trivia 3/7

DID YOU KNOW.........
Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg was obsessed with the number 13. He was born on September 13, 1874, and believed he would die on the 13th as well. Probably, he decided, on a Friday the 13th, and most likely in 1951, when he was 76 (7 + 6 = 13). That year, July 13 fell on a Friday, and Schoenberg stayed in bed all day, awaiting death. Late that night his wife went to his room to check on him and scold him for wasting the day so foolishly. When she opened the door, Schoenberg looked up at her, uttered the single word “harmony”—and died. Time of death: 11:47 P.M. . . . 13 minutes before midnight.

Oh dear, I did so badly today I am not even going to share my score. I DID get the true/false stuff right.

Anyone else wonder if that guy just WILLED himself to die that way?
