    Things too weird to just be a coincidence

    • Prince EWS having the word 'rib' in his last name
    • Mark Twain being born on the day of the appearance of Halley's Comet in 1835, and dying on the day of its next appearance in 1910
    • Stuart Broad looking and acting like a woman
    • Australia haven't conceded 400 in a ODI since the retirement of Mick Lewis

    This was a serious post:

    Nothing mentioned so far is too weird to be a coincidence.

    SS assisting with a church-based program.

    Any result where there was a bad umpiring decision involving certain cricket teams.

    These are never, ever coincidences, rather they are further evidence of enormous conspiracy (shout out to CC, you guys know who you are).

    Wow.

    Almost seems like you've got a bit of a victim mentality going on there.

    Unbelievable. Nath mentioned the victim thing in the Stuart Broad thread, and no one seems to have said a thing about it.

    I think I'm the victim of a conspiracy here, I'll just put my tin foil hat back on.

    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.

    The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters. 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 were shot in the head. Now this is interesting… Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy. Kennedy’s secretary was named Lincoln. Both were assassinated by Southerners. Both were succeeded by Southerners. Both successors were 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 comprise fifteen letters. Booth ran from a theater and was caught in a warehouse. Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught 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.
