Predictions against the odds

As if perfectly timed to illustrate the abstracted predictive power of human intuition, a lorry driver from Leeds wins the lottery for a second time — the odds for which are 283bn to 1, in case you were wondering. 

Stories about intuitive predictions aren't uncommon around lottery wins — obviously it's impossible to scientifically verify and any behavioural economist would point immediately to hindsight bias, but there maybe some evolutionary advantage served by an uncanny ability to predict future events.
