I found this very interesting. ....



Have a history teacher explain this if they can.
Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.
Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost a child while living in the White House.
Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.
Now it gets really weird.
Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln.
Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.
Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.
John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.
Now hang on to your seat.
Lincoln was shot at the theater named "Ford."
Kennedy was shot in a car called "Lincoln" made by "Ford."
Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.
And here's the "kicker":
A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.
AND...................:
Lincoln was shot in a theater and the assassin ran to a warehouse...
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and the assassin ran to a theater...

So ... is that coincidence at it's finest or what???

For those 24 factoids that coincide there is an infinite (practically infinite) list of factoids that do not. It would be statistically impossible to have no coincidences considering there are millions of factoids that surround both men. In other words, there would be a similar list of coincidences between any two men if all the details surrounding their lives were known and looked at.

So ... now that we've seen that coincidences are a guarantee ..... why do people use those coincidences against others? Can you not think of any?

History has a way of repeating itself, one way or another. Whether by accident or design, the chicken will eventually cross the road. Whether he makes it all the way across is anyone's guess.

History does not repeat itself. " Those who don't learn from history...... are doomed to repeat it."

Are you certain about that? I have it on good authority that Kennedy liked to put his shoes on first.;)
