In 1938, over 6,000 patients were checked into mental hospitals all across America within one week of each other. Reports of similar instances supposedly came from Europe and Asia as well. The circumstances of each patient were, eerily, identical.

Every patient completely shut down, shivering in the corner until their family, unable to calm or care for the individuals, committed them.

The only thing the patients would say was: “There is not, and never has been, such a thing in this world as a meaningless coincidence.”

    This is the second best story on this site. This also is the only story that terrifys me, so that’s a good thing, I guess…

      This is actually true. It was when the medical professionals weren’t that “professional”. They even poked ther eyes out so that hey coulden’t anyone with theur “condition”.

    This is too vague. What event caused them to become like that? What coincidences in particular are they on about?

    I’m sorry, but that just ruins it for me.

    I think the vaguery is what’s supposed to make it spooky.

    6,000+ people around the world. Catatonic. Muttering that phrase.

    Makes you wonder what’s going on.

      6000 people around the world being admitted to a mental hospital in one week is a normal thing.

    Maybe it’s just the fact that several people in asylums are mentioned.

    “This reminds me of the Holders for some reason.”

    On the King Of Wolves, the Holders is presented after some creepypasta. The first line of the opening introduction is:

    “There is no such thing as a coincidence. There never has been and never will be.”

    Could be an unconscious association between the two if you were introduced to the Holders there (as I was, and I thought of the Holders when I read this).
