    Conspiracy Theory?

    I read this interesting article today - a little trippy if you think too much about it.
    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.
    What are the odds?

    The coincidences are easily explained as the simple product of mere chance. It's not difficult to find patterns and similarities between any two marginally-related sets of data, and coincidences similar in number and kind can be (and have been) found between many different pairs of Presidents. Our tendency to seek out patterns wherever we can stems from our desire to make sense of our world; to maintain a feeling that our universe is orderly and can be understood.

    Still kinda cool.

    Those are pretty cool coinky dinks. i believe that the govt is into some really messed up things, but i can't see how they'd care about linking up such insufficient details, only for someone to later construct a list-as the one above- and cause mass query.

    still pretty neat though.

    It doesn't pay to rule out anything really.

    When you're as rich and powerful as the people who you're refering to, my guess is you can have a lot of time on your hands to conjure up shit that makes you snicker all throughout your old age.

    I won't believe any of this "eerie" shit unless a guy born in 2046 is elected in 2060 and shot in the head on a Friday by a guy with three names in a theatre converted into a Ford dealership. Now that would be something to talk about.

    That thing was read to us a few years ago in University. It was meant to show us an example of how somethings look related ( correlated) or co-incidental. It also shows how you can take things and make them seem a co-incidence, yet you cannot use them as a tool to predict future events.

    No, it's not a conspiracy, but simply an exercise to tax your brain.

    I agree - hindsight is 20/20.

    Why do we so rarely use it?
