Do you like reading in the bathroom? So do we! Wow, what a coincidence! Here are some other coincidences we wrote about in Uncle John’s Endlessly Engrossing Bathroom Reader:

AMAZING COINCIDENCES

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

On June 6, 2009, two men in China picked the same winning seven-digit lottery number. Though they were hundreds of miles away from each other, they bought their tickets at the exact same time, down to the second.

A hot-air balloon crashed into a power line in Ruthwell, Scotland, interrupting the movie being shown on local television: Around the World in 80 Days…about a voyage in a hot-air balloon.

American journalist Irv Kupcinet was in a London hotel room in 1953 when he found a few items that belonged to a friend of his, basketball star Harry Hannin. Two days later, Kupcinet received a letter from Hannin— he’d found a tie with Kupcinet’s name on it in a Paris hotel room.

A blurry photo of a man stealing a wallet in a store ran on the bottom of the front page of the December 14, 2007, edition of Idaho’s Lewiston Tribune. Above it was an unrelated photo of a man painting a business. Readers noticed both men were wearing the same clothes…and could be the same man. He was, leading to his arrest.

In 1972 a taxi driver from Bermuda accidentally struck and killed a man who was riding a moped. One year later, the taxi driver accidentally struck and killed the man’s brother—who was riding the exact same moped on the exact same stretch of road.

In 1911 three men— named Green, Berry, and Hill—were convicted of a murder. They were hanged at London’s Greenberry Hill.

On June 24, 2005, veteran actor Paul Winchell died at age 82. He voiced the character of Tigger in Disney’s Winnie the Pooh films. The next day, John Fiedler died at age 80. He was the voice of Piglet.

My germaphobe brother refuses to even touch a Reader’s Digest, as he says they will always remind him of toilets. I myself have no such qualms.
