1. Enzo Ferrari Reincarnated?


If you're not sure who Enzo Ferrari is, his last name should at least ring a bell as he's responsible for one of the finest, luxury sports automobile companies in the entire world.

Unfortunately, the mastermind passed away in 1988 but, about a month later, pro-footballer, Mesut Özil was born and from the looks of their portraits side-by-side, these two are either closely related or Özil is a reincarnated Enzo Ferrari in the flesh.

Titanic & Futility


In 1898, fourteen years prior to the sinking of the Titanic, a novel by author, Morgan Robertson was released entitled Futility which was a story of an unsinkable ship with very similar modifications to the Titanic named the Titan was sunk by a giant iceberg in the Northern Atlantic a la the actual Titanic ship. There's also a huge conspiracy behind this, that we'll leave you guys up to research, it's one of our favorites.

3. George Handel & Jimi Hendrix Neighbors?

It isn't hard to believe that two musical geniuses would be living in the same city or town but there might be an occurrence like any the coincidence of George Handel and Jimi Hendrix being neighbors... Centuries apart from each other. Classical composer, George Handel lived at 25 Brook Street in London while Jimi Hendrix lived at 23 Brook Street in London hundreds of years later. Two musical geniuses living on the same street can't be just a coincidence.

4. Zubaida Tharwat & Jennifer Lawrence

Zubaida Tharwat was known to have the most beautiful eyes in Egyptian cinema during her time as an actress in the African nation who unfortunatelyrecently passed away in 2016. What we find eerie is that she shares a lot of facial similarities with actress none other than Jennifer Lawrence who's thriving in Hollywood today. Coincidence? We think not.

6. The Cars That Found Each Other

Back in 1895, the automobile industry had yet to make booming progress but,there were vehicles present during the time. Coincidentally, two automobiles collided in Ohio later to find out that those were the only two cars in the entire state at the time. Sadly, there were no documented automobile accidents at the time so record of this occurring on paper is non-existent.

8. The First & Last Soldiers

A lot of people lost their lives during the First World War and coincidentally the graves of the first and last British soldiers to die in the war are only six meters away from each other, and just so happen to be facing each other. TheBritish claim that this was not deliberately done on purpose whatsoever.
