The Most Amazing Coincidences In Human History


The world is full of weird occurrences. Here are a few of the most mind-boggling, jaw-dropping coincidences ever recorded in human history. You won't be disappointed.

The Cursed Taxi

In July 1975, Erskine Lawrence Ebbin was knocked off his moped and killed by a taxi in Hamilton, Bermuda. It was the same taxi with the same driver, carrying the same passenger, that had killed his brother Neville in July the previous year. Both brothers were 17 when they died, and had been riding the same moped in the same street.

The Hollow Coin

During the Cold War, Russian spies used hollow coins to pass messages to each other in America. One spy accidentally used his hollow coin as actual currency, and it ended up in the general population.

The coin was found when it was given to a paperboy, who discovered the message in the hollowed out container when he dropped it and it split open. There was a message written in Russian code, so the boy handed it over to the authorities. The government spent years trying to decode the message, with no luck.

Eventually, a Russian spy named Reino Hayhanen defected to America, and in the process of handing over Russian secrets, the spy was asked about the coded message in the hollow coin. The man translated the message, and it turned out to be intended towards him all along.


Anne Hathaway's husband, Adam Shulman, has an uncanny resemblance to William Shakespeare. William Shakespeare's wife was also called Anne Hathaway.

"The Girl From Petrovka"

British actor Anthony Hopkins had landed a leading role in a film based on the book "The Girl From Petrovka" by George Feifer. A few days after signing the contract, Hopkins travelled to London to buy a copy of the book.

He tried several bookshops, but couldn't find a copy. Waiting at Leicester Square underground for his train home, he noticed a book apparently discarded on a bench. Incredibly, it was "The Girl From Petrovka."

Two years later, in the middle of filming in Vienna, Hopkins was visited by George Feifer, the author. Feifer mentioned that he did not have a copy of his own book. He had lent the last one containing his own annotations to a friend who had lost it somewhere in London.

Stunned, Hopkins handed Feifer the book he had found. "Is this the one? With the notes scribbled in the margins?" It was the same book, indeed.

Bill Morgan

An Australian guy named Bill Morgan was declared dead for 14 minutes and was revived. To celebrate his survival, he bought a scratch card and won a $27,000 car. The news reporter asked him to reenact the scratch card moment to capture it on camera, so he bought another card and won a $250,000 jackpot in it.


On Christmas Eve 1994, two cars collided near Flitcham, England. The drivers were twin sisters who were delivering presents to each other. Their names were Lorraine and Lavinia Christmas.


The sun and moon appear to be of same size because of an astonishing coincidence. The moon is 400 times smaller but 400 times closer. This makes eclipses possible. Also, complete eclipses wont be possible forever as the moon is slowly drifting away from Earth.


Someone edited professional wrestler Chris Benoit's Wikipedia page to include the death of his wife 14 hours before police discovered her body. It turned out an Internet troll had edited the page just for fun.
