This is a great little article, thanks. I was recently talking to someone about the coincidences we all come across and, after a bit of mental prodding, realized that I could count to around ten really quite weird co-incidences that I’d personally experienced which seemed a mathematical impossibility to have occurred — and yet did. I’ve started writing them down in a series, and, after publishing the first one, had a browse around to see what other people had been posting on the subject. Found your story with a simple ‘coincidence’ search, be interested in your view on which category you’d class THIS one as! Not quite sure it fits that neatly, do you?

I blog on things I am passionate about: Bitcoin, writing, money, life’s crazy turns and being a dad. Lover of learning, family and cheese. (
