It's Friday the 13th, and while superstitions about today abound, for some people it turns out this day which only comes around a few times a year is actually pretty fantastic.

As a born-on-the-13th baby, it's my duty to dispel any myths about this much maligned day. First off, there's a good chance that if you sit down to dinner with 13 people today, one of you won't be dead within a year. Unless it's really, really old relative's birthday, then maybe all bets are off.

Secondly, it's actually not unlucky to be born on the 13th of a month.

Why? Well, because you were born. That's a big deal. It was definitely a big deal for these 13 stars born on Friday the 13th. As it turns out, that was their (and our) lucky day.

Today is a Friday like any other, despite what the calendar may say, but should you go to any sleepaway camps, look out for guys in hockey masks. Just in case.

Darius Rucker has made headlines by responding, publicly, to a racist Tweet made towards him after a cover of Bob Dylan he performed last weekend.

After Rucker sang "Wagon Wheel" at the Grand Ole Opry, former Twitter user @PQKullman tweeted, "@dariusrucker Leave country to the white folk."

Rucker immediately re-tweeted the comment adding, "WOW. Is this 2013 or 1913? I'll take my grand ole Opry membership and leave your racism. Wow."

Asked by fans why he even bothered responding such racist trash, the former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman said, "So the world can see them."

Following the exchange, @PQKullman's handle was deleted, but it has since been reopened, ostensibly by a different user, with the profile reading:

"This previously racist profile has been re-registered to promote good things & not hatred. I am not the one who made a racist comment to Darius Rucker."
