Whilst googling my family tree.

I found the son of my aunt who was adopted when he was a baby.

I got to speak to him on the telephone.

The internet can be a wonderful thing.

I added a freind from where i used to live on facebook thought it was strange that he had a mutual freind. Found out that this mutual freind was at my college and we used to hang around with each other when i was about 5 and came from the same area....

I've got a fairly uncommon surname. Reliable sources tell me that there are only 6 people in the UK with my name.

2 of them ( me & 1 other!) work for the same company but at opposite ends of the country.

Years ago I went to a builders yard with my friend who was ordering some stuff as was getting a garage built - guy was on phone and we stood there waiting for him to finish. He started writing and read back what he had written - and it was my brothers name and my address as I still lived at home!!!!!!!!!!!! My brother is/was a brickie (firefighter now) and he was onto an agency to get someone - we were all totally freaked out by that. I remember the guy being really handsome and I said to him "now u know my phone number please dont give me weird calls unless its after 9pm on a Friday" :)

1. Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846 and John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946, one hundred years apart.

2. Still on the hundred years difference theme, Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860 and Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

3. Now their deaths. A month before Lincoln was shot he was in Monroe, Maryland and a month before Kennedy was shot he was with Marilyn Monroe.

4. Both Lincoln and Kennedy were shot on a Friday, behind the head and in the presence of their wives. And so it goes on.

5. They were both assassinated by Southerners and succeeded by Southerners.

6. As for the assassins we go back to the hundred years difference. John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839 and Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

7. If you are into numbers both Booth and Oswald were known by three names and their names are made up of 15 letters.

8. Lincoln's assassin shot the president in a theatre and then hid in a warehouse. Oswald shot Kennedy from a warehouse and hid in a theatre.

9. Both Booth and Oswald were themselves assassinated before their trials.

10. Moving on to their successors, both were called Johnson and were born 100 years apart. Andrew Johnson was born in 1808 and Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

11. There are also other similarities such as Lincoln having a secretary called Kennedy and Kennedy had a secretary named Johnson (though some dispute this fact) and both of the presidents' wives lost a son while living in the White House.

When I was younger I went down to Cornwall to work the summer season in a a hotel. while I was there I started dating a local who told me he had been engaged to a girl from Manchester. His ex turned out to be the daughter of a friend of my fathers and she had lived on the next street to me.

Used to live in Africa. After I moved back to the UK was working selling stuff door to door in Harrogate and saw a picture of Botswana on the wall of a house I was in. Said I used to live there to house owner and he said so does his daughter. Turns out she was my homeroom teacher for three years.

This crap has been around for ages, I admit that some of them are true but alot are not. For example Booth was born in 1838 not 1839 and Marilyn Monroe had been dead for about a year before Kennedy died so unless he was into dead bodies that cant be true

Strangest thing I've ever seen is celtic fans can't do basic maths & if they could do maths like rangers fans then they would know that rangers games in hand put them at the top of the league & so that makes them the best team & celtic the diddy team :-/

I also may get a quote returned for this message as it's also strange that all celtic fans are paranoid.

Last weekend we were at my parents for dinner and my son kept farting at the dinner table. After telling him off several times he said to me I can't hold it back or i'll do one so big it'll cause an earthquake. I told him I was willing to take that risk.....sorry Japan! Obviously now he's convinced he can cause earthquakes :3
