Coincidence.... or just plain spooky?

Post  southernbelle on Mon Jan 21, 2013 10:20 am

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...

I didn't know history teachers were specialists in phsycic attributation. I did know some who were not even specialists in history. Is that another coincidence? Wink An interesting 'weave' of unrelated facts which until the car manufacturer had a 'ring' of amusement to it. Come on - a car manufacturer. Why use that when the bloke in the second car guarding the left hand side of the convoy went by the name of Michael Ford-Mason -. Wow - here we go again. Neutral affraid

Wierdest of all, both murders took place in a country where any nutcase can go into a store and buy deadly assault-rifles and other military hardware as part of their constitutional right providing they are of age, fulfil residency criteria and do not have a criminal record.

Shame they can't have brains at the same time. There's 'freedoms' and there's anarchy. Put a gun in everybody's hand and the former goes to the last guy with the biggest gun. Now that's intelligent -! affraid
