Does history repeat itself, we just look for keywords?
Some time ago I read an article from a guy that was some kind of number scientist. He basically said that history repeats itself on the same days and we just need to read them right. He mentioned something about history repeating itself every so many years.

From what I remember, the so many years, I think was every 69 years, would repeat for that year. But the same day thru the years would repeat or have "keywords" to current events. So I am doing a search for today and see if any kind of "keywords" come up that apply to today so far.

Re: Does history repeat itself, we just look for keywords?
Ok here is what I found and probably could make something out of nothing but I do find these kinda interesting. This is for today. I will cap the keywords.

1910-British MINERS for 8-hr work day
1943-The very first MISSING PERSONS broadcast airs
1957-The first electronic WATCH was introduced (Watching the time for the miners rescue?)
1962-Ground Broken for Houston Astrodome. (Ground broken for mine rescue?)
1977-Apple computers incorporated (computer news in news big time today over security flaw?)

Maybe making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Re: Does history repeat itself, we just look for keywords?
A couple other things I noticed. The broadway show "smile" ended today. Could that be a happy ending for the miner situation?

Also, on this day gold hit a record high twice thru history, will it again today.

Also, Alaska admitted to the U.S. Alaskan earthquake today?

Just all food for thought.

Re: Does history repeat itself, we just look for keywords?
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.'

Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

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.
