    Life is foil of coincidences. Below y ou'll hod a selection of

    urban legends based on coincidences that English Matters

    has collected for its readers,

    oseph Piglock was walking down the sweet in Detroit

    in

    the1930s when he was suddenly hit by a baby that fell

    from a window . A year later the man was walking the

    same way and the very same baby fell on his head again.

    Each time neither of them w as ityjiared.

    At the end of the

    195

    century, Henry Ziegland broke up

    syjyj,

    h his girlfriend. Out of despair, the girl committed

    suicide. Consequently, Ziegland was hunted down by

    her rstrggrd brother , who planned to kill Ziegland and

    then himself. He found him and took a shot at him. It

    was a close call, but fortunately for Ziegland the bullet

    just missed him and lodged in a tree. A few years later,

    a man decided to cut down the tree. I t turned out to be

    too diff icult to chop down, so he decided to blow it up

    instead. However, the explosion sent the bullet flying off

    at speed, hitting the passing Ziegland and killing him.

    So, in this way, Ziegland was eventually shot. It seems

    that there is

    gtgiti

    of truth in the saying: if ounce born

    IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIN Lk Twain said the following words: "I came

    in wit om et in 1835. It is com ing again nex t

    year, and I e5TW to go not with it." Mark Twain was

    born in 1831 the year of appearance of Halley's Comet

    and passed away in 191 0 when it appeared again. So, he

    managed to

    .tgyjic the coincidence of his ow n death.

    Daniel Du Tait gave a lecture in South Africa which was

    supposed to warn listeners that death can strike us down

    ustainable Sherford

    at anytime. No sooner had he sat down than he choked on

    a Peppermint and promptly departed this life.

    England. It is expected to provide

    i n s o s i n g

    for 12,000 people.

    Sherford has been designed in a w ay that will 0500ttos e its resi-

    dents louse walkw ays and cycleways l i tnigatof gett ing into the

    car. The town is to take pride its its 500-acre community park.

    Th e mo st important feature of Sherford will be enem y-efficient

    buildings using reriosyitbie sources of energy. T he town will be

    equipped w ith two w ind turbines. Anart from being eco-friendly,

    Sherford is expected to cherish comm unity values and social co-

    hesion. The place is supposed to create an oasis of balance be-

    tween work space and green space. Half of its energy needs w ill

    be

    softti

    by simile renewables - windpower, solar thermal en-

    ergy, photovoltaic energy. Rainwater will bebcyoteg for flush-

    l i s p

    will support gregotg_r recycling. The sine of hou ses w ill

    tango

    from one-bedroom flats to large family homes, since Sherford

    wants to be recognized as a socially-inclusive town. Com munity

    gardens, protection of w ildlife habitats may be an o rganic farm,

    all gathcrd in one place the town of the future: Sherford.
