Very Superstitious ...
You've heard it before...
"You know, ... I just had a dream about so and so, that I've not heard from in 10 years, and 2 days later I got a letter from her!" "There's definitely ESP, or some not understood 6th sense, like telepathy over immeasurable distances."
As a dedicated Atheist, and believer in science, and the Scentific Method, I don't have to tell you what I think of that. Well here's another story...
2 days ago, I get a call in the late afternoon from my recently divorced ex-wife's brother... "Hi, Treat2, it's so and so."I say "Yeah, wazzup?" (I already know, since my ex-wife was in a horrendous car accident 8 months ago, on a ventilator, part of her brain was dead. etc., etc.)
He says: "XXX died."
I say: "Ok."
(FYI. The reason for my response and the rest of the conversation I'm not getting into.)
Anyway, ... At the time of the call I was at a friend's apartment, after having helping him do several errands via my car, since he has a broken leg and is unable to drive. --- We used the car all day long, starting and stopping. Turning the car engine off and on. No problem. Plenty of gas.
So, the ex-brother in-law says, "She died at such and such hospital this morning and I'm leaving now, and just calling to give you the address, if you wanted to go. And to let you know."
I thank him, and during a short conversation lete him know I "had my closure" months ago. (Again, I'm not going to explain what happened or why. And let him know I've no desire to go to the hospital, but very much appreciated the call, as her existence and "state" a few days after the car accident was intentionally hidden from me.)
Subsequently, having done plenty of work and driving a suggest to my friend that we grab a bite to eat, and he agrees.
We go outside. I put the keys in the ignition and all that happens is the starter moter turns over, and starts the main car engine which then immediately dies not more than 1 second later.
End of story.
Now, for the supertitious monkeys out there... That was the curse of my ex-wife. Her immortal soul avenged my not having gone to see her dead body at the hospital.
Yeah right. Next, I'll be posting the Hand of God! (Rather, a view of my hands.) Further empirical evidence of my Godly existence and immeasurable power.
Care to share any idiotic crap about our Internet of immortal souls, as related by friendly chimps?
