- I'm only doing this for a few laughs. I don't think it is possible t...o actually figure the odds but it might make some of us giggle. Today (Oct. 08, 2015) I was on my lunch break and was just driving around to get out of the office. I was listening to Oh No, Ross and Carrie! The Podcast and at the point that Carrie began a rant about people texting and driving and trying to kill her I heard squealing tires. I looked up into my rear-view mirror and saw a large pickup truck driven by a young woman (early 20s) moving left to right as she tried to not rear in me and she was standing on her breaks. But through it all she didn't put down her phone or stop texting. Good luck figuring the statistics on this one.
- I stumbled across this subreddit earlier today while hitting "random...". It seems to be a clearinghouse of people posting odd coincidences and attributing non-coincidental causes. Thought it may be a good mine if you find yourself lacking examples:
