    A coincidence? or something more sinister?

    INCREDIBLE historical coincidences sent in to us by Ross Macpherson:

    * Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846; John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.
    * Lincoln became President in 1860; Kennedy in 1960.
    * Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
    * Both wives lost a child while living in the White House.
    * Both were shot on a Friday.
    * Both were shot in the head.
    * Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy; Kennedy's secretary was called Lincoln.
    * Both Presidents 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 had three names; both names are composed of 15 letters.
    * Lincoln was shot at the theatre named Ford.
    * Kennedy was shot in a car called Lincoln, made by Ford.
    * Booth and Oswald were murdered before their trials.
    * Lincoln was shot in a theatre and the assassin ran to a warehouse; Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and the killer ran to a theatre.

    Considering Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't the person who Murdered Kennedy and it was infact the CIA it could give a reason as to why there are so many similarities due to LHO's framing.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Word. It is a bit coincidental you have to admit but I guess they're just trying fervently to prove it wrong.

    In that instance maybe but in so many of the other urban legends proven to be false/true on that site, they would likely save lives. So I'll let them have this one.
