Botcheck Urban Legend (in Off-topic)

Has anybody else noticed that the indicative words on the botcheck [both the words] can at times have an uncanny connection to real-life circumstances of the player? Like, for instance, I'm thinking of this girl, and then I get the botcheck love/ wins; or another time with another lass it was much/ pain.

Beats reading the astro page anyday ;)

Botcheck horoscopes? I see a possible business venture... ;)

One of the greatest skills humans possess is finding patterns where none exist :)

BTW, I'm back online. Kind of.

given a first word, how many percent of potential "second" word that you would consider a pattern? 1%? 0.25%?

Even if it is 0.25%, that's 1 in 400, given that we each do 400 in a week or so (unverified), we are bound to see "patterns", because we only notice them when they have some "pattern" and the actual observed pattern will be more than what it is.

hmmm, after reading this the next botcheck was warm pus, after some though i do have a fingernail that might be getting infected or ingrown!

the very next botcheck was bias moan, which pretty much sums up a recent thread on these forums.
