    I mean like a anything... An unexpected bonus, finding a £5 note on the bus, winning a prize, contest, raffle, lottery etc

    I got an enormous surprise when the HMRC sent me £800 I tax I had overpaid. I didn't even apply for this or anything, it just said..."you have overpaid tax, we worked it out, here's £800".

    Found a few 20p coins in swimming lockers when I used to go swimming. That's about as far as my luck goes.

    I found a £10 note just sitting there in there middle of a busy road near my shopping centre saying "somebody save me!". It was a little bit windy but it still sat there as if partly glued to ground. I had to wait for the traffic to clear to jump to get it. Luckily it didn't fly away!

    1.3 million views => £200 ?!

    That's a CPM of around $0.25 but YouTube is normally around $1.00 - $1.25. Really poor income on that one.
