  i've seen some of those things before but about half i'd not heard. thanks for posting them. this kinda stuff is always useful on gameshows. people are starting to think that this will continue to happen every hundred years, and that each time the circumstances are somewhat similar, with the 15 letters and the reversed things, like the theater/warehouse.

I guess technically this would have made JFK a necrophiliac.
I think she died 3 months before JFK was shot.
