    I found this today in a class, turns out the kid that sat in front of me was looking at it at the exact same time.

    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.

    The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters.

    Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

    Both of their wives lost their children while living in the White House.

    Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

    Both were shot in the head.

    Both were shot with one bullet.

    Both were rumored to be killed in a conspiracy.
    Neither was confirmed to be a conspiracy.

    Lincoln was shot in the Ford Theater.
    Kennedy was shot in a card made by the Ford Motor Company (a Lincoln no less)

    Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
    Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln.

    Both were assassinated by Southerners.

    Both were succeeded by Southerners.

    Both successors were named Johnson.

    Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
    Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.
    Their first names both contain six letters.

    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 comprise fifteen letters.

    Booth ran from the theater and was caught in a warehouse.
    Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theater.

    Both assassins were assassinated before their trials.

    The only complete filming of Kennedy's assasination was shot by Abraham Zapruder.
    The only complete account of Lincoln's assasination was written by John Zelfindorfer.

    A week before Lincoln was shot, he was with friends in Monroe, Maryland.
    A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with his friend Marilyn Monroe.

    Lincoln's last child, Tad, had his funeral held on July 16, 1871.
    Later he was exhumed and moved to a different grave site.
    Kennedy's son JFK Jr. was lost at sea on July 16, 1999.
    Later he was found, brought up, and then re-burried at sea.

    wow...this is overwhelming evidence that either history repeats itself, or the presidency is cursed. or entirely coincidental, though those facts are too numerous to be such.

    definitely interesting...

    I remember stumbling across this. The coincidence is fascinating.

    d!ckhead has the same number of letters as f@rtface. Isn't that peculiar? It's like the Twilight Zone.

    It's the same thing as the 9/11 coincidences with the number 11. It disproves very little and tells us that they were coincidences. DUH!


    Booth ran from the theater and was caught in a warehouse.
    Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theater.

    Another "coincidence" that is both inaccurate and superficial.

    Booth shot Lincoln in a theatre of the type where live stage shows are held, then fled across state lines before being trapped and killed in a tobacco shed several days later.

    Oswald shot Kennedy from (not in) a textbook warehouse, then remained in Dallas and was caught and taken alive in a movie theater a little over an hour later.

    Tell me how that is "inaccurate and superficial?"
