Even though there are over 7.8 billion people on Earth and counting, most of us think we are the only ones. Even if someone out there looks like us, our pasts and personalities must be different, right?

A man named Jim thought that was the case. Paul Harvey, a radio host, has a show called “The Rest of the Story” where he tells the story of this man. And you won’t believe what comes next.

At first glance, there was nothing strange about Jim. In the 1940s, he had a pretty normal life. He did alright in school. He had trouble spelling, but was very good at math.

As Jim got older, he split up with a woman named Linda and got married to a woman named Betty. When he had time off, he would fix things around the house, and every year for vacation, he would go to the Gulf of Florida.

Paul Harvey said that if you knew Jim, you would know the man right away. “Anyone in his family, even his dog Toy, would know Jim anywhere,” he told his audience.

People around him thought that for 39 years, until Jim met another man also named Jim. Someone who used to be married to Linda and then married Betty.

Someone who looked just like our main character and had the same health problems. Listen to the shocking end of this shocking true story, which has kept us interested for over fifty years.
