In which spirits of capriciousness take pity on James Ng…

(Via Hot Air Headlines) …by allowing him to reacquire the engagement ring he dropped out of a hot air balloon while proposing:

Over the following week, as his fiancée proudly wore a $9 (£5.50) Wal-Mart ring on her engagement finger, Mr Ng and a friend cut through brambles with machetes, searching for the camera bag.

“We had maps and a very clear plan of all the ground we needed to cover,” said Mr Ng.

After seven arduous days of searching the three-mile-square area, they found the camera bag. The only thing still inside it was the £2,000 ring.

Don’t bother buying lottery tickets in the future, Mr. Ng. You’ve used up your quota of blind luck.
