James Dean got killed in a horrible car crash while driving his Porsche. The car was nicknamed “the little bastard”. It has very interesting story that because of this it is considered one of the weird coincidences.

3. Chelyabinsk Meteor And 2012 DA14
An asteroid entered the earth’s atmosphere and exploded on February 15, 2013. It was seen over the southern Ural region of Russia. It was the largest known airburst since the 1908 Tunguska event and was viewed by hundreds of people. The light produced by the blast was brighter than the sun and the shock wave was felt over a large area. The energy of the explosion was about equal to 20-30 Hiroshima atomic bombs. Asteroid was a surprise for the authorities as well. They were unaware of the asteroid and it was only known after the air burst. 1500 people were injured and over 7000 buildings were destroyed.
This was a weird coincidences very rare and only happened once in history when a meteor was known to injure mankind. About 16 hours after the Chelyabinsk Meteor hit Russia, another asteroid was detected within 27700 km surface range of the earth. It was named 2012 DA14. It was the recorded as the second closest passage of this size of meteor to earth. This coincidence is very rare. The two asteroids could not be related as it has been determined that asteroids have completely different orbits.

1. Fate of Titanic written 14 Years Early
This is probably the most shocking and yet weird coincidences of all time, where a fable met the bitter reality. In the year 1898, an author Morgan Robertson wrote a tale entitled Futility (or the Wreck of the Titan). The story described the voyage of a British luxury liner, HMS Titan which hit an iceberg while crossing the northern Atlantic. HMS Titan sank while having a great many passengers on-board.
The survivors were far too few due to the lack of sufficient lifeboats on-board. Fourteen years later the famous luxury ship Titanic (the Un-sinkable) sank when it hit the iceberg as it was crossing the Atlantic. What’s even more dreadful is that both the real ships were about 800 feet long, both hit an iceberg in the month of April while traveling at around 25 knots, and both claimed about 2500 lives.
Coincidences are not something you can bring to have, rather things that are beyond a human thinking and control. Though this is true, what baffles many is a scenario in which you find some coincidences taking place that you wonder whether they were pre-planned. Weird coincidences! Very few but really shocking.
