Sometimes something so incredibly coincidental will happen that you simply can’t describe it in any way other than fate. When the universe aligns the wildest things happen, from wearing the same clothes as your Uber driver to couples meeting many years before, completely unbeknownst to one another!
We have found the most insane coincidences around the world and gathered them below for you, some of them will really make you think if there is such thing as a coincidence…or is it fate?
1.) Growing the same finger
Okay, so this one completely blows our minds Dad, on the right of the pic, had the tip of his index finger chopped off when he was 10 years old. Now, his son has the exact same length index finger… but HOW?!
It’s not biological predisposition, so lord only knows how this came to be. It’s something for them to bond over I guess.
2.) Colleagues who met 28 years ago
Here’s a genuinely heartwarming one for the romantics out there. Recently, a nurse discovered that her Doctor colleague was actually one of the premature babies who she had cared for 28 years ago!
If that doesn’t bring a smile to your face then we really don’t know what will. Also, I can’t help thinking that she has aged incredibly well!
3.) Is that the same dog?!
One day when out shopping this dog owner came across her little pup’s doppelganger! Both of these cuties are missing an eye but they definitely don’t let that get them down. Oh by the way, these are King Charles Spaniels, if you didn’t know.
I only know that myself because I spent so long googling them to find out. Too cute!
4.) Hey, that’s you!
Hopefully, that isn’t a bad omen or anything, and this is just what they think the ‘average guy’ looks like. I wouldn’t worry too much, young man!
5.) Husband and wife were in the same photo, 7 years before they met…
An old-school ‘husband and wife’ photo, but with a twist. As it turned out, the guy on the left would meet his wife 7 years after this photo was taken, but in this photo she is stood smiling with her family on the right, how does this even happen?!
I hope he looked much less lonely once they met. All’s well that ends well.
6.) Ken found the doll version of himself
It seems to be working, because this woman’s husband came across a Ken doll version of himself. But wait, there’s more – his name is actually Ken.
7.) Accurate fortune cookie
Incase you’re having a hard time figuring out what’s going on in the top pic, that’s someone who’s had a pretty hard time with their chin. Later on, her mom decided to treat them both to a succulent Chinese meal, and she received this message in a fortune cookie.
When the universe conspires like this, you just have to laugh.
8.) When your Uber driver is cooler than you
I hope they reconvened a few months down the line, when the guy on the left had a chance to grow a mustache. If you’re gonna do something, do it properly!
9.) The Matrix is real…
It’s almost like they’re trying to tell me something. Why do I feel like Laurence Fishburne is going to appear at any moment?
A quite incredible find on what seemed like a regular Fall day. As you can probably tell, this is bird poop. What’s remarkable about this particular splodge is that it looks exactly like the bird who made it.
Yup, that’s right – this pigeon pooped a stunningly accurate self-portrait of itself onto a leaf. Who knew they were such talented artists?!
11.) Same fashion sense
Don’t you just hate it when you rock up to the party and your outfit is an exact match with someone else’s. I think we’ve all been there, but this is a special case – these guys friends halfway around the country to meet up again, only to find they had both chosen the same outfit!
They even look the same…
12.) They thought they met in their 20s…
This couple thought that they met for the first time in their twenties. However, their mothers were best friends in high school, and when looking through old photo albums, the couple realized that, actually, the first time they met was when they were both babies! I guess it was meant to be.
This adorable photo was on display at their wedding, aww.
13.) The very same cliff
This guy discovered the very same cliff that the picture on his Clif bar was taken. I don’t know whether he stumbled across this, or if he actually did research, found out where it was, and went out trekking in the mountains just to take this photo.
If it was the latter, that’s a pretty amazing level of commitment to a snack bar.
14.) Two fortune cookies in a row
This guy opened two fortune cookies in a row after his meal. One of them said “love is on its way”, and sure enough, “love” followed immediately. If this guy doesn’t find actual love within a month, I would track down the manufacturer of these fortune cookies and have stern words with them.
They can’t go around getting people’s hopes up like that!
15.) That’s a lot of mustard
Sometimes, a sight can just stop you in your tracks. These three cars are all the same ugly color, parked in front of the same colored building. How did this happen?! Do they all work for a mustard company?
Is this their headquarters? Are they having a convention on ‘least attractive cars on the market’? This has confused me, big time.
16.) Why did the chicken cross the road?
This guy happened to come across the moment that has been talked about since jokes were invented (but we never actually see), and captured it on camera perfectly. Unfortunately, the chicken was in a rush, so the guy never managed to chase him down and ask him the million-dollar question.
It looks like it the chicken’s motivations will remain a mystery.
17.) Blending in
Okay, I get that this iPhone cover is supposed to blend in with a wooden table top, but I really want to know how this happened. I mean, it’s an EXACT fit! Is this some kind of freakin’ chameleon phone case?
