Today, I went on a rollercoaster for the first time. I sat in the back, which was a bad idea. When it ended everyone in front of me turned around and stared. When I asked my friend what was going on, she said I had been screaming the Lord's Prayer the whole time. I hadn't even noticed. FML

Turtles hate you.

what about raphael?

Raphael is just a dick and hates everybody

Yeah, but don't even get me STARTED on Leonardo.

I don't want to come across as a huge douche for replying to the first comment, but this is something that needs to be read. IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE A COMMENTS SECTION WHERE YOU FUCKERS DON'T ARGUE OVER RELIGION AND/OR POST FLAMEBAIT COMMENTS ABOUT IT.

you're a huge douche for using all caps for something unrelated especially at the first comment

Is that rhetorical? or are we still talking about turtles. mmmm

Donatello likes you, but only on Tuesdays. That's when Mikey's not available for him to try his new gadgets on :D

OH MY GOSH i LOVEEEEE MIKEY! he is the most adorable of them all :] Donatello is not bad either :) Rapheal and Leonardo both are kinda obnoxious. Oh, gotta love ninja turtles :D

Now I have that theme song in my head...

WTF this fml wasn't even about turtles..... But on a side note I love Mikey, just hate his color >.

my favorite ninja turtle has to be botticelli or caravaggio.

k people who just comment a FML post w/ a random statement are NOT funny or 'cute' so please stop, & get a lifee. OP- either you're a little young to be on this site, or just have waited a while to be on a rollercoaster.. anyway, this made my night! :)

Raphael may hate everyone, but he's a boss. and Mikey is awesome. they're my 2 favorites :D

who wants pizza?!

well turtles LOVE me

the awkward turtle doesnt love you.

hahahah. what the heckkk. how did you not notice that?

Here it is, a scientific study on Prayer. Results: "1) “Intercessory prayer had no effect on recovery from surgery without complications.” 2) “Patients who knew they were receiving intercessory prayer fared worse.” I'm not going to get into a lot of detail, but essentially they had three groups of patients in a hospital who need the same surgery: ones who weren't getting prayed for, ones who were getting prayed for and knew it, ones that were getting prayed for, but didn't know either way. The ones that knew they were getting prayed for did the worse than the other two, who fared EXACTLY the same. Prayer does nothing people. More info: http://web.med.harvard.edu/sites/RELEASES/html/3_31STEP.html BTW, this thing was double blind and very very well funded, and not done with the intention of disproving prayer, quite the opposite actually.

...Nobody cares.

Actually, that logic is flawed. Just because one does not receive what they prayed for or get a "yes" answer to their prayer does not mean that prayer "doesn't work". Ultimately God decides what happens and can decide "yes", "no", or "not right now". Therefore, just because one doesn't get the answer that they hoped for does not mean prayer is ineffective. God does not work like a genie. I have seen many people get what they asked for as well as not getting what they asked for, and I am sure many people will say that they know people who were healed while people were praying for them. But hey. Yeah, I am a Christian, doesn't mean I'm shovin God down anyone's throats. I just thought I would clarify what prayer is actually. That is actually pretty funny OP!

Yes, No and Wait is misleading. No matter what happens you will get one of those answers.

"Yes" is a coincidence. "No" can only happen if you die. "Wait" is the flawed logic that Christians use to wait for a coincidence.

@99 So, essentially, you agree prayers are useless. I'm glad we agree on that. If your invisible man in the sky ultimately decides what happens, and he has this grand plan for the human race, you think he'd give a fuck about your prayers? Why should he mess up his grand plan for you little people's wishes? @OP, YDI for being overly religious.

That's called God failing the test on purpose. You don't test someone who wrote the laws of the universe itself, dude. You just don't. They WILL screw with you. By the way, saying that the test was "Double blind" doesn't mean that God didn't know.

But saying that God just "fails" the test on purpose is a baseless cop-out.

i agree with Tubasaurus

I agree with tubasaurus too Anything who ACTUALLY thinks prayers are effective haven't really thought it through. Let's assume you believe in God. What makes you think he's going to suddenly up and change things just because you put your palms flat against each other and spouted some requests? I'll accept prayers as being a method of communicating with God, but he isn't some kind of genie @OP: Ok, whatever... I'm surprised you didn't know that. We may do a lot of things unintentionally, but yelling the Lord's Prayer isn' usually one of them. @146: Don't reply to the first comment for visibility. That's not what it's there for. And the comments section of every FML always turns into a debate if possible

Religion is merely a method of gaining a false sense of hope and security. It can make certain people happier in life. People like to believe religion is true, so let them. We all know religion is false, but for those who like or need a little more faith in life, they use religion. Leave them be.

Really? You bother to post your atheistic views why? Are you trying to save the world from their horribly ignorant and mistaken ideas? Bring them to reality? What is wrong with you that you choose to post this here? Just STFU about religion. Either laugh at the FML or go away, don't make this a religious argument HERE of all places. Take your stupid views somewhere else.

it's totally possible. sometimes i'll be singing and i'll just zone out, but still be singing. sometimes ur body just goes on autopilot.

i guess one of those moments when you scream without realizing it.....

Anyone else think of the movie "Click"?

