No floor number 4, 13, 14, and 24 in vancouver highrises.
I've known this for a while being in construction, but I was just reminded of it today. I don't know if this is anywhere else but in Vancouver, here residential highrises are built with no floor 4, 13, 14, 24, or 34 etc... This is because they are supersticious numbers, 13 for Westerners, and enything with a 4 in it for Asians. I never really thought much about it years ago, but today (spending the last few years growing my rational mind) I found it particularly funny that entire buildings worth $100,000,000 are designed around peoples stupidity. Floor 13 has always been avoided, but as more Asians (no idea which countries do the #4 thing) came to Vancouver and bought up real estate developers noticed they wern't buying on floors with a 4 in them. Now 4 is just avoided completely to not minimize potetial buyers. My personal opigion (and this is just my opigion), it is fucking retarded. So wtf is the logic? If you believe floor 13 is really bad luck, then isn't floor 14 floor 13 in a building with no 13th floor? I count up 13 windows, and that's your floor, yet is is called the 14th floor, so your ok, no bad luck their? I don't get it!
Why are people so damb retarded?