That reminds me, I need to get a new case before I break mine again. The curse of being clumsy!
18.) Same ears!
These two German Shepherd cuties can both prick up their left ears, but not their right. What makes it more interesting is that these two are not even related! The owners recently adopted the puppy and it had the same problem as their old German Shepard.
It looks like the older Shep is taking to the parenthood role pretty well, bless.
19.) A glitch in the Universe?
It looks like these two soccer moms might have just caused a glitch in the matrix. The exact same car model parked next to each other – nothing too unusual there, you might think. But did you check the licence plates? They’re literally one digit apart! And in the huge state of California, no less.
Must be a small town.
20.) Aliens exist
Okay, this is pretty ominous. I hope this guy keeps his windows and doors locked at night, because it could be a sign of things to come. He might THINK he wants to believe right now, but he would probably feel differently if the greys came through his window in the middle of the night.
Even if they do come in peace!
21. Mark Twain predicted his own death
Taking a departure from the silliness for a moment, here’s a coincidence that’s a little more profound. Mark Twain is probably America’s most well-known writer of all time, and his books are still enjoyed by millions to this day. But what you probably didn’t know is that he accurately predicted the exact date of his own death. The writer was born in 1835, when Halley’s Comet was passing the earth. It only passes once every 76 years or so, and Twain predicted that he would die on its next passing.
“I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835,” he said in 1909. “It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it.” The writer died on the very day of its appearance in 1910. The more you think about this, the crazier it gets.
22. Make me say “oh my lord”
Sometimes, the universe aligns just for you, and you are in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. Those of you who remember the early 90s will appreciate this one.
In other news, I’m definitely going to have this song in my head all day now, and I think you will too, so I guess I can only apologize in advance.
23. If you say so
This was supposed to be a sign for a legal, legitimate drug store over in London, but as fate would have it, it’s failing lights have turned it into the polar opposite of the ‘just say no’ ads.
But then again, I guess it’s good advertising for the store, who sell… drugs. What is the opposite of subliminal messaing? Super-liminal? Yeah, I’d say this message is super-liminal.
24. Cut and paste
Another photographer in the right place at the right time. There’s a reason they call them your ‘golden years’. These silver foxes are living their best life, relaxing with the morning paper and a cup of coffee.
It’s not their fault that the universe has decided to copy and paste them like that. Do your thing, gents! Ignore the weirdo with the camera.
25. Weather the storm
This is a mighty unfortunate placement from the graphic department. Well, at least as far as this weather lady is concerned… for the rest of us, it’s pretty funny.
There are plenty of these kind of photos doing the rounds on the internet, including some much ruder ones. I just love how professional the weather forecasters are – they just don’t let anything phase them!
26. Here’s lookin’ at you
College is a wild, exciting time, and you never know what’s around the corner when it comes to your social life. One of the things that might happen is that you get paired up with your doppelganger.
What are the odds?! Something tells me that these two became good friends. They probably can’t get through a day without complimenting each other on their good looks.
27. Burning the candle at both ends
This subway passenger is obviously a little sleepy. It obviously has something to do with how hard she’s working – I mean, look at the photo in to her left! Not only that, it looks like she is now on her way to the gym, judging by the bag.
Slow down, young lady, there’s only 24 hours in a day.
28. Introducing ‘Miss Unsinkable’
The nurse in the right picture above is named Violet Jessup, and she had one hell of a life story to tell. Depending on your point of view, she was either the luckiest or unluckiest ship passenger of all time. Violet, who worked as both a stewardess and a nurse, was on the HMS Olympic when it struck the HMS Hawke, and was also on board the HMHS Britannic when it sank after hitting a sea mine.
To top it all off, she was also traveling on the RMS Titanic when it sank after hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic. What are the odds of her being on all of those ill-fated vessels, and surviving?! It’s no wonder that she later become known by the British press as Miss Unsinkable.
29. Get well soon
Here’s a very cute coincidence for you. This cat and its owner both broke their feet, so obviously they had to get themselves matching punk casts. This is the cutest thing I’ve seen all day!
Closely followed by the smaller kitty in this pic. I hope both kitty and owner get better very soon! I’m sure it will be a great bonding experience for them though.
30. Burger time
When going out for a burger one evening, this young man just happened to find himself in front of an old-school photo that looked exactly like him, headwear and all. I wonder if it’s one of his ancestors!
One thing’s for sure, they both love the taste of a good burger. Take a look at those million dollar smiles on their faces.
31. If you’re happy and you know it…
Honestly, this little boy looks so much like the boy in the sign that I genuinely can’t tell whether it’s him or not. One thing’s for sure, though – he seems to have taken the sign’s advice!
I wish I could must up that level of smile as I make my way around the grocery store. As you guys can probably imagine, it’s a struggle for me.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this gallery folks! Let us know which was your favorite in the comments.
