I'm stating that there is an eerie similarity between events in 1313 BCE and events in 2013 CE. What am I linking? I'm linking the time of the year, the dates, and the Eighth Plague (and my recent gas purchase for $54.54 from an attendant born 5.4.54). That's enough for me.
First, let's verify the date from a reliable Rabbi named R. Simcha Bart from askmoses.com http://www.askmoses.com/en/article/241,2271685/What-were-the-dates-of-the-Exodus-and-splitting-of-the-Sea.html
R. Bart states: "In the spring of 1313 BCE - in the month of

Next, let's verify the Ten Plagues fromhe same website source and Mrs. Nechama D. Kumer.
1. Blood: All water turned to blood, including both river water (and killed all the river fish) and water in a cup. An Egyptian could only obtain water by buying it from a Jewish person.1
2. Frogs: These amphibious friends made their way into every nook and cranny of the Egyptians’ homes, croaking cacophony until they themselves croaked, leaving a rotting stench in their wake.

5. Pestilence: All Egyptian owned animals that were outdoors bit the dust.5
6. Boils: The Egyptians and their animals broke out in boils.6
7. Hail: Fire and ice came together in monster sized hailstones, killing any Egyptian who ventured outdoors and destroying much of their crops.7
8. Locusts: The locust of all shapes and sizes consumed anything they could get their pincers on that remained after the hail did its part. Then, G-d had the wind blow every last locust into the sea, so they wouldn’t then become the Egyptians’ soup de jour for lack of much else to eat.8
9. Darkness: At first it was really, really, really dark...and then the darkness became so thick that the Egyptians could not even move, remaining frozen until the plague passed.9
10. Smiting of the First Born: At the stroke of midnight, every firstborn male person and animal died. No household was spared, and most lost several members. The only one who was spared, was...Pharaoh himself, but boy was he scared...and don’t say we didn’t warn you...
