Well I Never!

Professor David Spiegelhalter of Cambridge University wants to know about your coincidences!

Blackadder!

This just happened to me yesterday (July 17, 2015). I was returning some DVD's to the library, and two of them contained episodes of the Blackadder TV show. Rgith after dropping off the DVD's, I walked over to the books-for-sale shelf, and picked up a book I hadn't seen there before. It was entitled "Spud - The Madness Continues," about a South African schoolboy nicknamed Spud. The description on the back mentioned Spud's friend Vern Blackadder.

The Dolphin Pendant

I was walking with someone and brought up the subject of dolphins, saying somewhat jokingly that I was thinking about writing a novel with a dolphin as of the main characters. Not a minute later we were stopped at a traffic light, and on the ground I saw a dulled silver-colored piece of metal attached to a shoelace. I picked it up to examine it, and it was a pendant in the shape of a dolphin.

We kept running into each other

I dropped off a job application with the receptionist at an office. Weeks later, we bumped into each other after dark and out of doors in another part of town. (I didn't recognize her, but she recognized me and mentioned that I had left off the application.) After some time had passed, we ran into each other at least one more time, and likely twice at two different times and places.

Thematic Sycronistic Cluster

I fell in love with this girl Jess and we knew at the same time. Feb 4th. Everything about us was amazing. She was separated and having a tough time. She wanted her space so she left. I had been in love once years before with Lauren and had made a deal (prayed I guess) with her dead father that if he had brought her back to me I would never love again. Her father had died on July19th the year before we had gotten together. My birthday is July 19th (tomorrow). Also, Lauren and I had broken up twice on Feb 4th 2006 and 2008.

Coincidence of Dates

My parents were married on December 12th, I was born on December 12th, my daughter was born on December 12th. My former husband, from a former marriage, lost a son at the age of 15. He passed away on June 15th when our daughter was 15.

Phone number has the same numbers

My boyfriend and I have always had 11:11 and 2.22 appear constantly and have both been fascinated by synchronicity of events and felt connected on a spiritual level even over vast distances. We have been separated by circumstances and I haven't had contact with him for over two months. I can however feel his presence every now and then and know we will be reunited soon. We feel we have known each other in a past life and so it doesn't feel that bad to wait to see each other as we know we have plenty of time, perhaps next life!

Odd coincidences in Family

My paternal parents were married on June 26,1960, I was born on June 26,1962, my sister was born on June 26, 1964. My son was born on June 3rd, 1986, my sisters son was born on June 3rd, 1987. Can you calculate the odds of such occurrences? Regards, C. Matthew

Surprising repetition

I am 20 years old. When i was 18 i saw one guy in the city centre ( who is musician ). I know him virtually, (he enrolled youth movement which my exboyfriend also did. And my ex sometimes speaks about him or their band, there are 2 guys, and they have some videos on YouTube ), i mean we don't have relationship. After that in 2o14 when i was 19 i had another boyfriend, and i forget thinking about him ( who i saw in 2013 ) one day i met my group mates for educational purpose, and we walked and talked about something and then i saw same person in there, he looked at me. And i also.

Weird Phone Call #2

I was calling about a job. For some reason I seemed to be having difficulty dailing the number. When the person on the other end picked up they said "such and such chemist how can I help".<br /> I hung up confused. The chemist that had answered happened to be the one I went to to get my medication. I hadn't noticed but I had run out and needed to get more. This happened to be my last chance to pick up my script so I went to the chemist immediately. When I got there I lost the number for the job.
