    First of all, I am sure that The Number 23 was released long ago because I know that I have seen it before in math classes. But beyond that, I do understand this phenomenon: 23 is ten greater than 13, and we have ten fingers, so clearly 23 is a dangerous number. :rolleyes:

    Would this be Triskaididekaphobia?
