    Yes. It's like the Birthday Paradox. Some events seem highly unlikely but when you crunch the numbers they are in fact - and counter-intuitively - fairly likely. The chances of two friends thinking about each other (and one picking up the phone) are actually very high. This applies to the vast majority of such happenings.

    I agree with this with some empathy added maybe. Like how mothers are so attuned to their baby's needs that they can tell the difference between cries and predict when they are about to drop a poo bomb.

    I've often been able to trace these situations to more logical explanations. For example. When I've met a certain person, or spoke to a certain person at a certain time of the day, I usually seem to think about that person the next day around the same time. Like a biological clock. There's fresh memory referance that relates the time of the day with certain events, and sometimes people. If they have that same reference fresh in their mind. It is not illogical to think both people will think about each other at the same time.

    And that's possible just one of many possible explanations.

    Other people would call it telepathy. I'll remain skeptical however. :P

    The thought crossed my mind wether or not he was sarcastic. But since I wasn't sure I chose to take him serious in a most non-offending way. Safe is safe. :P

    Never choose. Either you know the facts or you do not know them.

    If you know the facts you do not need to choose.
    If you do not know the facts it is unwise to choose.

    I'm already not that talkative to begin with, but with that in mind I'd never open my mouth again regarding other peoples thoughts and minds. As it is something I can never be sure of.
