    Some history for you

    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 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 theatre named 'Ford.'
    Kennedy was shot in a car called 'Lincoln' made by 'Ford.'

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

    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.

    I use to have a print out of this years ago and found it very interesting but I think it has been posted here before and a debunk site was posted.

    All you have to do now, is list all the differences between their lives ;)

    ..... also its full of minor but important inaccuracies

    for example:

    Lincoln was elected to congress in 1847 - not 1846
    John Wilkes Booth was born in 1838 not 1839



    Its few coincidences - made to seem more bizarre by other information massaged to 'appear' to be also linked ...

    btw Johnson is the second most popular name in the states ... currently 2 million plus of them atm ;) .... so when you work out the odds and remove the inaccuracies, it looks alot less 'spooky'

    Looks like the conspiracy theory web division have been a bit norty and manipulated the facts again ;)


    Note for mrtbag: I hate u, i hate u, i hate u .... I went off and looked up the actual biographies of those concerned to get the details .... then you go and post a link to data someone has nicely compiled already whilst I am posting this ;)

    ( I'm stuck in a hotel outside Paris ... bored :p )

    check this one out too...

    11 has become a very interesting number. It could be a coincidence, but in any case the following is very interesting.
    Have a read and decide for your self:
    1) New York City has 11 letters
    2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.
    3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened the Twin Towers in 1993)
    has 11 letters.
    4) George W Bush has 11 letters.

    This could be a mere coincidence.... could it be true???? Now here is where it gets interesting.
    1) New York is the state 11.
    2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight no 11.
    3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11
    4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers. Add this 6+5 = 11
    5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known, 9 + 1 +1 = 11
    6) The date is equal to the emergency number 911. Adding 9+1+1+= 11.

    Now this is very upsetting.
    1) The total number of victims inside the planes were 254. 2 + 5 + 4 =11
    2) The day September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year. Again 2 + 5 + 4 + = 11. Leaving 111 days left in the year.
    3) The tragedy of 3/11/2004 in Madrid also adds up to 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.
    4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers.

    Now for the last bit.
    Now got to Microsoft word and do the following!!!
    1. Open up Microsoft Word.
    2. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the towers.
    3. Highlight the Q33 NY.
    4. Change the font size to 48.
    Then change the actual font to WINGDINGS

    What do you think of the result ? Coincidence.

    Its our love of spotting patterns that are meaningless ... because we ignore all the many details that don't fit and only focus on few that do.

    example:

    3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11
    it could have been 29,38,47,56,65,74,83,92,110,119,128 etc etc etc

    why is it 9 + 2 ?
    what about
    9 - 2 = 7
    9 x 2 = 18
    9 / 2 = 4.5

    we ignore them because the answer is not 11 .... not because of mystism .. but because they are not convienent.

    If it had been 33 passengers someone would have said 3 x 3 = 9 ooooh
    september is the 9th month.

    There was a flight 11, 77 and 175

    there is no significance of 7+7 or 1+7+5 .... but oooh look if we say the first digit in 175 is taken away from the last 2 .... 7+5-1 = 11
    spooky :hiya:

    Tony Blair is 9 letters, and he lives at number 11, NOT 10 Downing street (apparently the living quaters are bigger).

    So 9/11. Was it all Tonys fault??
