Cambridge Coincidences Collection

Well I Never!

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

Living in the same area

I live in San Chong, as the school is pretty far from where I assumed that there will be no one living in the same area as I lived in. Recently I saw one of my schoolmates often in the same mrt as I was and I was curious so I asked him, this is when I realize we live in the same area and mrt station. Such a coincidence.

Meeting my First Friend

When I was in the first day of my first grade, i started talking to the boy sitting next to me, and we soon become my first friend in elementary school. The next day, when i went to my english cram school, i found out my first friend was also studying here, after we know each other better, we realize that our birthday is only one day diffrerent, therefore we are also born in the same hospital.

Meet my friend without planning

One of my best friend and I were separated into different school since we graduated from the same middle school. One night right after when I finished the clam school, I walked the different route to the Zhisan-MRT station and I met that friend without planning with that friend. He also just finished his sports club and on the way home. We were so busy in different school and didn't have time to contact each other and so on. We just bumped into each other at the SOGO department.

Food coincidence

Both my high school classmate and I don't like the spicy food.

mutual friends in Huaxing.

My classmate Devin and I both studied in Huaxing before but different period of time. I was in Huaxing elementary school and he was in Huaxing junior high School. Although we were not in the same class at the same period of time, but we both have some mutual friends in Huaxing. Now we are also classmates in Kueishan.

haagen dazs strawberry ice cream

Renee and I went to eat haagen dazs when we are ordering the ice cream we found out that we both order strawberry ice cream, I ask her why do you like this flavor, she told me is because of the strawberry inside and thats what I like too.

Sharing Birthdays

In my previous school my best friend's sister shared the same birthday with me, this allowed the both of us to compete who can send happy birthday first between the both of us. After having the same birthday I moved to Taiwan where I attended Kuei Shan, in Kuei Shan I met 2 students, Lucas and Johnny who share the same birthday as me. One which was Lucas my classmate shares the same birthday in the same year.

Same Neighborhood

My friend Yuki and I met in Beijing in middle school. We found out we were both Taiwanese and came from the same part of Taipei. We then found out that our grandparents lived only three minutes away from each other, in the same neighborhood.

Coincidence of living in the same building.

I have a classmate, his name is Samuel. We are in the same class. One day, after I got home, I sat in the lobby of the building playing phone. Later on, I heard somebody say my name. I look up and saw Samuel looking at me with curiosity. I was astonished that he lived in the same building with me.

friend coincidence

I had a friend (P) from when I was 5 or 6, who I had lost contact with when I moved to England. When I moved to Taiwan after 6 years, she was in the same school that I transferred to. I soon transferred to another school and met another person (S). I was scrolling through Instagram one day and found that S had liked P's photo. I asked S how S knew P and it turned out P was his old primary school friend.
