Did You Know: Mark Twain

, , , , , , , ,

Did you know that American satirist and writer Mark Twain was born shortly after the appearance of Halley’s Comet in 1835, and died on the day of its next appearance in 1910?

What is even more strange, in his autobiography, published in 1909, he wrote:

“I came in with Halley’s comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.’
