Alright for a really long time I never believed in any form of paranormal things, no psychic crap, mind reading, talking to the dead, ghosts..nothing..but I really want to know whats going on with me. I have dreams that are really short and random. About a month ago I had a dream that I had just gotten home from the dentist and I was talking to my dad about something non-related while watching a show I had never seen before on tv and then the dream just ends. Today it happened, right down to every non important detail including my bag of stuff from the dentist and the odd tv show that I didn't know existed. This happens A LOT! The other thing is a weird useless talent I guess. Whenever I'm playing my ipod I can sort of predict the next song. Which sounds stupid but the other day I had my ipod hooked up in my car and one song ended and there was a pause before the next song and I started singing a random song in my head and then it started playing..this happened 5 times in a row and my ipod was on shuffle so its not like I just memorized the order. I feel like a crazy person just thinking that I could possibly have some sort of mind power. My aunt is a medium and my family always thought she was a little nuts, including myself. Well what do you think? Is there any possibilities that some people have a little extra brain power than others?

Keep in mind that interesting things are more likely to be remembered, so for example, you take notice when you have a dream and it happens to the detail, but you might not remember all the times when you have dreams that don't end up happening. I've had dreams happen like that too.
Also, keep in mind that unlikely events can still have a finite probability, so it is possible that after enough time, they will eventually happen.
For example, the number of songs on an iPod is finite. If you have the music on shuffle and leave it to play, it will play through each song once in a random order (and then go through the list again randomly if the repeat option is enabled, or stop if it is not), so if your iPod has been playing for a while, it further reduces the number of possibilities and thus increases the chance of you being right. How much time do you spend listening to music?
