Some say there are no such things as coincidences, but when you start to think like that, things get all kinds of creepy! There are some crazy coincidences that baffle even the most skeptics of minds out there, but what do you think? Are they simply just that – coincidences? Or is there something more going on under the surface?!
THE PREDICTION ABOUT THE TITANIC
The “unsinkable” Titanic sunk in 1912, but back in 1898, fantasy writer Morgan Robertson wrote Futility, which seemed to eerily predict the sinking of a similar ship named “The Titan”.
Two brothers from Bermuda Island were struck by that Bermuda Triangle curse. One was hit by a taxi and sadly died. A year later, his brother – 17, just as he was – was also hit by that very same taxi carrying the same passenger… he died, too.
DAMNED AT THE HOOVER DAM
When building the Hoover Dam, George Tierney was one of the first to sadly die on December 20th, 1922. The last person to die working on the impressive landmark was Patrick Tierney, his son – who also died on December 20th.
THE PSYCHIC SIMPSONS
In the year 2000, The Simpsons made a joke about Donald Trump becoming President. It sounded absurd, right? Well, it seems no one’s laughing now! As we all know, he’s now leader of the free world… and the cartoon even showed scenes from his campaign which looked just like reality. When life imitates art, huh?
Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, Jennifer Lawrence is the absolute doppelganger of Egyptian actress Zubaida Tharwat. Since the late Tharwat only died in 2016, it’s more than unlikely though, but the two are scarily similar! Did JLaw make a pact with the devil? Wow.
SOLDIERS MARK THE START TO END
The graves of British soldiers who were first and last to die in the First World War are just 6 meters apart, and their headstones face one another. This wasn’t in any way planned.
A TOTAL CAR CRASH
In 1895, in Ohio, two cars collided. Nothing weird about that in our century, but given that they were the only two cars in the entire state, we’d say that was pretty weird!
EDGAR ALLEN POE & HIS TIME MACHINE
The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket by Edgar Allan Poe tells the story of sailors whose ship sank and who survived by eating a ship boy called Richard Parker. It was only when this happened in real life 46 years later that people started to believe it was a true story…
MORE PRESIDENTIAL COINCIDENCES
Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy were more alike than you think. Both were killed by gunshot on a Friday, both had four kids, and, bizarrely, a friend named Billy Graham. They were both succeeded by Presidents named Johnson; each Democrats from the South.
Classical composer George Handel and musical legend Jimi Hendrix were actually neighbors – despite being separated by two centuries. Both lived in London on Brook St; Handel at 25, and Hendrix at 23. Perhaps there’s something in the air that made these two iconic?!
