50+ One In A Million Coincidences That Are Hard To Believe Have Actually Happened
Posted By Me
Some people believe in fate, that everything in life happens for a reason, is predetermined and therefore out of your power. Others believe in an existence that is more of a series of random events and occurrences that, no matter how bizarre they may seem, are purely chance coincidences.
Wherever your beliefs lie on the fate-coincidence scale, these odds-defying scenarios will blow your mind. A&D has compiled a list of a few times when coincidences were just so perfect, occurrences so rare that even the most ardent skeptic may wonder if there weren’t some supernatural forces at play.
What’s the weirdest coincidence that you have ever encountered? Let us know in the comments below! (H/T)
01. What Are The Chances?
“20 years ago I went to an air show with my Grandpa and Uncle. One of the aircraft I sat in was the OH58 Kiowa. This was the day that I decided that I wanted to be a pilot. Today while looking through some old photos I found the picture below of me sitting in the Kiowa. I thought it was cool because that’s what I’ve been flying the past month. Upon arriving to the airfield today I asked operations if they have ever had a Kiowa with the tail number listed on the aircraft that I sat in when I was eight years old. (What are the chances right?) They looked it up and not only had they once had that aircraft there, but it was sitting on the ramp. I went out and took a picture with it and realized that I had actually been flying that specific Kiowa this past month. Twenty years later I am flying the exact aircraft that helped spark my dream to fly.”

These are the mugshots of William West and William West, and they are not related. They were both sent to Leavenworth Prison at the same time, in 1903, and after some confusion, the staff understood they had two different prisoners with the exact same name, who looked exactly alike. They are part of the reason fingerprints are now used as identification.
