I didn't hear about all of these, but I did hear a couple before. I had US History in eighth grade(going of to high school!) and I heard some wierd and funny stuff. My teacher even showed the creepy coincidences between President Lincoln and President . Did u know their deaths are exactly a year apart? Also they were elected a year apart. Both of their assassins(I'm not sure I spelled that right, LOL) were known by 3 names and had 15 letters in their name(not the presidents). President Lincoln was killed in Ford Theatre, President Kennedy was killed in a car made by Ford called Lincoln. Spooky isn't it?
