This actually sounds quite a bit like the Gambler's Fallacy (well, maybe more the Inverese Gambler's Fallacy see link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gambler's_fallacy#Reverse_fallacy)
Basically, it's like thinking that streaks mean something when in realitly the outcome of a coin-toss is complete independent of the results of all previous coin-tosses. Just because a coin lands heads 10 times in a rown, doesn't mean the universe holds any memory of it happening to 'push' it one way or the other. Just as a 'streak' of a color doesn't actually mean anything. Streaks will happen eventually, just remember you always have a 50/50 chance.
Science b******. That's a plural word btw.
