While that is great, it is concerning that he needed instructions on how to hold a cloth on a bleeding wound and splint a fracture. There are just some things that should be innate.

I've learned how to splint a fracture, but I'd like to look it up just in case if I had to splint one for real. Better than flying blind.

he wrapped the app around the wound?

You know because like god wanted to kill all those other 200,000 people for no reason but wanted you to live cause like you have an iPhone and kids.

Bingo. That's what bugs me about the "it's a miracle! God saved me!" talk right there in the midst of whatever disaster it is while the relatives of those who didn't make it are all there to hear.

Still, happy story he survived, yes.

Megain: he wrapped the app around the wound?

Heh. I was wondering myself, what, he pressed the phone to a cut or used it to make a tourniquet or what? 'Cuz obviously you'd use it to CALL if you can, but other than that I had no idea.

Never attribute to blind ragging luck that which you can call a miracle from god.

Maybe god saved him cause he was better than the other 200,000 people. He was american after all.

Didn't you hear, all those dirty black Haitians made a pact with Satan? That's why God killed and torture them, and left this man alive.

Or maybe God protects those who use the iPhone?

The other 50 to 200 thousand were not in His sight that day and therefore snuffed it.

Apparently, Mr. Spock was wrong. The needs of the few, or one DO outweigh the needs of the many.

Maybe it's true. Maybe Pat Robertson is right. Maybe it is a sin not to be white and rich enough to have an iPhone.

I'm thinking of converting to Whitism. Hell I thought I was joking until I Googled it, but now, I just may.

I think have seen the light.

As soon as I saw the guy mentioned God, I knew this thread would be a total flame.

Can't you people just allow other people to have beliefs different from your own? Isn't that what most of you are rambling about in the first place, that Christians oppress you?

FARK is just as intolerant as any where else it seems, even though you all preach individual rights.

Mr. Spock was wrong here because God is not logical. If he was logical, he wouldn't be such a sick fark.

Yeah, I share the sentiments of a lot of Fark'ers here... God had nothing to do with... Just at the wrong place at the wrong time and lucky there were some cheese-eating surrender monkeys in the vicinity to haul your ass from the rubble.

I want to know how trapped he was if he as able to use an iphone app, fix himself up, write stuff in his note book, and used his SLR camera to see his surroundings.


And yeah, sure people can believe what they want, but there are some farking serious questions totally ignored by the 'Thanks To God I'm Alive' crowd. That is not only insulting beyond belief, but totally and utterly selfish. As such, they should really keep their farking mouths shut in public, especially when there's so many who God didn't decide to farking help. Assholes.

Hey, hey, hey. You guys have it all wrong. You aren't supposed to fear death. It's supposed to be a release from the struggles of earth and reuniting with the creator. Sure, it looks all retarded when you view death as a punishment.

People are supposedly kept around on earth because they still have business to conduct. Just because you survived doesn't mean it's all going to be unicorns and roses.

Jimmy Boarfett: I'm just impressed he got a signal. That thing is a paperweight in high density areas, especially on the web.

I'm going to go ahead and assume that there aren't alot of people in Haiti tying up the 3G network with their $1,000/yr phones...

Also, when a rescuee spouts crap like:
"After nearly three days, he was finally found by a French rescue team. He said he believes "God was present with me, and he decided he wanted me to survive."" It should be optional for the rescuers to stick them back in whatever hole they pulled the person out of.

The guy literally had to use his first world toy to look up "PUT DIRECT PRESSURE ON YOUR WOUND" that anyone who has ever walked past a room full of off worlders taking a first aid class should have known.

Also, they toned down his leg injury from initial reports. Originally they were saying he he looked up how to apply a tourniquet. Someone either told him or told reporters that a tourniquet on a leg for 60+ hours is a bad thing unless it was hanging off.

So I wouldn't announce that we've entered the next age of human knowledge yet there, Mr. Postman.
