I have been remiss in not staying on top of the National Post's continuing series of bi-directional religious conversions, so let me save you several minutes this morning of excruciating illogic:
"Oh, man, I'm going to die, oh, wait, I'm not dead, it's a freakin' miracle, OK, I'm a believer. Also, I don't know the first thing about thermodynamics."
UM ... HANG ON A MINUTE ... Being the natural skeptic that I am, I'm always a bit leery of such touching, heartwarming stories, so it seemed only natural to do a quick Google search to read other coverage of Ms. Elliott's plane crash to see if perhaps, just perhaps, any of her Post piece had been -- how shall I put this delicately? -- embellished.
Lo and behold.
I find it rather odd that Google can't find a single reference to a plane crash involving Ms. Elliott, even as a definitely printable small news piece. Doesn't prove that it didn't happen, of course, but does anyone else find that just the least bit suspicious?
NO, SERIOUSLY ... can anyone find objective corroboration of this story online somewhere? I find it hard to accept that something this newsworthy could have happened and Google is unable to pull up a single hit on it. This just smells funny.
