The aim was to help improve the way that uncertainty and risk are discussed in society, and show how probability and statistics can be both useful and entertaining.

I'll try and keep this short. I live in Mississippi. I have a PC and often watch Youtube videos. Years ago, I fell in love with a Christian Theologian by the name of Boyd. Boyd has a church in Minnesota and they record the services each sunday; you can download them from the website. I did not know about the church website at first but found a person who was posting these sermons onto his youtube channel. This person's name is Chris. Over the course of a year or so of watching these sermons, Chris and I would get into discussions about them. I never told him where I lived or gave him any info about myself other than my first name. So we were distant friends of sorts, having the common interest in Dr. Boyd's messages. At some point along the way he tells me that he met and fell in love with a girl in his town, which turns out to be in Idaho. They get married. Chris is still posting the sermons and we continue to discuss them. Now comes the thrilling part. He and his new wife, both living in Idaho, are taking a trip to her hometown to visit and let Chris meet her parents. Guess where she is from? The very town in Mississippi that I live in! They come here and we nervously meet and they end up living and working here for a while so Chris, this unknown stranger from the internet is living here and we are friends. I've had plenty of unusual and bizarre coincidences that I've found remarkable but this one takes the cake, yeah? Perhaps you can easily explain it. As a Jesus follower I want to say that God needed Chris and I to meet so He he hooked us up. Kevin
