Walking On Water

Maybe that little trick is best left to the experts as an evangelist drowns giving it the old college try:
An evangelist who tried replicating Jesus' miracle of walking on water has reportedly drowned off the western coast of Africa.

Pastor Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle, and he attempted it from a beach in Gabon's capital of Libreville.

"He told churchgoers he'd had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus," an eyewitness told the Glasgow Daily Record.

"He took his congregation to the beach saying he would walk across the Komo estuary, which takes 20 minutes by boat. He walked into the water, which soon passed over his head and he never came back."
So as the water is passing over your head, at what point do you think "OK, maybe this isn't going to work?"

Super Mini

While I'm on the subject of green, check out this Mini Cooper:
  • zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds
  • 80 mpg
  • top speed of 150 mph
  • five engines - one 160 HP electric engine in each wheel and a small internal combustion engine to recharge the batteries
  • all-electric range of 200 - 250 miles with a total range of 900+ miles
Where do I buy one of these?

The Green Way to Go

Because poor mother earth doesn't do a good job of rotting your corpse, a company in Sweden is offering an ecological way to dispose of yourself after your breathing permit has expired.

Ouch

Now this is more like it when it comes to game shows. Not only is there a reward for winning, but there are also consequences for losing.
