do the right thing and get a ticket: deer rescuers in maryland

Neighbors were ticketed for rescuing a deer from icy water.

Just imagine for a moment that a police officer had happened by the Good Samaritan on the road to Jericho as he was helping the man who had been beaten and robbed (Cf. Luke 10:30ff). And imagine if, in the moment immediately after the Samaritan had helped the beaten man, that same police officer wrote the Samaritan a ticket for not wearing proper lifesaving gear.

This is precisely what happened in Maryland when neighbors bound together to rescue a deer trapped in icy water. After summoning boats and a rope and rescuing the deer, a police officer, who had been standing idly by watching, wrote them tickets for not wearing life preservers.

Seriously, I kid you not. Watch and read.

There comes a time when the letter of the law is disregarded for the preservation of life.

how *not* to propose marriage

for those considering proposing marriage to that special someone while hiking on a beautiful mountain trail, be careful not to let this happen to you.

It began as a romantic hike, and ended with a helicopter rescue after one of the hikers fell and was injured, just moments after she accepted a marriage proposal.

i could go so many places with this:

We’re told after she said, ‘Yes’, she lost her footing and fell onto a large, jagged rock.

so ladies, this is one way to say ‘yes’ but really mean ‘i’d rather die than say yes.’ or, perhaps she was so excited, she lost her bearings and passed out. either way:

marriage proposal fail!
