Uri Geller needs no order, he bends spoons, warps time and reads minds – waffles Nov 26 '09 at 19:17
brilliant! :))) – George Profenza May 30 '10 at 21:47

I don't think it'll happen.

I'll take my future-seeing badge now.

Sure, but I think it will happen after: Add a “Magic 8-Ball” feature to the Ask a Question page, I think it is a pre-requisite for your magical feature.

You can have the "OMG-Lucky!" badge, or "Fixed 100 syntax errors" badge.

I hope you do not mind me tagging this as always-friday-in-iceland, someone tells me it is always Friday there, and it explains many – waffles Nov 25 '09 at 23:58

Why is it I keep getting the "OMG-not-Lucky!" for inheriting projects that have 100 syntax errors... (I consider PHP warnings to be equivalent.) – Question-Failed Jul 30 '10 at 9:06

I think I know what Oscar might mean. I ran into this situation:

How to get value from match in actionscript? Has Anyone show me an example?

It's such a minor thing, but: from a 'technical' point of view, clearly "OMG-Lucky" badge for me. The truth behind it is that a couple of weeks before I personally ran into a "get value from match" situation.

When I spotted that, it clicked and I felt that the person asking experienced the same frustration(being so close, but not quite there) I went through with the same issue.

'Technically', sure, 'lucky' is the correct term, but I don't believe there is any technical way of measuring intuition, or how people that don't know each other anonymously 'connect' based similar frequencies/intensities of emotions/wavelengths.

Call me a hippie, but this stuff exists.

There will never be a badge for that though :) Not only it not something to measure, but because for a stackoverflow badge would be meaninngless compared to the confirmation that one's emotion driven intuition won over one's analytical thinking.
