Minor coincidences are a normal part of life. Whether it's running in to an ex at the corner store when you're covered in Cheeto-dust, or finding out a childhood friend is staying at the hotel as you, we've all had the experience of feeling like the universe is playing a prank on us. But some coincidences are so wild and unlikely that they can challenge everything we believe in (or don't believe in), since the only explanation seems to be that there is some kind of cosmic force controlling everything... and it's trolling us?!
In a popular Reddit thread, someone asked: "What was the biggest coincidence that made you question the fabric of reality?"
