    3. The sad demise of the Ebbin brothers.

    Neville and Erskine Ebbin both died at the tender age of 17 in an accident with a taxi. Here's the weird part. They both died a year apart while riding the same moped. So so much of a coincidence. But here's where it gets weirder. Both brothers were killed by the same taxi, which was being driven by the same driver and it was carrying the same passenger. Don't believe us? Here's a clipping from 1975 reporting the incident.

    4. Mark Twain's prediction.

    In 1909, the author of Tom Sawyer was quoted saying, "I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go out with Halley's Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: 'Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together'."Twain died of a heart attack on April 21, 1910, one day after the comet's closest approach to Earth.

    5. The former and present stars of Indian cricket have more than extraordinary talent in common.

    On December 28, 1999, Sachin Tendulkar scored a total of 1000 runs versus Australia in the 5th test on Melbourne Cricket Ground in the 19th innings. Exactly 15 years later, Virat Kohli also scored a total of 1000 runs versus Australia in the 5th test in the 19th innings at MCG. They were both 26 years old at their respective times of setting this milestone.

    11. Dennis the Menace across the Atlantic.

    The famous comic strip "Denace the Menace" existed in both the US and the UK. However they were completely different entities created by two different cartoonists. Hank Ketcham's Dennis the menace (the boy with the golden hair and a dog named Ruff) in the USA released the same time as David Law's entirely different comic under the same name in the UK. Both comics were about a little boy who liked wreaking havoc, although Law's version was dirtier and grittier. We are more familiar with the US comic as it appears on the newspaper daily and was made into a movie in 1993.

    12. A bullet is not lost until it serves its purpose (well at least for this guy).

    Henry Ziegland, a resident of Texas, dumped his girlfriend, which made her commit suicide. Her brother shot Ziegland and hurriedly took his own life. Ziegland had survived the shot as the bullet touched his face and got lodged in a nearby tree. Years later, when he was trying to cut the tree down, he used dynamite. The explosion caused the bullet to fly through and hit his head. R.I.P Mr. Ziegland.

    14. Divine Wind or Divine Intervention?

    The Mongolians tried to conquer Japan in the 13th century but were prevented from doing so after a typhoon broke out upon their arrival at the Japanese port of Hakata. They retreated and returned the following year in summer where they were once again greeted by a typhoon at Hakata. Being superstitious, the Mongols decided never to invade the country again. The weird coincidence? Typhoons don't occur in summer.
