    Okay, this has happened to me a number of times...

    For some reason, im singing a song that pops into my head, then i go to my car, turn the key... BOOM, the song is on the radio! [​IMG] COINCIDENCE! I THINK NOT... well maybe [​IMG]

    Anybody experience this phenomena as well?

    Sorry for this waste of valuable space, now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

    Get some multicolored felt pens, so when you wear the aluminum foil on your head to block those waves you look trip.

    Strange - I have the exact opposite; I put on the radio and it has the songs I *don't* want to hear.

    Or possibly the explanation is that you are always humming "Rock Your Body" by Justin Timberlake, and you turn on the radio to hear it . . .

    because that damn song is on every 10 minutes

    This kind of thing is cool.

    Here's something that happens to me very frequently....

    I'll be walking along and suddenly see someone I know. But wait. On closer look, it's not them, it just looked like them.

    Then maybe 2 or 3 minutes later, I'll round a corner or something...and there is the person I thought I saw a few minutes before.

    Now this doesn't just happen with people I bump into frequently, but often with people I haven't seen in ages.

    It's pretty nifty.

    But it's coincicdence.

    Coincidence is cool and fun, but I think we only notice it occasionally when the circumstances are right. As anyone who has read Robert Anton Wilson's work probably already knows, coincidences seem to happen more when we are thinking about them...at least on some level.

    In other words, the more you mull over this phenomenon, the more frequently it will seem to occur.

    Nick, I have the same superpower. I will often start humming a tune, turn on the radio and hear the same song pick up on the same exact verse that I was on! Throw out the "that song is always on the radio" theory because it has happened to me plenty of times with songs that have been out of circulation for years.

    My only question is how to harness this power for good instead of evil?[​IMG]

    I think that what is happening is that you are actually hearing that radio station being played somewhere nearby. I have had this happen where I am singing a song in my head and suddenly my friend will start whistling it out loud or singing it etc. Bizarre coinsidence? No...it was just that someone had a radio playing nearby that was barely audible.

    I think that is what is happening. Or maybe you are just possessed. [​IMG]

    Scott: That's a valid explanation, and i've thought about this too.. im 99.99999% sure i was not hearing the song. I dont listen to radio at home, and my neighbors dont listen to modern music. DON'T TAKE THIS AWAY FROM ME!!! [​IMG]
