Cambridge Coincidences Collection

Well I Never!

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

Me a man 1 year later in the same place as the year before...and that's not all.

I was on holiday in Tenerife, sitting on the beach. I saw a man eating a hamburger and thought I would like one, so I asked him where he bought it. As he told me I recognised him from meeting him a year before in the same hotel where we used to stay and meet in the bar in the evening. At the end of the week we exchanged names and mobile phone numbers. My surname is Lobl and his is Lobley. We have the same mobile phone models. We got talking about cars and we have the same make, model and colour.

Flying coincidence

Flying from San Francisco to Denver on March 23, 2015. Denver is my home. I sat next to a woman on a United flight. I helped her with her overhead carry on. We didn't chat other than her saying thank you. Fast forward 9 days later on April 1, 2015. I arrive at the airport in denver for a flight to Tulsa. After getting through checkpoint I'm on the escalator to get to concourse B. Who is in front of me? The exact same woman from the San Francisco to denver flight. She was wearing the same Native Shaul/overcoat and red bag. I was stunned!

Old friend

Every where i go i see the same friend and we repeat the same dialouge for an hours

Parents die 5 years apart on the same day.

Parents die 5 years apart on the same day. Both of them died on april 27. Very odd.

Mathematically Linked Friends

I'm born on May 24. My friend is born on April 15. Our birthdays are 39 days apart. "39 is the smallest natural number which has three partitions into three parts which all give the same product when multiplied: {25, 8, 6}, {24, 10, 5}, {20, 15, 4}." The second group of numbers contains the numbers 5 (May) and 24. It also contains the number 10. 10 in Roman numerals is X. I have one X chromosome (XY). The third group of numbers contains the numbers 4 (April) and 15. It also contains the number 20. 20 in Roman numerals is XX. She has two X chromosomes (XX).

Boyfriends and birthdays

My very first boyfriend was born Feb 13th My ex-husband was born Feb 12th Short term boyfriend Feb 11th Recently met another potential boyfriend born on Feb 12th <---time to run. I don't date a lot, so this is getting ridiculous. This is all random people I like and then find out their birthdays later.

Four members of the same family died in the same day and month of different years

This is regarding my mother´s family tree, relatives - Two uncles have died in the same day, April 4th, 2012, Mauro Hiroaki Arai and Roberto Oriondo Dias, one in Parana state, another in Sao Paulo state, Brazil. In the next year, the husband of another relative in Parana had died too, April 4th, 2013. And yesterday, April 4th, 2015, Pedro Denshiti Nogawa (son of Kinoe Nogawa, former Arai when single) died too. It is 4 persons in the Arai family who died in the exact same day and month of different years... a strange coincidence...

Wolf dog and wild boers

At times, I take the principle "everything is connected with everything" (mutual interconnectedness ) LITERALLY... ... On hearing the news of the catastrophe of the Germanwings plain on the 25th March I soon tried to figure out what I was doing at the moment when the plain disappeared from the radar-screen on the 24th, 10:53. I found that almost exactly this was the time when I was sending an email to a married couple in Schwitzerland. A link, no text.
