    [​IMG] 1981: Prince Charles got married, Liverpool was the Europe champion and the Pope died.

    2005: Prince Charles got married, Liverpool was the Europe champion and the Pope died.

    Should someone advise the Pope in case Prince Charles marries again...

    Source 1

    But, doing a little research I found that no Pope died in 1981 but in 1978.

    And this seems to be more a coincidence.

    Ever heard this one?

    Kennedy failed to win the Vice Presidential nomination in 1956.

    Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
    John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

    Lincoln defeated Stephen Douglas who was born in 1813.
    Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon who was born in 1913.

    Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
    Both wives lost children while in the White House.

    Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
    Both Presidents were shot in the head.

    Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
    Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln.

    Both were assassinated by Southerners.
    Both were succeeded by Southerners.

    Both Presidents had Vice Presidents named Johnson.

    Lincoln's Vice President was called Andrew Johnson who served in the House of Representatives in 1847.
    Kennedy's Vice President was called Lyndon Johnson who served in the House of Representatives in1947.

    Both successors (their Vice Presidents) were named Johnson.
    Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
    Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

    John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1838. (not 1839)!
    Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

    Both assassins were known by the three names.
    Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

    Lincoln was shot at the theatre called "Ford."
    Kennedy was shot in a car named "Lincoln", made by Ford.

    Booth ran from the theater and was caught in a warehouse.
    Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theater.

    Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

    NOTE: President Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809 and died on April 15, 1865 (age 56)
    President Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917 and died on Nov 22, 1963 (age 46)

    I haven't verified the info, but my history teacher read it to us last year, and I thought it was really neat.

    For me personally it would depend on what bullets and weapon i was using. Up close and personal I'd use a 22 and head shot after entering the skull the bullet does not have energy to exit so it just bounces round the skull shredding the brain. From a distance and down explosive bullets slightly to the left of the sternum and about 3rd rib down taking out the heart and lungs. :grin:

    System went down while I was posting...
    Oh, I was searching some information about the Newcastle because there is this new movie about a guy who ends playing in that club and because no movie gets its name like it really is I was searching what is the real name of the movie. Anyway, the point is that... what strange coincidence... and asked myself that if Liverpool has to wait to Prince Charles to get married again to win another championship.
