Some people believe that coincidences are nothing more than a series of random events that have no underlying message or meaning, and there’s no supernatural intelligence running the show. Things happen because they just do.
But, others will tell you that there’s no such thing as coincidences! Whether they call it fate, destiny, or the Universe being cheeky, when the stars get all their ducks lined up in a row, it’s more than just a happy accident. It’s a MESSAGE!
No matter which camp you fall under, these photos of 75 weird and strange coincidences, one-in-million-odds, and other rare circumstances are almost too surreal to pass off as mere happenstance.
But, catching a dragonfly trying to shag a dragonfly tattoo is definitely one-in-a-million! (That’s how they mate, from tail to tail.)
“Twenty 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. Wild.”
Or, like @clamberrypie said:
“It’s like a butterfly version of the Sears catalog lingerie section.”
“So my dad, a fisherman at lake “Attersee”, Austria, just fished up his old, lost wallet in one of his fishnets, after he had dropped it into the lake 20 YEARS AGO.”
“This happens because one (two) rainbow(s) is(are) generated by the sun and the other, with the weird angle, from the reflection of the sun on a lake or body of water. If the reflection was strong enough you would see 4th.”
Understandably, staff were confused by the men who shared the same name, same hair, and practically the same face (although on closer inspection you can notice the differences.
They are part of the reason why law enforcement now uses fingerprints as identification.
“Spotted this rare phenomenon over eastern Victoria. Fallstreak holes, or hole punch clouds, form in clouds that contain supercooled water droplets — at a temperature below freezing point, but not frozen.”
The noble Jedi Knight way:
“The Force is strong with this one.”
Or, the Party Pooper (@Teste_on_Hennes_Chin) way:
“You know how the saying goes: “Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in awhile.” I suppose this is his nut.”
According to some Native American traditions, white deer are symbolic of a great shift coming to this world.
“This was taken during a thunderstorm, and that’s the sky lighting up from a lightning strike. Somehow my coworker snapped a pic before the sky fully lit up.”
“Almost 12 years ago my Dad caught a picture so rare that no one believed us when we told them. Today I finally found the picture to prove it…”
anymore, like they did back in the good old days.
And, then there’s this from @therealpixie:
“Looks like squirrel incest to me! Surely two albino squirrels must share DNA.”
She’s got a point!
