I cancelled my Lovefilm because of this, haha.
Anyone who has had an account with them knows that you ideally keep about ten movies on your list of what you want to watch at any one time, and they
will send them out in a random order. My list was all sorted out, and my discs would arrive. At least eight times, I would watch the movies, and a few
nights later the exact same movie would be on TV. Most notably Inception and Galaxyquest were aired the nights after I watched the discs (seperate
For a service that is essentially random, that's pretty weird. It's a waste of money as well, hence my cancellation!
Another thing that happened quite often was when we were set to move house. My fathers job required us to go here, there and everywhere. We would get
word of where we were moving to, and the next few weeks would be filled with references to these locations on TV. From adverts to holiday programs, it
never failed. Even when we were going to San Francisco on holiday, I was banging on about Haight and Ashbury and a few days later it was in a
documentary. It's worth noting that we have never gone looking for similarities, they just happened to correlate with current plans.
And when it comes to phone calls, I believe I am deeply tied at some invisible level with those I love. We quite often attempt to call each other at
exactly the same time, to the point that my finger has been hovering over the dial key more than once and the phone rings, the person calling being
the one who I was about to dial.
