According to the Forbes article, if you read the quantum state of a particle here, you can learn the corresponding state of the remote particle, no matter the distance. It would seem like this could allow you to gain knowledge about distant events, provided you knew the particle on the other end was being used to influence those events. For example, suppose you had a particle here on Earth and your twin had another entangled particle on Alpha Centauri. Suppose the two of you had worked out a system where each of you would consult the particle as an Oracle for major life decisions. If this was the case, you and your twin would know what life choices the other was making instantly, without having to communicate.
So the upshot of this is that a sufficiently advanced alien race could be keeping tabs on Earth from very far away by having seeded entangled particles throughout our planet eons ago. Since our actions are based on random events (the weather, the stock market, random number generators, synaptic activity in our brains, etc) such an alien race could know an incredible amount of information about how we operate by consulting their entangled particles.
So, think about it. We are being watched. Each random occurrence on Earth gives our alien overlords the ability to spy on us, while themselves being so far away that we could never see them. I bet you'll never look at a Magic-8 Ball or a coin flip the same way again.
