This one falls into the probably confirmation bias column, but does anyone ever buy lottery tickets? Well, I seldom to rarely do. Except for one day,
when I was near flat broke. I had about five bucks left in my wallet, and was going to get a soda or something. But as I got to the counter, I got a
vision in my head, of the scratch off display, but in my head, they were all marked with red Xs, except for one, which in my mind's eye had a green
check mark on it.
Well, I bought the ticket that corresponded to the one I was picturing in my mind, and I'll be damned, I won around fifty dollars.
It was weird. For a while, I convinced myself I had somehow willed it into happening, or maybe somehow "saw" it. But it was most likely coincidence.
