I recall Randi himself recalling a possibly paranormal event of his own. His home was broken into and a rare, limited publication technical book stolen. He asked around his friends to find a replacement and @six months later someone from another city or district bought one and sent it to him. The copy turned out to be the one that had been stolen, still with Randi's notes in. Some might expalin this as a connection or karma. Randi dismissed this as a fluke, quoting it as an example of extreme probability.

What bothered me is that there was only this immediate dismissal. Thinking it through, it occurred to me that as this was a rare book on the market the only copy likely to be up for sale would be the stolen one, burgulars being no lovers of text. All the others would have remained in their libraries. Plus Randi had his friends hunting down any copy. The odds therefore would not be so extreme, and the explanation not so tenuous. But Randi had not reached this obvious conclusion because he had never thought to investigate the situation seriously, only to dismiss.
