I've seen this before years ago. Pretty strange.
The man who claims to rule and teach
Is only master for the rich
And anyway succumbs
To the laws of nature in the endSlow decay and rest
As we're running fast,
And the mighty ones are nothing
But the last ones.If you give the world a chance
It will beat you down to your knees.
If you try to fight it back
It will beat you again and again.Everything is a weapon if you hold it right.Just a few facts that I thought you should know...
Life increases your chances of dying,
so why are you trying at all?
On a walk in the summer sun you're more likely to be in a homocide,
not to mention the cancer you'll get and the light waves frying your eyes.
As you're breathing this air,
you're increasing your chances of getting diseased,
so retreat in your house with your spouse,
the one person most likely to kill you.
Imagine a leaf as it falls to the ground
whining about an obstruction on the way down,
curling itself to shield from the wind so hopelessly.Life is a lesson
You learn it when it's over
In 1846, Lincoln was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served one two-year term. -Wiki-
In 1946, U.S. Representative James Michael Curley vacated his seat in the strong Democratic 11th Congressional district in Massachusetts—at Joe's urging—to become mayor of Boston. Kennedy ran for the seat, beating his Republican opponent by a large margin. He served as a congressman for six years. -Wiki-
Fuck, look the rest up yourself. It seems legit.
Did a google search, and I'm not impressed any more:
Two people achieving their first political success 100 years apart also got elected president 100 years apart. Not HUGELY surprising. Just a coincidence.
Both particularly opposing civil rights isn't exactly true either. They weren't, even. But the situations at those times kind of 'forced' their hands into those directions.
Both wives losing their children is very misleading. Kennedy suffered from a miscarriage. While Lincoln's children died of tuberculosis and the other from typhoid. Lincoln's children didn't survive past their teens, 2 of kennedy's children lived into their adulthood.
Both killed on a Friday: There's already a 1 in 7 chance that they would be killed on a Friday. Add to that that most public events (the most obvious time to assassinate a president) happen in the weekend.
Both shot in the head: Both were shot from behind and while seated. The head was the most obvious target, and lethal shots are pretty much just chest and head shots at such an occasion.
Both secretaries: Lincoln never had a secretary names Kennedy, or such records can't be found at the least.
Both being southerners: Oswald was a southerner, yes. But Booth considered himself a northerner, and wasn't really a southerner anyway if you look at where he lived and his motivations and such.
Both successors were names Johnson: Considering how common that name was in those times...really, not a huge surprise.
Booth and Oswald born 100 years apart: Wrong, Booth was born in 1838, not 1839.
Both assasinators having three known names: Most of those came only after the assassinations. Both were known by these names: John Wilkes and just Lee.
One shooting in a warehouse and caught in a theatre, the other the other way around: Not exactly true. One shot in a play-theatre, and was caught and killed in a tobacco shed days later, the other shot from a textbook warehouse and was caught alive in a movie theatre an hour later.
Monroe, Maryland and Marilyn Monroe: Marilyn died a year before Kennedy's assasination, so that isn't even possible.
In other words, when you look at the actual facts, it just looks like a bunch of odd coincidences and some made-up additions or slight alterations of them.
Pretty sure Lincoln was assassinated in Ford's Theater. In fact, I've been there before.
I don't know what to put here right now.
Eldritch monsters, obviously eldritch monsters.

Oh, did you guys ever hear that around 2 years before Lincoln's assassination, his son was saved from certain death by John Wilkes Booth's brother.
