    Collapsing Wave Function in Real Life

    Sometimes I feel like the universe has an energy pulsing through it. (The Wave). You need to be awake and aware to feel it, but its everywhere. It's a deja vu feeling in a very different way. The guy in the story below tapped into it, felt it, acted upon it, won, then the universe collapsed because it was experienced through his awareness. The universe must be a quantum computer because this is spooky what happened.

    "There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
    There is another theory which states that this has already happened." Douglas Adams

    Luck runs out: Man loses $92K in winning lottery tickets
    Associated Press

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The same lucky lottery numbers, 7-1-5, that won a Florida man tens of thousands of dollars over the years banked him another $92,000 payout last month. And then his luck ran out: the 184 winning tickets, each worth $500, were nowhere to be found.
    Walid Aboroomi searched high and low, even calling his garbage hauler to see if he might try to salvage the Florida Cash 3 tickets. (He couldn't — his trash is taken to an incinerator.)

    "Finally, I gave up. I was crying, crying like a baby," said the 50-year-old man.

    Aboroomi told The Tampa Tribune ( he has a ticket from the lottery machine showing 184 tickets were sold on May 28. But lottery officials told him he must have the tickets to get the cash.

    Aboroomi has had a lucky streak over the years, winning well over $1.5 million from various lottery games. In fall 2004, he won $500,000 in a scratch-off jackpot. The next year, he won $1 million playing the Virginia Million Dollar Madness scratch game. He later won $71,000 in the Virginia Pick 3 with his lucky numbers, and another $100,000 with those same numbers in 2007.

    "Yeah," Aboroomi said, "I'm not hungry."

    His latest luck with 7-1-5 came May 28, when he said he noticed the time: 7:15 p.m. A license plate in the parking lot had the number 715. Incidentally, that's his birthday: July 15.

    "Everything was 715," said Aboroomi, who emigrated from Israel 27 years ago. "It was blowing my brain."
