What are the odds of these coincidences?
Coincidences can happen a lot of often, they are
meaningless. But there are some coincidences that are just too huge to ignore,
and it may leave one wondering if there was something more to the story.
Consider these stories of fantastic coincidences:
- In 1975 a man was riding his moped down the
street in Bermuda when he was hit by a taxi and killed. Exactly one year
later, the brother of the man riding the moped was driving exactly the same
moped. He was hit by the same taxi, which was being driven by the same taxi
driver and had the same passenger. The brother was also killed.O
- nce Thomas Jefferson had written the
Declaration of Independence, John Adams helped him to edit and perfect it.
The document was approved by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.
Exactly fifty years later on July 4, 1826, Jefferson and Adams both died.
- There was a man named Robert Fallon in 1858 who
was shot while playing poker by another player who accused him of cheating
to win the grand pot of $600. Because the money was now tainted, none of the
other players wanted to take it. They found a new player who didn’t know of
the unlucky money and he took the $600 and turned it into $2,200 in
winnings. The police stepped in at this point and demanded that the money be
given to Fallon’s next of kin. They then discovered that Fallon’s next of
kin was in fact, the new player. He was Fallon’s son and it had been seven
years since he had seen his father.
- In Detroit in the 1930s, a man named Joseph
Figlock was taking a walk down a residential street when a baby fell out of
a second-storey window onto Figlock. Figlock caught the baby and both he and
the baby were no worse for the wear. One year from that date, Figlock was
again walking down the street when the same baby fell from the same window
onto him. Once again, he returned the unharmed baby to its mother and
Figlock, who was also unharmed for the second time, continued on his way.
- Anne Parish was an American author and she was
looking through a bookstore with her husband one day in the 1920s. Coming
across a book titled, “Jack Frost and Other Stories,” she told her husband
how much she had loved the book as a child. Her husband thought he would buy
the book for her and picked it up. Opening the book, he found written on the
flyleaf, “Anne Parish, 209 N. Webster Street, Colorado Springs.” This book
was the exact book that Anne Parish had treasured so much as a young girl.
