I have come across presentations of weird associations and coincidences. Here is one of them. Of course I personally don't believe that such coincidences are preordained but that they are possible is a probability, but it does tickle one's curiosity. NB the conversion protocol only works in Windows (Font: Wingdings) and not in Linux.

Less of a coincidence than you might think:

See Attached Pic    Associations and Connections - man-made interpretations/manipilations?    See my subject sub-heading.

The coincidences are not those of the wingdings conversions but what I questioned are those manipulations of the figures. Are those also just make believe
coincidences.

Here is another coincidence riddle. How much is true? Most people lap this sort of  (dis)information up us true?
