The world is a strange place, and sometimes things happen that are so outlandish that it seems impossible for them to be true. From Disney park guests to famous historical figures, no one is immune to bizarre, unbelievable coincidences.
True Disney magic
In the early 2000s, soon-to-be-married couple Alex and Donna were looking through old photos to put in their wedding video. They happened upon one of Donna and her siblings posing with Peter Pan’s Smee on a childhood trip to Disney World in 1980. But there was something shocking in the background of the photo – or someone, to be exact. It was Alex, being pushed in a stroller by his father. Until that moment, the couple had had no idea that they’d been at Disney World at the same time as kids, long before they knew each other – let alone in the same photo! In 2010, they returned to Disney World to recreate the photo with their own children.
The seemingly meaningless sentence “Here was I like a psalm” is an anagram for “William Shakespeare”; they consist of the same letters and only the same letters. But…is it meaningless? The 46th word in Psalm 46 in the King James Bible is “shake,” and the 46th word from the end is “spear.” William Shakespeare’s age when the King James Bible was first completed, in 1611? Forty-six years old.
