My computer's power cord dies this weekend. $72.
Not 24 hours after purchasing a new cord, the rear wheel of my bicycle, my vehicle for getting almost everywhere during the week, is stolen. Dollar amount yet unknown.
I predict that my car will blow up in 45 minutes, after which I get fired from my job.
I believe that either I am being punished for some unknown crime, or something incredibly wonderful is about to happen to me and the universe wants to maintain equilibrium.
