This is what my dad got similarily in an email...........

Retyped and simplified.......*Copy and PASTE job*

Presidential Curse Look what happens when a President gets elected in a year with a "0" at the end. Also notice it goes in increments of 20 years.

1840: William Henry Harrison (died in office)
1860: Abraham Lincoln (assassinated)
1880: James A. Garfield (assassinated)
1900: William McKinley (assassinated)
1920: Warren G. Harding (died in office)
1940: Franklin D. Roosevelt (died in office)
1960: John F. Kennedy (assassinated)
1980: Ronald Reagan (survived assassination attempt)
2000: George W. Bush

And to think that we had two guys fighting it out in the courts to be the one elected in 2000.
You might also be interested in this. Have a history teacher explain this if they can.
Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846. John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.
Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860. John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.
Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.

Now it gets really weird.
Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln.
Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners 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 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Both assassins were known by their three names. Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

Now hang on to your seat.
Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford'. Kennedy was shot in a car called 'Lincoln' made by 'Ford'. Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

And here's the kicker.......
A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.
Creepy huh? This is one history lesson people don't mind reading

It's interesting, but it is still old stuff.

I'm curious how much of that stuff is verifiable with facts and evidence (not the election years, Lincoln/Kennedy's secretaries and stuff). Sounds like someone just has a hyperactive imagination.

Actually I didn't think up on this, my dad got it in an email and showed it to me. Since it was the first time I heard of this, I decided to post it on here. Sorry if anyone of you thought up of this or read it before, because I haven't.

It's old but it's still pretty neat. I prefer the version that says, "in Marilyn" though. :D

You really do not want to talk about a current livings presidents date of death. In this time of war and terrorism, you may be hunted down by the Secret Service.. lol It is against the law to even joke about it.. ok I am shutting up now.

I heard that Lincon and Roosevelt are related.

1)their name's have 12 letters

2)Lincon was assinated in a theatre and the assasin ran to a warehouse

3)Kennedy was assasinated in a warehouse and the assasin ran to a theatre.

< FREAKY!!! >

Whoa, you musn't live anywhere near me. I never heard of that.

Anyway, I found that stuff pretty interesting too, 'cause I live in Canada and never heard of it.

You say yourself Reagan didn't die,
doesn't that spoil the record?

Why ignore the piece of evidence that ruins your point?

Maybe if they all were assasinated you would have a point and I would have to explain it to you.

And who said "Kennedy was assasinated in a warehouse and the assasin ran to a theatre".

He was shot in a car while riding down the road.

Watch me Disruptor for nore details.
