I don't believe in serendipity, but how cool is it when you're writing your novel, set in the early seventies in Rhode Island, and you research "early 70s walkie talkie" because you want to see what one looked like, and the first hit is a picture of a 1973 walkie talkie, listed for sale on the Rhode Island Craig's List from May 5, 2012? I didn't buy it, although maybe I should have. How fun would it be turn it on and talk into it to see whether someone would answer? (Of course, this sounds like another story all together. But I think I'm going to write it, nonetheless.)
