Some of you may have seen or heard of the similarities of Lincoln and Kennedy. There kind of eerie. I'd post them now, but I have them at home, not here at work. If people are interested I'll (or someone else) post them tonight.

Here's the Kennedy/Lincoln stuff:
  • Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846, JFK in 1946.
  • Lincoln was elected President in 1860, JFK in 1960
  • The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain 7 letters
  • Both were concered with civil rights
  • Both wives lost children while living in the White House
  • Both presidents were shot on a Friday
  • Both were shot in the head
  • Licoln'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. Lydon Johnson, who succeeded Kennendy, 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 are know by three names - both contain 15 letters
  • Lincoln was shot in a theatre called "Ford" - Kennedy was shot in a car called "Ford"
  • Booth ran from a theatre and was caught in a warehouse. Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theatre.
  • Booth and Oswald werer assassinated before their trials.
  • A week before he was shot, Lincoln was in Monroe, Maryland. A week before he was shot, Kennendy was in Marilyn Monroe!

All that, plus the Zero Factor.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
