I am not religious at all. I've actually gotten into a few arguments (well, discussions lol) with commenters here about it. That being Said, I truly believe there is something bigger than everyone out there, and awesome things like this help remind me that no matter how smart or advanced as a species we get, there are still things that happen that have no, earthly for lack of a better word, explanation. So awesome.
The miracle was the medical life support technology that kept his body alive until his brain was able to heal itself. Without the life support the son would have died before this event occurred.
No JRook...the miracle was that the staff that was determined to cut his son off of life support, finally gave in to pressure to keep him on it, when they could just as easily stonewalled against the pressure, and made a case to justify their cutting off life support without any legal consequences, because situations like the son's happen everyday.
You're way too readily dismissive about miracles. So sad that you have so little faith. Must be depressing to be such a cynic.

Just gotta do it. I’m calling “bull shark” on this story.

That family was just about three inches away from being among the Doorly departed.
That glass may have cracked but it would take minutes to break through the rest of the way. Just like bullet proof glass, it may fracture and a high powered bullet may go straight through. But that's it , you could sledge away at it for awhile before you'd even get a piece of the window out, they are multi layered glass with sheets of adhesive in between to offer more durability and safety from loose shards. Most likey one layer of the glass broke and the cracks were visible but several layers were probably still intact

Don’t confuse gorillas with their face ripping cousins, the chimpanzees.

Great post, but Harry is younger than George Soros by nine years, you know.

Blaze editor: There appears to be a significant error in this story. It says there are 340,000 gun owners in a population of 3.9 million. It appears that a decimal place was inserted where it does not belong, because the population of Poland is close to 39,000,000.
The saddest thing about this disaster was the mindset of the students on board. Since someone in authority had told them to stay put, they remained inside the ferry as it slowly capsized, with only a very few going against the instructions so as to go outside and save themselves. The video of them arguing among themselves as to whether they should leave was truly frightening. It may also explain how the Kims have controlled North Korea for nearly 70 years.

As the signs in British rail stations say: “Mind the gap.”

Finally found a Ripe comment I could give a thumb up to.

Ripe: You’ve gained even more crudability, though.

If Hannity had gone into these statistics, then the clip of his interview with the Guam guy might have resonated better.

This appears to be like the Mantis Shrimp thing on an internal basis, down to the cavitation flashes.

Don’t forget her !0,000% return on her $1,000 cattle futures investment. That was a particularly mooving accomplishment for a first timer.
