I want to hear your stories and opinions on the idea of people being able to predict future events.
My most recent example happened this evening. I watch family guy occasionally. All afternoon in my head the episode that had Barry Manilow singing to
Quagmire kept repeating in my head. I turned on my TV earlier and went straight to channel 296 (Cartoon Network) and that exact episode happened to be
airing. This has happened many times before (and with different shows), even movies I am thinking about will be airing on TV.
Another example: I haven't listened to radio in about ten years. I'm not much of a music guy. The only time I am familiar with a recent song is if
it's used on TV or in movies. I typically listen to new age stuff these days, if anything. So several months ago I have that evil song
"Tubthumping" by Chumbawumba enter my head and I can't get it out. I hadn't watched television that day before I left the house so I don't think
I heard it anywhere, at least not that day. Then I'm at the check-out line in Wal-Mart and it's still in my head. I'm not humming it at all, I'm
trying to forget about it! Suddenly the girl in front of me in line starts singing the song quietly to herself! Why?
Similarly related: Quite often I also find myself waking up just before the phone will ring, or someone knocks on the door. I can't say that this has
happened every time, but it's happened many times, probably more often than not.
I won't even get into déjà vu, although I experience it a lot, I just don't think it's worth mentioning if you can't distinctly remember when or
where you've had a premonition.
