"And Grant Always Had Body Guards"

"But Because He Couldnt Stand Lincolns Wifes Consistent Mouth?"

"He Declined"

"Otherwise....The Assassination Would Not Have Happened".............detective
So many 'What If's' regarding both incidents, Mr. detective

WHAT IF...the key to the cabinet holding the Titanic's binoculars hadn't been mislaid?
dunno

History does not reveal its alternatives.

April 14th is New year here.

Sinhalese and Tamils celebrate New year when the Sun moves from the house of Pisces to the house of Aries. It is something to do with the Astrological calendar.

During this transition, there is a time period, that people don't do anything because it is considered as an inauspicious period. Yesterday, it was from 7.45 a.m to 8.33pm.
So may be, just may be, the iceberg struck at an inauspicious time.

May be Lincoln was shot at an auspicious time, and may be he was going through a bad time period Astrologically.

I don't believe in these stuff. But sometimes I wonder what if they are true.

So, Happy New year to you. If it is still 14 th be aware, sun is making a move. But the sun doesn't move right? grin

I don't understand these things.doh

A fascinating twist on what was already a remarkable coincidence, Usha.

"I don't believe in these stuff. But sometimes I wonder what if they are true."

It does make one wonder.
