Here's one more for you guys,

What happens when a president gets elected in a year with a "0" at the end? Also notice it goes in increments of 20 years. And LOOK! This year is where it lands!

1840: William Henry Harrison (Died in Office)
1860: Abraham Lincoln (Assassinated)
1880: James A. Garfield (Assassinated)
1900: William McKinley (Assassinated)
1920: Warren G. Harding (Died in Office)
1940: Franklin D. Roosevelt (Died in Office)
1960: John F. Kennedy (Assassinated)
1980: Ronald Reagan (Survived Assassination Attempt)
2000: ?????????????????????????????????????????

And to think we had 2 guys duking it out in the courts to be the one elected in 2000.

I posted that a few months back. It is believed to be a curse on the US put on by an Indian Medicine Man. However, many believe the curse was broken when Regan survived.

-Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
*Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln.
-Lincoln's secretary warned Lincoln not to go to the theater because she had a bad dream the previous night.
*Kennedy's secretary warned Kennedy not to go to Dallas because she had a bad dream the previous night.
Wrong. Lincoln never even had a secretary named Kennedy.


-John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
*Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Wrong. Booth was born in 1838.

Booth ran from the theater and was cought in a warehouse.
*Oswald ran from a warehouse and was cought in a theater.
Booth was killed in a barn, not a warehouse.
And here's the kicker:
-A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
*A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.
Well I guess Kennedy was a pretty sick bastard then. Marilyn Monroe died on August 4 1962, almost a year and a half before Kennedy was shot.

Lol, nicely done. I rememberd learning Booth was shot in a barn, but I wasn't certain. Thanks for clearing this shit up.
