Freakish coincidences

These have been happening to me farrrrrrrrrrr too much lately. If I write them down, they'll stop.

1. I can't sleep, and have a sudden and brilliant idea - I will write a book about sex. I make a ton of notes, a few thousand words maybe, then sling the notes in the corner and go to bed. Next day, Woman is sitting on my bed and we are talking about something completely unrelated when she says "Have you ever thought about writing a book about sex?"

Initially, I gave her a ton of shit for going through my notes. But she hadn't (she can barely read my lousy handwriting anyway). It just... occured. No prior reference, nothing.

2. I am watching that stupid Daffy Duck cartoon with Dave Mustaine (fuck you, I'm on holidays) where they play 'Back in the Day' and destroy the Saxophone Whasis of Doom. I decide to play The System Has Failed and turn the volume up to "Noise Complaint Leads To Criminal Record" level.

The moment Back in the Day finishes (track 7), I hear a huge smash. One of my brandy balloons has walked off the speaker due to the bass vibrations and smashed itself to fuck at the exact fucking instant the song ends. Like in the cartoon. I barely even noticed Something That I'm Not starting.

Stop fucking with me, fate.

Ever seen I Heart Huckabees?

For me, coincidences begin to occur when I leave an acute eye out for them. They've always been there, your just more tuned into them because of the first one (which is a pretty weird one. Chances are she did read your notes and you should spank her. Spank 'er goood). I always see things falling into sync with whatever I'm listening to. Freaks me out. Sorry to hear about your Brandy.

EDIT: Mabye I'm wrong and you've got some strange power. You should try brainstorming a book about a giant three ton dildo dropping from the sky onto someone you hate infront of there family, or anything else you want to happen.

That's fucking weird.

Also, thats a pretty big compliment when a woman asks you if you've ever considered writing a book about sex.

Yeah, me too and all. I was torn between admiration for the sheer weirdness for the situation and annoyance that now I only have one brandy balloon, which makes their plural use for seduction purposes redundant.

Also, the trailers coincidence is just awesome. What are the odds - you bump someone with a trailer, and in the 90 seconds you have to go and apologise, someone bumps you with a trailer. Douglas Adams would cream himself with that one.

Carl Jung is the perpetual fucked, never the fucker. He gets fucked by archetypes, by coincidences, by his masculine and his feminine side, but he never does any fucking. That's his lot.

I Heart Huckabee's is a more easily digestible version of some weighty things, including Jung, that Jim's almost definitely already read. I'm not sure whether I'd say the movie's better if you don't know the material it parses or if you do.

My favorite bit on coincidence lately comes about midway through Immortality, by Milan Kundera, where he breaks down coincidences into their various categories. But I don't have it here, so I can't make clearer reference to it.

That happened at the restaurant my husband and I dined a couple weeks ago. The hostess brought it to our attention that the customer right before us had the exact same thing as us and the bills were identical.

My folks were traveling once and the same 3 numbers showed up in various places on the trip. They played the lottery back then and Mom told Dad he should play those numbers. Of course, my stubborn dad didn't and the numbers came in that week for the Ohio lottery and in reversed order in the Pennsylvania lottery the following week.

The thing that was most coincidental was that the car that hit mine also had a trailer attached.


wow talk about irony. i remember once i was walking under a tree, and normally at the spot im walking at,i would cross the street and get to the other side because its closer to my house. I was gonna cross, but hesitated so i kept walking, and then about a few seconds later, right where i was gonna walk, this huge blop of bird crap comes falling down and splats on the floor. Then some bastard on a pickup truck blasting his crap music zooms by at about 35 mph in a 10(?) mph speed zone [small, dead end streets, residential area]. I couldve been hit by that truck because it looks like nothing was stopping it, and to top that off, i couldve had a bird crap on my head.

Sometimes I catch myself walking on someone else's footsteps.......I was about 10-15 feet behind this dude, and he slipped on the ice. I wasn't paying any attention, and I did the same thing--exactly where he did it.

my roomate was playing the drums in the jam room we got, around 9:30pm, i sleep early to go to work early the next day, and the sound of drums had been keeping me up. my roomate had been playing drums since like around 7pm or so, so this was like since i returned home for the day till sleepy time<around 9> he had been playing the drums non-stop. so i was getting a little pissed, he also locked the door to the room so noone can interrupt him. the door is made on a wood frame, 2 pieces of dry wall insulated with carpet and old goodwill cloths<wieghts like 300 pound, big fucking door>. i wanted to smash thru the door to tell him to stop<drywall is easy to punch and kick thru>...........as soon as i touched the door to see whether it was really locked or not<it was locked> my roomate stops playing...........im talking the exact instant, i waited to see if he would resume playing and he does not. so i grab a seat and rethink about what i had just intended. i was glad i didnt annihilate a that door which was a son of a bitch to build and install, from which that roomate did most of the work and would be surely pissed. but that was a little wierd
