I had a couple of experiences in a Chinese section of Malacca, Malaysia, that threw my skeptic mind for a loop. I was sitting in an outdoor cafe, sipping an iced coffee, thinking, "Gee, I really want an orange right now." Not 5 seconds later, a man walked up to me, proffered an orange, and said, "Happy new year." I knew better than to believe in hocus pocus, but yowza. Anyway, please avoid bludgeoning people.
