Think about it like this: one day your dad and mom met, got married and all of a sudden, all of the people who are related to them, are now family! It’s not something they could have predicted before.
In fact, in this case, one great-grandfather planned the other one’s home, only at that time, the person meant nothing to him. Years later, the two are part of the same family tree. Bizzare.
The Greatness of Great-grandfathers
As far as we know, most grandfathers don't go to jail. But maybe that's just our ignorance speaking. Having one great-grandfather go to jail is one thing; for the other one from the other side to also go to jail is another.
But learning that the two actually were in the same jail, at the same time? Could they have met and been friends without knowing that many years later they will share a great-grandson?
According to this story, it seems that Twitter user @AnxiousBookNerd might be able to pursue a career in spellcasting if he wanted to. Sure, more than one best man has passed out at a wedding thanks to a combination of factors like heat, heavy clothing, uncomfortable shoes, and more.
Still, these instances are relatively rare, which leads us to believe there was something more happening here. This man must be a powerful wizard!
Small Town People
When you move out of a very small town, do you want to accidentally meet someone from that exact same place, or are you more likely to want nothing to do with anyone who has ever lived there?
Many times, it's the second one, but in this little story, it sounds like the guy was happy and excited to experience this coincidence during his first party in his new town!
If you thought the coincidence in this story was amazing, wait till you hear the rest of it. A little while later, this Reddit user was on a business trip in Toronto.
He grabbed dinner and then went to a pub. When he walked in, he saw that same friend he saw in Tokyo. They both live in Winnipeg, but it seems like lady luck likes to help them get together in foreign countries too.
