UG Forum – Historical Coincidences

Interesting History Lesson?

Heres something a lil creepy i stumbled upon,

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 their children 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.’

Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

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.

Coincidence?

  1. I just thought i’d clarify a couple of things here:

    Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
    John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946. – Not quite as weird as you would think given the 4-year cycles.

    Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
    John F Kennedy was elected President in 1960. – again, given the above, less ‘spooky’ more ‘well, yeh, that makes sense’

    Both were particularly concerned with civil rights. – understandable given the events during the times in which they lived.

    Both wives lost their children while living in the White House. – very badly worded, lincoln lost children through disease while president, Kennedy lost a premature child two days after birth while president, again not greatly spooky.

    Both Presidents were shot on a Friday. – nope, kennedy was shot on a thursday
    Both Presidents were shot in the head – from behind, while seated, not much in the way of choice

    Now it gets really weird.

    Lincoln ’s secretary was named Kennedy. – yes
    Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln . – nope

    Both were assassinated by Southerners. – one was a northerner, neither were regionally motivated
    Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson. – common sense to have southern running mates during these times, Johnson being a very common name at the time (and today)

    Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln , was born in 1808.
    Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908. – again, given the average age of senators, this is not surprising

    John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln , was born in 1839. – nope
    Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939. – yes

    Both assassins were known by their three names. – nope, John Wilkes and Lee Oswald were their preferred choice of address
    Both names are composed of fifteen letters. – ooooh, again only if you use their full names and even then their first and last names do not have the same number of letter

    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.’

    Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse. – read ‘tobacco shed’
    Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

    Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials. – nope, Booth in ‘showdown’ with police, Oswald by member of public while in custody
    And here’s the kicker…

    A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe , Maryland – maybe
    A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe. – unlikely as Monroe had been dead for over a year

    Wazzup! Bored in class here, decided to introduce myself.

    Anyways, I had this urge to talk about an event. Here is what happened After classes I took the bus, I hadn’t eaten lunch so I took a detour to this fast food joint and ordered a sandwitch and took it to a table and sat down when it suddenly occured to me they didn’t charge me!

    Yeah evidently they were super busy and distracted because there was this manager/investor type looking around everywhere and talking to them. So I was just about to go up to the counter and say I hadn’t paid but then I realized if I did that the owner guy might get mad at the employees. So I just left. What should I have done do you think?

    • Introduce yourself then =)

      I think you should have waited will the owner dude was gone/elsewhere, then discreetly inform the employees. haha.. My opinion =)
