Synchronicity and Internet LOLZ

One of the things that entertains me is coincidence. When I was a cashier I always liked it when the total came to the same number as the current time. And one of the cool things about Twitter is that it is a nest of synchronicities. Every few days two or three tweeps will tweet about the same topic around the same time without realizing it - usually people who don't even follow each other so they have no idea. But today's was, for me, the funniest yet. Received at the same minute:
"Who needs an alarm clock when you have a cat that wakes you up at 6 every morning." ~ @INTP73

"morning for an early morning run...thinking of taking the cat with me and accidentally feeding it to a deer" ~ @WhyIsDaddyCryin
Two people, two cats, one early morning, shared irritation, and very different ways of expressing it.

No cats were harmed in the creation of this post.


  1. Ha! I love stuff like that on Twitter.

  2. Oh, I love stuff like that too! Like this morning when I first looked at the clock and it read 7:16--today's date. Cheap fun.
