so here's a post... overdue but here
I just had one of those coincidences... this one should have freaked me out but I think it didn't because I've gotten so used to them...

Here's what happened. I went into my office to get my laptop and when I sat down to unplug it under the desk, I bumped the cord which caused the laptop to slide off the desk... I didn't realize that the laptop had fallen but I happened to have my hands out and when it touched my hands (both of them) I realized that it had fallen and reacted quickly enough that it didn't leave my hands...

Thirty seconds later, I was carrying my laptop from my office into the livingroom and I turned to turn off the light and in doing so my Droid fell out of my shirt pocket and I caught it as it fell... I realized it was falling when it hit my hand and I caught it.

Thinking about it now, maybe I am a little freaked out... I'm staying away from my Kindle Flame.

You have reflexes like mine.

Yes, I did, Thank You. I've had a few others who noticed it too and notified me and I've seen it too. I contacted GoDaddy, my website host to tell them about it and they told me that they scan their servers regularly to find these things and said that it might just be a link from someone subscribing to it and suggested that i pay them a few $$ more/month for some other scanning feature... I'm in the process of checking all the files on the site and will have to call them back and hopefully talk to a more knswledgable-helpful service person when I get the chance. (been really busy lately)...

quick reflexes, or maybe you were already aware of the possible fall of the droid and therefore had an even quicker reaction?

but, I didn't know I had the Droid in my pocket... I normally don't carry it at home, it's in it's charger and if in my shirt pocket, the pocket is buttoned. but the subconscious–I think works on these types of things.

It is time for additional positive "coincidences"...

Swami Beyondanada calls these freaky coincidences "synergies." Wish I could still find his essay on the subject; you'd get a kick out of it for sure.
