The Daily Post: Any vehicle

12 04 2011

If you could pilot any vehicle, real or fictitious, what would it be?

To me, this felt pretty obvious – the DeLorean

DeLorean Back to the Future

What other vehicle does roads, air and time?! Now, those of you who know me will know my opinion of aeroplanes (they shouldn’t stay in the air), but this is different. Just like a helicopter or a space rocket, you can see and feel how it’s staying up, so that problem is eliminated!

The only issue I may have is getting the guts to reach 88mph!

“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads!”

I want to tell you a story.

When I was at university, I went to the Christian Union meetings every Thursday. Two years ago, valentines day fell on a Thursday, and while we didn’t exactly have a theme to the evening, it was a bit special.

Our CU had about 200 people on the books, and an average attendance of maybe 150. Towards the end of the meeting we sang “How deep the Father’s love for us“, which is a beautiful song [hymn?] in itself.

Normally, at the end of a song we’d segue into another song, or sit and wait for someone to speak, but before any of that could happen, all the lights went out, and the following video came on…. no one sat down, we all stood, silently watching this video. I got goosebumps, and still do every time I watch it.

We were shown it in prayers at work today, and it reminded me of that evening, and I wanted to share this with you. A moving illustration of Grace.

So last year I brought you a list of all the April Fools pranks I found (sadly several links have now broken), and intend to do the same again this year!

Let me know if you find any I’ve missed! …Or if any of these are actually true!

Some I missed are here, including:

Added in the evening, other thing’s I’ve been made aware of this afternoon!:

And again this year, the BBC has published a list of 10 stories that could be April Fools pranks but aren’t
