    He signed his will on 7/7/02

    He died 7 yrs after signing his will

    His memorial was on 7/7/09

    He was the 7th sibling in the family

    His 2 biggest hits (Blk & Wht and Billie Jean) were #1 for 7 wks

    His songs Thriller, Bad, & Dangerous produced 7 top 40 hits.




    As you can tell, I'm talking about MJ...just heard this on TV. (I didn't want to title the thread w/ his name again because I didn't want people to say, oh no another MJ thread & not read it ;))

    TMZ.com had this listed. What a coincidence.

    There were some 9/11 coincidences as well... this thread reminded me of those.

    Just read this to my teenage son. He said "7 was just not a good number for him in the end."

    We drove to LA Sunday to drop off my oldest at UCLA. We passed the Staples center on the freeway. We tried to go down passed it in town but it was just too crazy.

    My mom just sent me this one. Similar to the MJ coincidences, but a little stranger...

    "Have a history teacher explain this----- if they can.

    Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
    John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

    Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
    John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

    Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
    Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.

    Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
    Both Presidents were shot in the head.

    Now it gets really weird.

    Lincoln 's secretary was named Kennedy.
    Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln.

    Both were assassinated by Southerners.
    Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

    Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
    Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.




    John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.

    Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.


    Both assassins were known by their three names.
    Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

    Now hang on to your seat.

    Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford'.
    Kennedy was shot in a car called ' Lincoln ' made by 'Ford'.

    Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
    Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

    Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials."

    Woah, that's really something! BTW, is there a specific TERM for this kind of thing or do they just call them ironies?
