"Thank God I'm Alive!"
    #2589299 - 04/22/04 01:08 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Just watched a TV show called "I'm Still Alive" wherein about 8 people deliberately put themselves in harm's way doing some extreme sport or activity. They survive an "accident" (no such thing) wherein they "should" have been killed, but manage to survive. The standard response is "Thank God I'm alive!" or "It's a miracle I'm alive!"

The Swami sentiment is "Thank God I'm not an idiot!" to attempt such foolishness in the first place. Awareness and rationality is the real miracle.

The proof is in the pudding.

I do shit all the time and I'm still alive.  Is that a miracle?  Yes.  Oh, wait, I didn't do it on purpose.  It was by accident. 

Is there a difference in luck when the shit you do is by accident v. on purpose?  :grin:

I remember the day I slammed into the back of a big huge pick up truck.  Just minding my own bidness, when out of the blue, there's a red light ahead of me and a bunch of stupid cars just sitting there, parked in front of it.  There wasn't even any cross traffic.

WTF did they stop for the red light if there was no cross traffic?

So, WHAM!!! If those stupid cars hadn't been parked at the red light, I wouldn't have accidentally smashed into that stupid pick up truck.  Does this count?  :grin:

Your kidding, right? What a ridiculous premise for a show.

I think you got the wrong impression. The activities were caught on film (boat racing, ski-mobile racing, base-jumping and other dare devil stunts) submitted to the show then the survivors were interviewed.

Seems many had brain damage before they had brain damage.

Good question counselor.  :shake:

WTF am I? The spokesman for retarded white guys?  :rolleyes:

*psychologist mode off*

Well the latino guys in the East L.A. barrio and the "bros" in the Oakland ghetto risk their lives everyday doing "normal" activities so already get a regular dosage of the adrenalin edge; where as white middle-class yuppies are bored to tears.
