Lincoln and Kennedy

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

When I was in fourth grade my teacher handed out a sheet that had some fun-facts that related presidents Kennedy and Lincoln. I lost that paper almost immediately (like most fourth graders would) and over the years since I've thought about it here and there.

This morning while testing our new web content filter I was randomly clicking around and landed on a web page that had some (if not all) of these fun-facts:

Fascinating huh? I stole all of this from The OfficeSpam Blog.

Check out the snopes article on these coincidences. They make a lot of good points, such as the fact that 100 years between two dates doesn't really make them coicidental, especially when you consider that elections only happen every 4 years.

But, yes I also had a copy of the Lincoln / Kennedy Coincidences when I was a kid (got it on a piece of parchment when we took a day trip to DC) and was similarly fascinated by them.

Ok, so the snopes article debunked a few...I still found it interesting how a few random webpage clicks landed me on that page when I've been looking (rather passively) for this for years.
