Life has a funny way of playing out. Has anyone ever noticed or experienced that?

For example, I BY CHANCE met my first girlfriend from when we were 14 a while back and BY CHANCE got back together with her, her father is BY CHANCE a kidney doctor and helped diagnose a dangerous kidney disease I BY CHANCE had at that exact time.

I'm not a big supporter of the idea of fate, or of a greater power designing our lives, but sometimes there are just too many "BY CHANCE"'s to seem plausible.

anybody else ever experience some weird coincedences like this that just seem to be too many to count as coincedences?

Nah - I go by maths and probability, I know what you mean but it doesn't scream fate etc to me.

By chance I was conceived in France, and now By chance I live there, and by chance it's crap.
You could argue I returned home.
Apart from that, not really.

Do you know what they call a quarter-pounder in Europe?

And no, I don't believe in fate.. really it makes no sense, what happens happens.. and if what is meant to be is all planned out, well then, we will never know so who cares?

We can do whatever we want, and sometimes weird stuff happens, but that's just life!

Life is riddled with coincidences, and that's all they are. Coincidences.

I by chance stumble upon a 30s edition of a fascist book, because I by chance walked into a run down charity shop, by chance had no money to buy it for the low price it was being sold for (I was planning to sell it), so returned the next day, but entirely by chance, in those 4 hours that the shop was open without me there, someone entirely by chance decided to walk in and buy it.

#10
I BY CHANCE find the number 13 everywhere.

However, I think that after a few coincidences involving this number, I've begun to look out for it, hence noticing it more often than other numbers.
#11
i never had any of these coincidences but also i've never watched for them, i just live life not thinking why or how, you have plenty of time for that when you die

There would be more people with not many / less happy coincidences.
You think of your experiences and come to this conclusion.
There would be lots of people who look at their own experiences and realize that they have to make their own fate.

Just different ways of looking at things.

Fixed.

There isn't an equivalent, there is just MacDonalds, where at least in France, it is known as Le Quarter Pounder.

I don't think that the last three things are really "by chance." You chose to start dating again, and her father chose to be a doctor.

yeah, but I didn't know that.

BY CHANCE the girl I chose to date had a doctor who BY CHANCE helped diagnose a disease I BY CHANCE happened to have at that exact moment.

it's too many coincidences for me, tbh. I don't know what to make of it.

it is riddled with coincidences.

one minute decision can affect your life so massively it's unreal, same for other things that you put loads of work into, yet hardly affect your life at all!

life is weird, and even if it is "fate" we don't know our own fate, so it's all good.

I like the idea of fate tbh, but I also like the idea of no fate, either way we're going to end up in certain ways and hopefully life will be good for us all.

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

Life is like a box of chocolates, etc etc.

I think Forrest was right when he said that. You don't know what to expect.
#37
For every guy who does go out with a girl who's father can cure his kidney disease, there are a thousand guys who get the disease, go out with a girl who's dad is an accountant and either get cured by regular doctors or die.

Coincidence is just the perspective of the statistical minority.
#40
I don't believe it's coincidence, shit just happens sometimes.

You can't argue against fate, because even if you say, "I take a right on this street instead of a left and miss out on meeting my true love, but I made that decision and I could have take a left if I wanted", no matter what, one could argue that everything was planned out, and that it was destined for you to take that right.

Yeah.

EDIT: Yeah, this thread made me miss out on writing a different (worse) assignment for English, and because of this I lost confidence and failed the class, didn't go to University, and now I'm gonna become homeless in the future, but I'll meet this homeless girl and her father will cure my AIDs that was passed down to me at birth. But maybe I didn't reply to this thread, go to university, and give my girlfriend (who I meet in university) AIDs and then feel like crap and become homeless and die of AIDs, because I never met the homeless girl.

Something like that. I got confused partway through though.
