Life can sometimes produce fascinating, extraordinary coincidences. Here are a few of the most amazing ones:
1. Death of Two Brothers, One Bike, One Cab
- In 1975, Erskine Lawrence Ebbin, a 17 year old boy was killed while riding his bike was moped by a taxi in Hamilton, Bermuda
- A clipping appeared on page nine, column three of The Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph on July 21, 1975.
That's right. The two brothers were killed by the same taxi. With the same driver. Carrying the same passenger. Almost exactly one year later
2. Twin Telepathy: The Jim Twins
- Soon after their birth in 1940, American identical twins Jim Springer and Jim Lewis were adopted by different families and never knew of each other's existence until they were reunited 39 years later.
- Both named Jim by their adoptive parents, both married twice- the first time to women named Linda, and to women called Betty for the second time.
- Jim Springer named his son James Allen whilst Jim Lewis called his son James Alan. They both had dogs named Toy, both spent time as sheriff's deputies, they drank the same beer, smoked the same cigarettes and drove the same model of car - a Chevrolet. (SOURCE)

4. The Death of Richard Parker
- In the 19th century, a book called "The narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym," was written by Edgar Allan Poe, a famous horror writer. It was about four survivors of a shipwreck who were in an open boat for many days before they decided to kill and eat the cabin boy whose name was Richard Parker.
