20. I love the remote watch fixing thing

...and they'd usually ask people to call or write if their watch/clock started working.

So, you have thousands and thousands of people all pulling out a watch or clock that hasn't been handled in a while and, sure enough, a subset of those watches are going to start ticking just from being handled.

Gellar was a master at "taking credit" for coincidences or unusual things that would happen around him. You just keep pointing them out, and people start to think "wow, all kinds of things happen when he's around".

I learned to "fix" broken lights in parking lots that way. Whenever you drive by some place and a light comes on, point it out to your passenger. They'll start noticing it on their own after a while. Works great at dusk.

"I mean, sure the lights come on automatically, but notice how often they do it when I pass by!"
