    Dude, never be ashamed to tell people what worked. Or appeared to work. Or, in your mind, what seemed to be connected to what worked.

    If YOU feel your prayer accomplished something feel free to share that.


    With the above fault, I wanted to log it: "Naked Chicken Danced around tube, fault corrected."
    WEPS threatened to keel haul me if I did. Ended up with a compromise. I logged, "Fault cleared during troubleshooting, was unable to identify the action which restored system operations. Intermittent fault." But I was free to tell anyone about it.

    Offered the bones to the Nukes when the distilling system went down a month later, too.

    I thought that the meaning of life ("42") had a strong connection to "Connect 4" - it happens to also be 6 x 7. When I thought about this and checked the numbers of yellow and red pieces I found something unexpected:

    That set was the one in the mental ward I was in recently. Also I was reading a Gideon's Bible recently upside down - I was reading the 6th chapters, trying to annoy God.... then a sealed NIV Bible I got from my sister had the contents upside down!

    Synchronicity I think. Things that appear related but are not.

    One time you prayed and felt something. An emotional response to stress or something, prayer as a release mechanism.

    Modern medicine acknowledges aspects of ancient traditions do have benefits.

    Still nothing supernatural,.

    When I Christian connects prayer with something positive it is god's will. When prayers are unanswered it is also god's will.

    That connect 4 set might be one of the only ones like it in the world -
    e.g. here is an example of a set with 21 of each colour:

    But it was the first time I'd ever tried counting the pieces.
    The Bible being printed upside down was even more significant because I had been reading a Bible upside down recently...

    Ever bought a car?

    I have gone years without paying much attention to car ads. Then I was in the market for a car. I saw kajillions of ads.
    It wasn't that any company's advertising budget increased 80-fold, it was just that I was geared to pay attention to them.

    After I bought my CR-V, I stopped noticing much of any car ads, except those for CR-Vs. It seemed for about two months that every other commercial was for Honda, half of those for the car I was driving.

    And the cars are everywhere! For the first month, it seemed that every parking lot I stopped in had at least one CR-V in it!

    This was not a 'sign,' however. Just a predilection on the part of my own brain.

    It's funny; I was just the other day reading an article about the Baader-Meinhof Effect.

    Gods work in mysterious ways.

    Come to think of it, why do mysteries exist? Could it be that gods like soap operas?
