    The other day, me and my mom went to hear a concert of Mozart's Great Mass in C minor. We parked underground and entered the elevator with three other people. This one woman asks "does everybody here have tickets?" and my mom and me said "no, we don't." The woman asked "do you want free tickets?" and we said "of course!" She told us that her guests couldn't make it, and she has two extra tickets.

    We got off the elevator and the woman took us to the Will Call box, where she acquired an envelope with two tickets in it. She handed it to us, said "Enjoy!" and exited the building. :)

    I'd love to hear similar stories from other people.

    A few years ago we (my girlfriend, me and a bunch of friends) were flying a powerkite on a plateau ontop of a hill. The wind was very strong, we all had to hold the bar so nothing went wrong so a total of 40 stone of weight was just enough. A suddent gust blasted us ripping it from our hands but my girlfriend held on.
    She was thrown god knows how high into the air and across the whole playing field. She smashed into the ground and didn't move. We all thought the worse running over to her but yea - she only fractured a tiny piece of her C4 (neck).

    Lost weeks worth of memories too, they came back eventually though. The whole thing could have been so much worse.

    When I was 17 I had a tuition teacher who was utterly drop dead gorgeous. Needless to say, I had a massive crush on her.

    6 years later, we bumped into each other the streets. Naturally, she remembered me because I guess she kind of knew I had a crush on her. We exchanged contacts and arranged dinner.

    Watched Love Actually on our first date on Christmas Eve, the rest was history. It was totally, utterly, completely, unfathomable but just 6 years ago.

    Does this count? :D

    Yes Actually.

    The highlight wasn't the physical high I guess. It's how with hindsight that you think back and you just, marvel at how improbable fate, or life is, sometimes, beyond your most imaginative reckoning.

    Whilst i'm the most anti-religious person in this forum, i have to confess, there was this one occasion, where my brother had been in a car crash, i was 21 at the time, and him about 14, and the doctors didn't think he had much chance of survival, a fully loaded arctic lorry had crashed into our small Renault car at 80mph, anyway all his internal organs were bleading, most of his ribs were broken, along with his skull, blood was building up in his brain, his heart was even scarred and his survival rate was less than 4%. Anyway my mum called a priest who was a friend of the family to come and pray for him in hospital, and i laughed at how ridiculous that was at the time, saying she should should be spending her time contacting medical specialists and not priests, well 3 days later my brother walked out of hospital, and less than 2 weeks later all his bones were healed, there was no sign of any heart scarring when they did another x-ray and cat scan, and it was like he had never been in an accident, he doesn't even have a single scar from it, i simply cant explain it. Perhaps he was young and his body was simply producing large amounts of stem cells, but something could definately be considered 'miraculous' about that.

    This isn't much of a miracle but I was travelling alone on a plane a couple of years ago and I had a plastic bag full of papers and food that broke and I had absolutely no idea how I was going to carry them along with my hand luggage. I asked the woman next door whether she had a plastic bag and she said yes I always carry one in case of emergencies. I couldn't believe my luck!

    Some time ago I was at a light. It was out turn to go and just as I gave it gas my car stalled. This was a four way four lane on each side light, two for each direction of traffic. The other cars in the other lane start going and out of nowhere comes a speeding car that's running the red light and slams into the car that went ahead. I was in the position that if my car didn't stall we would have been the first ones to get hit.

    That was the scariest thing, makes life look really fragile. I don't know how the other driver fared but they had to rush them to the hospital. I made a little picture so it makes more sense...

    Several years ago, a man ended up in a river in a residential neighborhood after leaving the road on a dangerous curve. His car was quickly filling with water and he feared drowning as he was trapped in the vehicle. Out of nowhere, a man handed him a garden hose, and he was able to continue to breathe while he was underwater, and awaiting rescue. As quickly as the mysterious man appeared, he vanished. Most people seem to think it was an angel. :eek:

    I was loading dumptrucks with a Komatsu excavator, digging out a pond. I was staying 6 feet or so away from the edge, which really should have been far enough. I happened to look out the cab and down by the track at one point and noticed the dirt under it was in the process of collapsing. I spun stick around and slammed the bucket down in the bottom of the 10' deep pond right as the ground collapsed completely. So now I'm hanging there with one track on the ground, and the other held up by the boom. Took about 10 minutes to wiggle my way out of that situation. I didn't even have time to be scared until later. I was afraid to get out afterward because I knew my knees weren't going to hold me up. :eek:

    Having tried this many times as a kid in a pool, I don't think it's possible. Pulling air through a garden hose is incredibly difficult, you just can't build up enough pressure to pull it through. Maybe if the hose was a foot long but if the car is sinking I would suspect that he was 20 feet underwater.

    It is possible, its called siphoning, people use this method to jack petrol from other peoples cars, was very popular in the 70's. Its quite gross though because you basically have to suck or blow whatever your trying to get through.

    No, I think we're thinking of two separate things. I'm pretty sure being 20+ feet underwater makes it very hard to pull air from the surface through a hose.

    Sounds pretty urban legendish to me.

    I've also tried breathing through a hose at the bottom of a pool. It does not work very well at all. It took a huge amount of energy (and plugging my nose) to get even the tiniest breath of air from a mere 7-8 feet down. I also had to wrap it around a rock to hold the other end of the hose to keep it from falling inside the pool and filling with water. (which is what happened the first time I tried it.)
    Plus, what kind of person (I am not entertaining the idea of angels) disappears rather than finding out what happens to the person in the sinking car? Something a little fishy about this 'miracle'.

    When I was 13 years old I finally awoke at 4:29 am because the battery backup for the computer in my room kept beeping. At first, the beep was slow, beeping maybe once a minute. Quickly it increased to a beep every 10 seconds, and at 4:29 it the beep became a continuous tone. I got out of bed and turned it off.

    An hour later my parents awoke me because they received a phone call that my grandma had died in her sleep. Later I found out that her time of death was 4:29. I was very close to that grandma and to this day the day she died is worst day of my life. I feel like this experience was her little way of saying goodbye.
