Samuel Langhorne Clemens adopted the pseudonym Mark Twain.

His two best-known novels are, ”The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and ”The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.”

Mark Twain’s 1835 birth came in the same year as an appearance of Halley’s Comet.

He died in the year of its next appearance, 1910.

Where This Gets Strange:

In 1909 Mark Twain stated that he expected to die the following year when Halley’s Comet returned.

He Stated — ” 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. ”

He died one day after the comet was seen.

  1. Its a fact: One can not pick the day they are born …they can, however, choose the day they die.

      My Response — Except that Mark missed the spaceship comet by a full day 😉 taking a simple missed flight to the next level.

  3. I really enjoy his short humor essays. The one where he hires a lightening rod installer is an absolute scream.
