Weird experiences are what make life so interesting.
If unique things didn’t happen to us, what stories would we share with our friends, children, or grandchildren? Half the fun of living life to the fullest is to enjoy even the embarrassing moments. However, sometimes you go through an experience that seems too weird to be true. And no matter what you tell others, it would be hard to believe you.
Whether it be finding a person who looks just like you or falling out of a bed and breaking several bones, life can throw a lot of curves at you. That is why today we are taking a lot some of the most interesting happenstances and coincidences ever.
And it all started when this person asked Twitter.
Tell me a story about yourself the sounds like a lie but is absolutely true.

So let’s start with what the other Twitter users had to share about their life.
#1 So you basically found your twin then?
In college a friend found an ID of a dude over 21 who looked just like me. I used it like a charm for months. Then I went to a club and a bouncer starting asking me what’s my address and birthday and shit. I finally said “dude it’s me” and he replied “no dude, it’s ME”. It was. https://t.co/gUW03MxUc3

#2 I really hope you told that guy that the story is actually about you.
In college I fell out of my bunk bed and broke both of my legs and one arm. Years later on a date, I made a joke about being clumsy and the dude told me I couldn’t compare to this woman his EMT brother helped once … who fell out of her bunk and broke all the bones. It was me. https://t.co/TQSEwXK4rw

#3 Your baby is now famous on the Internet.
A few months after my son was born, my now-ex-wife wanted to have some professional photos taken, but we were kinda broke. We appealed to reddit and a very kind couple took pity on us and gifted us a very nice session. One of the photos ended up being the Skeptical Baby meme. https://t.co/oL2B2FkuTY

#4 Well, It was nice to meet you Ni.
My middle name is literally a fucking typo. My mom had a c section and forgot to write the rest of Nicole due to the drugs, she fell asleep and they took the paperwork, wouldn’t give it back and now my middle name is Ni https://t.co/SYbP92eN9r

#5 That is actually very hard to believe, to be honest.
I moved into the same San Francisco house high on Castro hill where my parents dated and fell in love… completely by coincidence.

#6 Did you try to find that hip art student or no?
Moved into what we believed was a three bedroom apartment. Discovered a fourth, hidden bedroom—still furnished and filled with the clothes, records, and diaries of a hip art student who had lived there 15 years ago. https://t.co/DbchiUdEey

#7 Are you sure you don’t have the memories of an old man then?
My grandfather died the same minute I was born on a different ward in the same hospital. The time on my birth cert matches his death cert.

#8 If only you had done that then.
When Taylor Swift was like 12, her father asked me to build her a website (our fathers were friends and I had learned web design). I blew him off because I was busy and while talented for her age, this Taylor girl wasn't going anywhere… https://t.co/YkdIuNhcnX

#9 Sometimes trying to help someone takes a wrong turn.
Once accidentally kidnapped a drunk man who was trying to get into his own home. Saw him slumped by the road, coaxed him into the cab to ‘take him home safely’ and ignored his slurry protests. Some 30 mins of confusing directions later and we… end up at exactly the same place. https://t.co/cwj43Fig8g

#10 This must happen to us all the time but we never notice.
My girlfriend years ago wrote a quick thank you in a $10 bill for tip and months later that same bill ended up in my hands as change. I still have that bill because of the coincidence.

#11 Coincidence or the world teaching you something?
I was riding bikes with my daughter on Fri The 13th, & a black cat scurried across the bike path in front of us. My daughter said something about bad luck, and I began to tell her that it was only superstition when a bee flew into my mouth and stung me on the back of my throat.

#12 So did it work?
I tried saving myself from the embarrasment of having being caught naked at a house viewing by a realtor and a potential buyer, by pretending to be dead
— Mireille Sillander (@mimesatwork) January 5, 2020
I really wanna know the whole story. Did the police get called? Why were you naked in the first place? Were you squatting in the house?
Tbh, they probably didn’t buy me being dead, but were suitably weirded out by me lying on the bed and trying not to breathe, that they left.
#13 I don’t even want to think too deeply with this one.
I saw my neighbor lady who had recently been hospitalized walking in her backyard and told her I was glad she was home and feeling better. She smiled at me. When I went inside and told my mom that the lady was home, Mom told me that she’d died at the hospital that morning.

#14 Honestly, anyone would get tired of that.
I once said “Hi Matt” to Matt LeBlanc in London and he responded by hugging me and saying “Thank you for not calling me Joey” https://t.co/8xIuWeMHXu

#15 I bet the thief was sh*tting in his pants at that moment.
I met Marlon Brando through an AOL chat room in the early 90s, we became friends, & a few years later, at 3am one nite, in his "Godfather" voice, he called the thief who stole my 1960 pink Rambler to tell him he'd better keep paying me the monthly court-ordered restitution money. https://t.co/O4CmR6wxRS

#16 And another story just for the kicks of it.
I was in a car in Washington, D.C. in 2006 and Barack Obama pulled up next to us at a stoplight. Obama wasn’t President yet, but my friend and I knew who he was because we had read his book.
We made small talk with him for a minute at the light and he was super friendly and asked us all kinds of questions and commented on my friend’s Kansas City Royals hat.
Epic story! And totally true.
