7. Mark Twain and Halley’s Comet
Mark Twain was born on the day of the appearance of Halley’s Comet in 1835 and died on the day of its next appearance in 1910.
He himself predicted this in 1909 when he said: “I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it.”
8. Three strangers on a Train, with complementary last names
“In the 1920s, three Englishmen were traveling separately by train through Peru. At the time of their introduction, they were the only three men in the railroad car.
Their introductions were more surprising than they could have imagined. One man’s last name was Bingham, and the second man’s last name was Powell. The third man announced that his last name was Bingham-Powell. None were related in any way.”

9. Two brothers killed by the same taxi driver, one year apart
“In 1975, while riding a moped in Bermuda, a man was accidentally struck and killed by a taxi. One year later, this man’s bother was killed in the very same way. In fact, he was riding the very same moped. And to stretch the odds even further, he was struck by the very same taxi driven by the same driver – and even carrying the very same passenger!

10. Two Mr. Brysons, same hotel room
“While on a business trip sometime in the late 1950s, Mr. George D. Bryson stopped and registered at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. After signing the register and being given his key to room 307, he stopped by the mail desk to see if any letters had arrived for him.
“Indeed there was a letter, the mail girl told him and handed him an envelope addressed to Mr. George D. Bryson, room 307. This wouldn’t be so odd, except the letter was not for him, but for room 307’s just-previous occupant – another man named George D. Bryson.”

11. Twins brothers, same heart attack
“John and Arthur Mowforth were twins who lived about 80 miles apart in Great Britain. On the evening of May 22, 1975, both fell severely ill from chest pains. The families of both men were completely unaware of the other’s illness. Both men were rushed to separate hospitals at approximately the same time. And both died of heart attacks shortly after arrival.”

12. A novel that predicted the Titanic’s destiny, and another ship that almost followed
“Morgan Robertson, in 1898, wrote “Futility”. It described the maiden voyage of a transatlantic luxury liner named the Titan. Although it was touted as being unsinkable, it strikes an iceberg and sinks with much loss of life. In 1912 the Titanic, a transatlantic luxury liner widely touted as unsinkable strikes an iceberg and sinks with the great loss of life on her maiden voyage.
In the Book, the Month of the Wreck was April, same as in the real event. There were 3,000 passengers on the book; in reality, 2,207. In the Book, there were 24 Lifeboats; in reality, 20.
“Months after the Titanic sank, a tramp steamer was traveling through the foggy Atlantic with only a young boy on watch.
It came into his head that it had been thereabouts that the Titanic had sunk, and he was suddenly terrified by the thought of the name of his ship – the Titanian. Panic-stricken, he sounded the warning. The ship stopped, just in time: a huge iceberg loomed out of the fog directly in their path. The Titanian was saved.”
13. The 21st, a bad day for King Louis XVI
“When King Louis XVI of France was a child, he was warned by an astrologer to always be on his guard on the 21st day of each month. Louis is so terrified by this that he never did business on this day. Unfortunately, Louis was not always on his guard.
“On June 21st, 1791, following the French revolution, Louis and his queen were arrested in Varennes, whilst trying to escape France.
On September 21st, 1791, France abolished the institution of Royalty and proclaimed itself a republic. Finally on January 21st, 1793, King Louis XVI was executed by guillotine.”
