Jesus wants youTwo New Zealanders – pilot Owen Wilson (no, not that guy) and his mate Grant Stubbs – were flying the hilly Pelorus Sound when their microlight ran out of fuel mid-flight. The men were panic-stricken. And as most people do in times of crisis, they quickly remembered people talking about that Jesus guy, and went to prayin’.

“Oh Lord, I’ll never do (enter your own expletive and sin here) again if you just get me out of here alive.”
