3. The sad demise of the Ebbin brothers.
Neville and Erskine Ebbin both died at the tender age of 17 in an accident with a taxi. Here’s the weird part. They both died a year apart while riding the same moped. So so much of a coincidence. But here’s where it gets weirder. Both brothers were killed by the same taxi, which was being driven by the same driver and it was carrying the same passenger. Don’t believe us? Here’s a clipping from 1975 reporting the incident.
4. Mark Twain’s prediction.
In 1909, the author of Tom Sawyer was quoted saying, “I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together’.”
Twain died of a heart attack on April 21, 1910, one day after the comet’s closest approach to Earth.
