Well I Never!

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

First Love Last Love

I attended a funeral for a friend recently. Unfortunately due to reasons unknown to me the family did not allow someone to attend that had pretty much spent 20 plus years with in in an on, off again relationship. I left the funeral and went to a thrift store after. it's the way I deal with my emotions. It was a hot day and no reason to do this but I went over the coat rack and started browsing the coats. I picked out this coat that looked nice. I pulled it off the hanger. Inside the coat the label said, O'Neill. Now the person who the family left out has the last name O'Neil.

Giraffe

I was driving and thinking I would like a Giraffe statue. My sister has a very tall one in her place. I had just dropped my dog off and that's why it was no my mind. I drove to my storage to get some of my things to bring to my place. A guy was selling some things on the side of the road. He had a Giraffe so I bought it.

444

Often I will be doing something, email messages. Or reading a book. Something will happen. I'm redirected. Something redirects me and when I get redirected via websites. or books or other things I end up seeing 444. Not always but often enough. It's difficult to explain but it happens alot. This is part of the angel numbers. Angel Number 444 is a message that you have nothing to fear in regards to your life, work and Divine life purpose. (not that it matters to your study but years ago at the age of 20 I astral projected, I've only once accomplished astral projection.

Joker

I had lip injections done at a plastic surgeon. This was the second time. My nephew commented by saying make sure he doesn't make you look like the joker this time. I told the plastic surgeon about it. After I left the office I was driving my car and a vehicle passed me and the license plate was, Joker. I laughed. I see them more than as mathematical probabilities. Personally, ego driven as you say, Maybe, I see them as something else, not sure how to define it. They have a sense of humour.

Midwife!

Around Christmas 2011 we received a piece of mis-delivered post, an NHS registration card for a new baby born by the name of Martha, who lived across the other side of the city in a similarly named street. A few days later, the local midwife knocked at the door, also looking for baby Martha. She was very surprised to see me and told me she had been thinking about me just that day. She said she had attended a young woman who had just given birth and the new grandmother showed the midwife a photograph of the three of them when the young mother herself had just been born.

The white owl

I have experienced many coincidences in life and have always found them to be quite remarkable. One morning, while driving to work, I decided to take note of any coincidence that might occur. Nothing strange happened at work but while driving home I decided to listen to some music. I was talking earlier that day with a coworker about concerts that I’d been to while going through a heavy metal phase. The last one that I’d gone to featured the deftones. I decided to see what they were up to and searched for some new music by the group.

same address

Bought tickets for York Art Gallery, agreed to gift aid, so gave post code. The woman said, that's familiar. She used to live next door, in Bridge of Allan, central Scotland.

Pennies from Dad

My father died in 2011, at the age of 99. Daddy was always one of those guys who saved his pennies. I had occasionally found pennies on the ground when I was out and about, but after my dad passed away, it seemed as though the number I was finding increased. I began finding them almost every day. When one or two days would go by without my finding one, I would then find a Nicole, dime, or quarter instead. One day I jokingly picked one up and said aloud, “Thanks, Daddy”. My son was with me and asked what I was doing so I told him about finding all of the pennies and other change.

Repeating Initials

When I was around 8 years old I discovered my favorite band and quickly started to develop a crush on the main singer whose initials are J.M. To this day, EVERY SINGLE GUY I've come to have a crush on or had a relationship with has had the same initials. It's not like i look for them, but once I'm already into them or dating them I discover their last name or simply realize they to, in fact, have the same initials.

my doctor appears when I need to speak to him

I live in a city of approximately 0.5 million people. I saw a new doctor last week, and now I needed to speak to him (I was going to call him tomorrow morning when he would be at his surgery). But this afternoon I needed to buy some pillowcases, so I travelled across town to ikea. I arrived at the pillowcases, and there was my doctor!
