# 1 Separated Twins With Similar Life

A group of twins from Ohio separated at birth grew up without knowledge of each other's existence. Their lives share an unusual resemblance. They were both named James in their adoption, they both grew up to be police officers, and they both married women named Linda. But that is not all. Each of them had a son, one named James Allan and the other named James Alan, and each had a dog named Toy. Both brothers eventually divorced, and both eventually married and married women named Betty! (source: people)


# 2 Did Edgar Allan Poe Have a Time Machine?

Did Edgar Allan Poe Have a Time Machine?

Did Edgar Allan Poe have a time machine? Some people think so. What else could he have known about the event about fifty years before it happened? In his book The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, the author describes how four sailors who survived a shipwreck were forced to eat a poor beach boy named Richard Parker. Although Poe claimed that the story was based on real events, that was not really the case. Forty-six years later, the boat sank, and the rescued crew members were forced to eat the boy's house in order to survive. What is the boy's name? Guess - Richard Parker.

# 3 Mark Twain Predicted His Death

Mark Twain Predicted His Death

Did the famous writer Mark Twain predict his death? Not so in the case of those who did not do so. The author was born in 1835, when Halley's Comet passed away. It only passes once in 76 years or so, but Twain predicted he would die with his next passing. "I came with Halley's Comet in 1835," he said in 1909. "It will be back again next year, and I look forward to coming out with it." The writer died on the very day he appeared in 1910. (Americanliteraryblog, wikipedia)


# 4 Miss Unsinkable

Miss Unsinkable

Depending on how you look at it, Violet Jessup was either a very lucky lady, or she was a very bad report. The captain and nurse were in the HMS Olympic when it crashed into HMS Hawke, was in the HMHS Britannic crash when it sank after hitting a sea mine, and was traveling with the RMS Titanic when it sank after hitting the iceberg at HMS Hawke. North Atlantic. No wonder she was later known as Miss Unsinkable! (source: historybuff)


# 5 Anthony Hopkins Case And The Unusual Book

Anthony Hopkins Case and the Unusual Book

While Anthony Hopkins was preparing for his role in The Girl from Petrovka, he wanted to get a book (written by George Feifer) to read before he started recording. But wherever he looked, he could not find a copy until one day, while sitting on a train, he found a copy in his cart. But that is not the end of the story, for when Hopkins met with the author later, Feifer told him that he too did not have a copy of the book. Why? Because he had borrowed the last from his friend, who had accidentally lost it on the train! (source: npr, dm)
