Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes-Benz?
For a first post, ever, I'm going to take the ever so easy potshot at fundamentalist twit Christians. I have a student who, being completely serious, made praying part of her plan for an egg-drop contest. "Mr V. , I prayed for my egg and it survived, so prayer works." Nevermind that she also swathed said egg in foam rubber and attached a freakin' parachute to it. I wonder if she'd have attributed the egg not surviving to her sky daddy as well...
