    If you're such a lucky person, why are you spending your evening sitting on here? Why have you not made millions and are not out banging loads of people?
    The thing is I am also really unlucky at times too, and I haven't really utilised my predictions yet.I'm usually really unlucky when I go against my predictions though for one reason or another. It's not like I am constantly thinking of things though. They are just impulse thoughts really. I'm going to start recording things down so I can see if there is really anything in it.

    All I'm saying is that ALOT of very unlikely things seem to happen in my life. I'm not even really saying I caused them or predicted them, but I definately think there is some sort of psychological aspect involved or something dictating these events, and that it's not just random events. Got any milk?

    Oh for the love of God, you are not psychic. You just happen to have had a few lucky guesses now and then. I bet there are several other times you have had these random thoughts, but they haven't turned out to be true. Hence, you have forgotten. You remember the correct ones, and this gives you an inaccurate idea of how often you are correct. Just like everyone else, in reality, you are not correct much more than the mathematical average of success in random guessing.

    Okay but I don't think of loads of very specific scenario's to get a good enough average. That's why I would like to know the chances of the milk incident happening, so say if something equally unlikely happens within say the next 2 weeks, I could safely say it is not random.

    :facepalm:

    No, you could not safely say it's not random. You are looking for patterns which are not there.

    Okay, so it is unlikely that you could accurately estimate the amount of milk in the bottle. However, it is infinitely more likely that you accurately estimated the amount of milk than the bottle than that you are psychic.

    And on other occasions you get it wrong.

    But you wouldn't remember those occasions as they're not significant.

    The wonder of probability and how the human mind interprets it.

      You weren't even able to predict the amount of milk required to quench your thirst. You're just bloody useless.
