Serendipity

Yahoo's headline at the moment is about a newlywed couple who met when the chap decided to SMS a random number floating in his head. I'll bet if Hollywood made a movie about it, it would become one of my favourites. Especially if John Cusack played the lead role.
Apparently,
A British man has met and married a 22-year-old woman after, by his own account, dreaming of her phone number and then sending her a text message.
David Brown, 24, says he woke up one morning after a night out with friends with a telephone number constantly running through his head. He decided to contact it, sending a message saying "Did I meet you last night?."
Random recipient Michelle Kitson was confused and wary at first but decided to reply and the two began exchanging messages. Eventually they met and fell in love.
"It was really weird but I was absolutely hooked," Kitson told the Daily Mail newspaper. "My mum and dad kept saying 'But he could be an axe murderer', but I knew there was something special about it."
After a long courtship, the oddly matched couple -- he's six foot seven inches tall and she's five foot four -- have just returned from their honeymoon in the Indian resort of Goa.
A love-struck Brown said: "I've no idea how I ended up with her number in my head -- it's only a few digits different from mine."
That's... sweet. Maybe I should try it.

Uh...huh... hmmm... ri-i-ight.

here's my explanation. it was a fluke. And what made it such a convenient fluke was the fact that it happened in a place with a smaller population, you know? And most cellphone owners and regular users fall within that age range. it would never work here. Least of all with us. We are much too suspicious. And our IQs are much too high.
