Options April 23, 2014: #21 - Beshert with Grandma Phyllis

Thirty years ago, Grandma Phyllis was flying home on a plane, and she realized something that was impossible for her to know. Her pipes back home on Long Island had burst. When the plane landed, she called her daughter and learned that her premonition was correct. How did that happen? Today on the show, Andrea and her Grandma Phyllis discuss seemingly unexplainable phenomena? Give us a call at 21-209-9368

Special thanks to Nick the Bard for call screening!

I've had this kind of thing happen with a good deal of accuracy, but it only seems to go with girls I'm all into for whatever reason :/

Hmmmm… I have lots of odd coincidences in my life. But some of them are honestly just too intense & personal for me to share in a forum like this now. But this is a good show already! Please, no Randy.

I once guessed the nationality of the poker dealer at my table with no hints, only going on perhaps the tiniest of accident and appearance.

I guessed Basque.

I was correct.
Avatar    Wed. 4/23/14 7:30pm Danne D:

no real dating component to that story - but pretty much the strangest correct guess of anything I ever made.
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:31pm Brigitte:

I have had an excess of bizarre coincidences. Boy, Oh Boy!!

I see Emil's referenced on Wikipedia -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravastar

Seems he's at Los Alamos these days.

You felt her mental wavelength associating that dish with the word "Spivey"--that's why it was the first thought!
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Congrats quinn!
And cheers to on-Air baby nursing--this is WFMU!

Recommended reading: "The Trickster and the Paranormal" by George Hansen. Excellent survey of the subject.
Avatar    Wed. 4/23/14 7:39pm common:

i was in a band long ago playing a show. the guitar player and i never looked at each other-cuz we were rocking - and i was looking down playing drums and he threw his guitar toward me and i stood up and caught it and continued his line and i did not know how to play guitar. i believe in synchronicity and brain melds. specially when you're doing something intense.
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@common: Whoa! SWEET! :D
That proves it!
Avatar    Wed. 4/23/14 7:42pm common:

@matt: hee hee! it felt really normal...and then a bit strange.
  Wed. 4/23/14 7:45pm Cliff:

Thanks for the book recommendation Robert, it looks interesting.

Hello Andrea, I have a story. From 2009-2011 I was in a LTR with a man. Our relationship progressed to where he was sleeping over. One night, I woke up with a jolt with an unreal feeling that he was cheating on me. I had no prior pretext to believe this. It turned out to be the truth. He had been seeing another younger man. I can't explain the reason I woke up with this feeling. My mom said it was Devine Intervention. I don't know what it was.
Avatar    Wed. 4/23/14 7:47pm Danne D:

I gotta go folks :) Have a good night :)
Bye Oh Bye :)
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:47pm Nick the Bard:

the one time I had something really heavy like tis happen, I was down in the basement sorting stuff, and just out of nowhere, I get a feeling to go check my IM's on the comp (strong enough to actually knock me forward a bit). I ignored it, because we had a ladder to get out of the basement at the time (we were getting the stairs replaced). When I did go up, there was an IM from someone that I should have gone to check, and, well, yeh, not that great of things happened afterward :/
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:47pm Matt from Springfield:

You could say, that everything feels "normal", until you start to "think" about it! :)
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:47pm Matt from Springfield:

See ya Danne!
  Wed. 4/23/14 7:48pm quinn:

There is a whole subreddit devoted to these stories -- http://www.reddit.com/r/Glitch_in_the_Matrix/
Avatar    Wed. 4/23/14 7:49pm common:

bye danne. yes, matt. i like thinkin, but feelin and experiencing is better.
  Wed. 4/23/14 7:49pm Robert:

Cliff, I got it directly from the author, whom I'd been introduced to by some of my NJ friends. Too bad I haven't seen him in a while.

The other guy I cited on the phone, Bob Wilson, I got to meet a few times too, once via those same friends. I was already an acquaintance of his co-author, Bob Shea.

it is the water
we are all mostly water
water is a computer
it remembers everything it ever encounters
If it did not evaporate and return to the earth as rain, it would lose it's mind. It is the only thing that exists in a gas. liquid and solid form in all of nature. It explains intuition, miracles and just what you are now talking about.
Look what you have done to my water!! : )
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, they're calling the "spammer" at the end of last week's playlist! :)
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:52pm Matt from Springfield:

"Spellmer"? "Spellcamer"?

“There is a whole subreddit devoted to these stories” What is there not a whole Subreddit devoted to something?
Avatar Wed. 4/23/14 7:53pm Matt from Springfield:

That'll cost ya some serious cryptocoin...
  Wed. 4/23/14 7:53pm Robert:

I could've told stories about the 23s & 17s that dogged me for a while, and how thru act of will and help of others, I temporarily changed that to 19s. I could've told of my adventures in seither. I've got a load of stories like these about myself & others near me.

@Jake: If there isn't one, there soon will be.

After this, I will try Italian gnocchi for the first time!
I will be a gnocchi agnocchstic no longer!

Yo Grandma Phyllis kicks it! Sometimes it is meant to be, that's just how it goes.
