06:32 pm: My car
Yesterday I found that the front windshield of my car had been smashed with one of those glass beer bottles.  The window did that shatter-but-still-intact thing, and whoever did it left a huge handful of pennies and nickels on the car, on top of the broken beer glass (??)  Liberty Mutual will cover the damage, but I'm wondering if I need to find a safer place to keep the car.  I suppose that having driven the car in the city for two and a half years, I should be glad that's the worst it's been through.  A bit weird that of all the cars in that lot, mine was the only one touched.  It's amongst the most innocuous looking cars, my silver Camry amongst a whole bunch of BMWs and few Lexuses and some other really very pricey and much (much) newer models.  And a lot of much shittier ones, too, but still...  Just random chance I guess.

>>Just random chance I guess.

Random chance? I deny the possibility. In another universe, you were the one who threw the beer bottle. So this is just Kopenhagen-karma™.

Or it might be silica spiders--tiny critters that burrow into glass and weave their webs. They catch the bugs that go splat against the windshield.

I once had my car stolen. Everything was recovered but all four wheels. :(

I had that happen to my car when I was in college--though ironically, while I was home on break and the car was parked in front of my parents' house. Had a big old crack across the windshield and had to get it replaced.

But Todd is right. It must be some sort of alternate universe karma. It's the most logical explanation.

Things like this happen around Halloween. I had an acquaintance once who had the same thing happen in college, except replace Camry with Truck and Beer Bottle with Pumpkin. (Seriously.)

I don't subscribe to karma, so I don't think you deserved it.

Does Liberty Mutual insure you against environmenal conditions and Acts of Todd?

Acts of Todd? Perhaps you are right. In my Many Universes Theory (Todd's MUT), it's possible I picked up her car and threw it at a beer bottle. Sorry, Sam, my bad!

Don't "subscribe to karma?" !!?! Karma is a wave function collapse. And the likelyhood of it occuring, its probability, is inversely proportional to your belief that it doesn't happen!

If that's the case then there's a whole lotta karma kicking off around me. Good thing I don't believe in it. ;)

I should dig up my old philosophy paper on why karma is bunk. But I bet it has all sorts of plot issues.

A month after I moved to Albuquerque, someone stole a wheel off my car. They were considerate enough to leave it on a block, though. I drove a really old Chevy Cavalier at the time. The wheels and tires weren't anything special. *shrug* I can only assume they really, really, really needed a wheel.
