Well I Never!

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

Summoning instantly like magic

This happened today 03-14-2019 15 hours we went with my father to the lawyer's buffet, which is 3 km from home to see the union lawyer, in charge of the issue of my dismissal from work. With the wait and attention, we were there 1 hour and a half. Finished everything went to visit my grandmother, where I also left some papers. An hour later I go to my house that is 1 block away. Half an hour later I remember that I must do a paperwork and I need one of the papers left in my grandmother's, so I go back.

Friend Moving

For weeks now I have been upset about my friend moving out of New York to go to Georgia. I was asked to go out on a Saturday night and it happened to be a St. Patty's party with a special Dj. As soon as I walked in they said don't forget to sign up to win a trip to see The Chainsmokers. At this time I had no idea who that was but I was going to be a team player and sign up. While I was on the dance floor I heard my name announced. "Cassandra you won the trip" I was told I would be contacted within a few days.

Common Home Owners Meet

Our Coincidence Story: In 2017, two couples who had never met were on a flight from Minneapolis to Los Angeles with the Big Island as their ultimate destination. The four individuals were seated together in a 3-seat row with one across the aisle. During the flight, we talked about our experiences living in Minnesota and some of our travels. Before landing in Los Angeles, Susan and Gene exchanged emails and names so Gene could share a story he had written about the geological history of the Big Island. Susan seemed to recall Gene's name from living at 1715 Lindig St.

Birth/death patterns and 50 pattern

I was born on my paternal grandma's 50th birthday. She died on the same day (not year) that my husband was born. My mom was born on her maternal grandpas 50th birthday. My son was just a few hours shy of being born on my moms 50th birthday (his grandma). My paternal 6th great grandpa was born April 25, 1736 and my paternal grandpa was born April 25, 1935. My husbands grandpa was born April 25, 1930. And that's not all... my husbands grandpas name was abraham, same name as my paternal 6th great grandpa.

Hyphenation coincidence

On 2 October 2016 I was reading a book (Critical Assembly - A Technical History of Los Alamos during the Oppenheimer Years, 1943-1945). I read the last line of page 117: During the summer of 1944, however, 3-inch testing became less de- I turned over and continued reading: cay series, is ordinarily isolated from lead concentrates. Although en- I realised that this did not make sense. I then discovered that I had turned over two pages, and instead of reading the top of page 118, I was reading the top of page 120.

The Scorpio.

10 years ago I was working for a company but I did not like my job. I started considering to go back to University to attend a Master degree. But this would have meant to quit the job and to use all the savings I had. My partner suggested me not to be silly and to keep working. In his opinion I was going to leave a certain future for uncertainty.

Everything Comes in Perfect Timing

So my coincidence is more like a series. It is January of 2019 scattered with synchronicity after another all centered around this one person. I met this guy over the summer, moved away, moved back and he was dating someone. Then we reconnected at the beginning of January through a mutual friend who I met 5 years ago at a hostel and was back in nola visiting his partner who just moved here. This guy was roommates with my friends partner...so we reconnected and found out that he was going to be at a tree planting my nonprofit was organizing two days later. Great so saw him at the planting.

Synchronicity of words

My story is very similar to the person who wrote about reading a word (and the same word is said at that moment or one second later). This happens to me almost daily, as expressed by the previous writer- from 2017. Does anyone know what this means? Please write me back, a comment/information, Thank you Sagacious11

Movies and Coach

A. The Wizard of Oz (1939) 1. Hickory, North Carolina, is my hometown. I graduated from Hickory High School in Hickory, North Carolina. The mascot for this high school is the “Red Tornadoes.” I am not sure what year this high school adopted this mascot though the Wikipedia page for this high school does state that the high school in Hickory, North Carolina, was renamed “Hickory High School” in the 1940s. In the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, a tornado sweeps the character Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, away from Kansas, and “Hickory” is the name of another character in that movie.
