Overheard While Flying in China

Overheard while listening to a news item about the efficacy of intercessory prayer.

Hay: "From a scientific perspective, I have no problem in accepting that people of faith are healthier, in general, and live longer than people who have no faith."

Chairman: "Unless, of course, they were martyrs. Martyrs tended to have a relatively short life. 

Take the time to have a look at these incredible videos of some guys flying.

  1. So this is this a new Ryan Air super cheap fare i.e. pay extra to actually be allowed on the plane..

    On the prayer thing, it's also said that Atheists are correlated with wealth and education and that wealth and education correlates with longer life, so...

  2. My guess is that the guys flying have LOTS OF FAITH.. in them selves.. screw religion.. you couldn't do shit like that if you feared a god who doesn't exist !

  3. Actually,, I guess you need some sort of faith to Fly Ryan Air as well.. faith that you will get a seat and not staying room and that you have a pound coin when you need a shit !
