DailyDirt: I Should've Changed That Stupid Lock, I Should've Made You Leave Your Key…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Some people are astonishingly lucky, but it depends on your point of view whether that luck is good or bad. Surviving after falling out of a plane without a parachute has happened to a surprising number of people, but not all of them have fully recovered. Some folks win extraordinary jackpots from the lottery, and then file for bankruptcy shortly afterwards. Maybe it’s easier to survive an asteroid field if you don’t know the odds.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

Whoa, being hit 7 times by lightning and surviving gotta be proof that some kind of god exists and really hates him. Possibly Thor. Maybe he’s just too Loki. Or is fighting wizards. Well, he is a ranger.

It’s gotta be much more improbable than the chances involved in the case of the person hit by a meteorite.

And They Say The Universe Is Not Intellegently Designed!

If you want PROOF that EVERYTHING is part of a PLAN, and NOTHING is RANDOM, then THIS HAS GOT TO BE IT!!! I mean, WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF ALL THESE THINGS HAPENING, quote, “RANDOMLY”? It just BEGGARS BELEIF that clever so-called SCIENTISTS continue to feed us the most INCREDIBLE ATHIEST CRAP! WAKE UP YOUR BRAINS NOW!!!

I agree with you, Zeus really does seem to have it in for that ranger guy, huh.

I can’t help thinking though – how many goes do you think it takes Zeus to get guy properly crispy? I’d have thought He’d have had it in one. Zeus really needs to up His game.

A Dutch man was booked on both Malasian Airlines Planes that were lost last year – but chnaged his booking for convenience/money saving reasons on both occasions.

Violet Jessop was on Board the Olympic when it was in a collision, the Titanic when it sank and the Brittanic when it was sunk by a U boat in WW1 – she survived all three.
