There's one word that may explain it: karma. :-)

A couple of years ago, I bought a scanner that I couldn't use with my
computer running FreeBSD. When I stopped at a charity garage sale,
for a wildlife sanctuary, I happened to have the scanner in my car;
instead of returning the scanner for a refund, I donated it to the
wildlife sanctuary. This spring, I went to another garage sale at the
same place, and guess what I found for sale, very reasonably priced?
An HP ScanJet III with a SCSI interface. :-)
