I was looking for the reason why I need to turn off my TV during lighting storms when I came across an article about a man struck by lighting.
In 1899 a man was killed by a bolt of lightning as he stood in his backyard in Taranto, Italy. Thirty years later, his son was killed in the very same spot by another bolt of lightning. On October 8, 1949, Rolla Primarda, the second victim’s son (and grandson of the first victim) was also killed in the same spot by yet another bolt of lightning.
That comes from the list of amazing coincidence from listverse.com. And since I am such a sucker for this kind of information, I just had to read on and I even forgot the reason why I hit Google.And the most amazing coincidence for me is the story of a twin brother:
The twin brothers, Jim Lewis and Jim Springer, were separated at birth, adopted by different families. Unknown to each other, both families named the boys James. Both James grew up not knowing of the other, yet both sought law-enforcement training, both had abilities in mechanical drawing and carpentry, and each had married women named Linda. Both had sons, one of whom was named James Alan and the other named James Allan. The twin brothers also divorced their wives and married other women – both named Betty. And they both owned dogs which they named Toy.
Now you can say What a coincidence! LOL
