Goddidit!

On the AP Wire today was a story about a man who was shot while being robbed. Instead of being mortally wounded, he threw up his hand and the bullet impacted his wedding band. The ring took enough kinetic energy off of the bullet so that it only lodged in the front part of his neck muscles, rather than traversing the various important structures found in the human neck. His wife gives all of the credit to God.

I hope she gives all the credit to God the next time something weirdly bad happens to her. I’ll give all the credit to blind luck, and a 14 karat wedding band.

  1. And I’ll bet she was ticked off when he decided to be cheap and buy 14 karat wedding rings instead of 18 karat.

    Eighteen karat gold would have been much softer and probably wouldn’t have saved his life.

    See honey? God wants men to be cheap.

    I confess that I have no idea what type of wedding ring the guy was wearing. For all I know it was titanium or tungsten. I’m just guessing that it was 14 karat because a lot of guys I know (including myself) went that route in order to have a ring that didn’t get chewed up by constant use.

    Did the article mention whether his finger was still attached?

  4. Bill says:

    It said that he suffered injuries that he would recover from. No broken bones.

    How ironic would it have been if it was his wife that shot him… or his mistress.
