No. Should I be? It's not much of a challenge. As someone else said, the odds of it happening are a LOT lower than winning the lottery, and that happens to someone almost every week, in several countries.

What else you got? :)

Holy shit, it’s archibald! Back after a year’s absence. This must surely be a sign from God!


Believe it scott. And the winning lottery numbers are 34, 23, 1, 42, 45 and 36.

Wait.. you won the lottery? Can I have some?

Scott, I'm god. I don't need to win lotteries.

I'm just giving you lot a heads up. It's part of a new policy initiative I'm trialling this month called 'Conversion Of Nonbelievers' (I think the acronym has a nice ring to it, even if I do say so myself). In January I'm reviving an oldie version of something similar, from just over a decade ago. It involves targeted coincidences. Opening a book at a random page and stuff. It was very successful. You have no idea how many suckers I landed with that one.

I am reminded of Uri Geller and his stopping clocks. He claimed on the tele he could stop clocks. As he did his CoN, the calls poured in to the TV station. Indeed clocks had stopped all over the country.


I think your CoN could catch on ... and it will be challenge for agnostics all over the world.

Welcome back to some arbitrary point in space.

I'm sure you've noticed that I didn't say which lottery, or when. ;)
