive shaft fitted to it.

  • When James Dean’s Porsche was later repaired, the garage it was in was destroyed by fire.

  • Later the car was displayed in Sacramento, but it fell off it’s mount and broke a teenager’s hip.

  • In Oregon, the trailer that the car was mounted on slipped from it’s tow bar and smashed through the front of a shop.

  • Finally, in 1959, the car mysteriously broke into 11 pieces while it was sitting on steel supports.
