Weird coincidences keep happening to me. My buddy, who is a math teacher, says it is all just the mathematical odds playing out.
I’m not always so sure.
Do you think the universe reveals things to us serendipitously, or are the things that happen to us just due to mathematical chance?

The complainants in the lawsuit received the lovely gift of cancer from using RoundUp on their property. As reported in the blog post, the cancer-causing chemical in RoundUp is Glyphosate and if you take a look at this map, you can see where it is banned around the world.
You will notice that 10 Canadian provinces have banned the stuff for cosmetic lawn care, i.e. killing dandelions (one of the most anti-oxidant rich “weeds” around). More about dandelions in this article.
I commented on mypbbooks article, saying “Meanwhile some idiots here drive across the border to purchase the stuff. It’s banned here for a reason, folks.”
I was referring to Canadians driving into the U.S. just to get their hands on a product that is banned here for very good reason.
Here comes the weird coincidence. I finished blogging, shut down my laptop, and went outside to appreciate what had turned out to be a beautiful day. I opened a beer and the neighbourhood gang began to congregate in my driveway as they often do.
It wasn’t long before my neighbour (and good friend) received a text. It was from his Dad. His dad was on his way over with some of the “good stuff” to put on his lawn. The “good stuff” was the cancer-causing RoundUp, made by the plaintiff in the billion-dollar lawsuit I had read about not even a couple hours earlier.
As the adults drank alcohol while the kids played with jump ropes, the weird smell of the cancerous poison wafted onto my property. I was overcome with many emotions. The whole scene made me realize how very complicated this world is.
