Good point, that last one there. I used to argue with MGM Lion, Gawd bless 'im, about the fact that coincidences are no different in terms of likelihood than events that we don't see as coincidences. The mundane and thoroughly unremarkable fact that I just sniffed exactly as I typed "events" is no more likely a juxtaposition, on the face of it, than my hearing the chap on the radio saying the word "sniffed" just as I typed "sniffed." Sorry, I love to digress...
