It Is A Double Yolk Coincidence

six double yolk eggsA bit more light hearted today. It's about Fiona Exon, from Cumbria in England, who was about to make some scrambled eggs for breakfast. As she cracked open the eggs into a bowl each one was double yolked. Yes, as she broke the full six pack of eggs each was the same.

"Erm, so what," you might say, "Is that really a coincidence story?"

Well sort of. The British Egg Information Service reckons this is extremely rare, a bit like hen's teeth. They reckon that finding one double yolk egg has odds of just 0.1 per cent (i.e. 1000 to 1). So finding every egg in a standard box of six this way is odds of ... I'm not exactly sure, but one expert mentioned it being 1 trillion to one (providing the eggs were picked at random to fill the box), but this does seem a bit over the top.

So what am I trying to say? I guess I'm actually putting a case forward for those who oppose any coincidence as being meaningful. If you can get a pack of six double yolk eggs then any coincidence is also possible somewhere in the world.

The thing is though, despite what I've just said, I still believe that some coincidences are meaningful enough to be considered as synchronicity. Yes, there really are messages from the universe to help us along our way. That is, if we can be bothered to consider them properly.
