Coincidence? [Jul. 29th, 2008|01:32 pm]
Edward O'Connor

Earlier this morning, and despite many sensible reasons not to, California's Department of Motor Vehicles decided to issue me a driver's license.

Shortly afterwards, Southern California was rocked by an earthquake.

Did your new driver's license fall through a fault crack during the earthquake?

Because that, my friend, would be The Coincidence of the year. :-P

I have to say though, that is quite funny.

Wow. I wonder what will happen when California finally issues mine?

I've only failed behind the wheel 10 times so far.

Post hoc ergo propter hoc!

(You laugh, but I actually heard someone use this phrase to describe why something was obviously true and then insist that it wasn't a fallacy.)

Insisted, incidentally, because "otherwise why would we have a Latin phrase for it?"

Clearly causation! We all know Ted will eventually cause the Apocalypse, too.

Is that icon Willow, or something else?