All I did was simply pass on the results of a scientific study. I'm not putting my "atheistic views" into this, I just summarized the study. And don't act like some superior douche who just doesn't want anyone to debate religion and then call my views "stupid" in the same post. It's like you're ASKING to drag this out. and to 99 - Yes, the prayers failed. If i say "Dear God, please let Jim W.'s surgery go successfully without complications" two things can happen. One, Jim's surgery goes fine; or two, it doesn't. If the latter, then the prayer had no effect. They were trying to quantify whether the prayer actually did what it was supposed to, and it didn't. It's bad logic to say "Oh, well, the surgery went very poorly, but later next month he was wheeling himself in his wheelchair because the doctors screwed up so bad, and suddenly a car was going to hit him, but it magically swerved just in time! The prayer DID work, God just interpreted it however he wanted to." That's not what the prayer was about! In this study, the prayers were HIGHLY specific and uniform, not just "Dear God, please bless Jim".

#170--now, assuming heaven and God exist, and that God created everyone and everything (bare with me), in heaven, there is no time. And heaven is where God is, so he is able to see every moment of existence (assuming there is a beginning and an end caused by him, keep baring...), and he gave humans free will. That means we can do what we want, but wait, how can God make a plan if we get to choose what happens? Because he KNOWS what happens, he knows what prayers we will say, because he can see every moment of every person's life. That's how he shapes his plan. So right there, I'm answering Rosalind's question about why would God care about us, if it's 'his plan'? And to respond to #127-Duckasauras with doubt about the 'yes', 'no', and 'wait' answers. What you said about the 'wait', I can't really say anything that will win me an argument in God's defense, that will just remain a part of the never ending debate about coincidence vs. God's choice. But as far as the 'no' answer goes... of course you can get a 'no' not just a 'wait' if you don't die. For example... if someone prayed that their parents let them go to a concert... and then their parents didn't let them go. Then the next day on the news, they hear about a mass murder that happened at that same concert. (I've never been to a concert, so I don't know about security, probably there are no chances of someone getting in with a gun, but don't give me any grief about it...). First of all, that's an example of a 'no' that one can get as an answer to a prayer... and second, that's an example of a possibility WHY God would say no to a prayer... to keep the person alive in this case. Once again that turns into the debate of coincidence vs. God's choice, which truly can't be won by either side.

And chveya, God specifically tells us NOT to test him. So what do you think is going to happen? He's not going to give up on his word. If a parent tells their child, "don't watch TV," if the kid decides to watch TV anyway, and the parent finds out, the result isn't just going to be nothing happening, as if he/she had never told his/her kid. It's essentially the same here. God tells us not to test him, and if we do (ie through that study), the result isn't going to be what would theoretically happen, that the ones prayed for stay healthy, and the one not prayed for died. If he had never told us NOT to test him, then yeah the results probably would have been different. But people did something that God specifically told them not to do. Therefore something different has to happen.

If this religion had been masterminded by just one manipulative genius, I would be in awe. This is ridiculous. You guys have some way of dodging EVERYTHING that shines doubt on your religion. God doesn't like being tested? Well that's awfully convenient! Look, would it really be a GOOD thing for God (Mr. Omnibenevolent) to care more about his ego and 'not being tested' than he does about the lives of thousands of people this test was being performed on? Is that what you think is right, and moral? To me, this study does a damn good job of suggesting prayer is entirely ineffective, whether you think God is real or not. However, the burden of proof is NOT on us unbelievers, it is on you, because you are the ones making the claim. If you want to claim prayer works, than YOU find some way of proving it.

actually you did act like a "superior douche." if you don't want people to share their religious views, don't share yours. enough said.

You Deserved It.

@bbobe900000 This was a double blind study! The people that we're praying for the better of their loved ones didn't know that they were part of a study. They were not the ones that we're "testing" God. So why would they have to suffer for it? Seems that God is unfair!?! Or is this another study that gets closer to proving there is none? Answer for yourself.

Ugh, this explanation is beyond bullshit and is not cannon of prayer. the "yes, no, wait" explanation is obviously a tactic to confuse people in the attempt to reinforce belief in god. Personally I find prayer magic to be absurd.

You make the mistake of assuming that the simple act of praying HAS to bring about result if God exists. Do you realize how stupid such an assumption is?

Notice something about what you said. You said that some people got what they wanted, and some didn't. Doesn't it seem possible that maybe, just maybe, the outcomes of their problems were RANDOM and perhaps, not even remotely affected by prayer?

omg seriously. I loled at this

That's quite a new take on just screaming, "OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!"

lol, don't worry next time, rollercoasters are pretty safe.

yeah, which is why they have to strap you in. which is why i much prefer water slides.

Strapping you in MAKES you safe.

oh yeah, it's not USUAL that someone dies from a rollercoaster ride lol

WIN of the century! LMFAO I wish I could've heard that..!

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

what the fuck is ur problem douche? u shouldnt make fun of other peoples religions (even though im atheist).

#6 should learn to be more tolerant, sheesh...

"When you die, nothing happens ... once your paper I hope someone prints the bible on you." lol

well you wont be paper if you get cremated. however. dane cook is hilarious.

Dane Cook is horrendously overrated

dane cook is an asshole for that. he might be really hott and pretty funny but i dont like him for that one joke

Agrees with #89, Dane Cook is the most overrated piece of mediocre crap I've ever listened to. How do idiots like this get so famous? A lot of his material is stolen from other (funnier underground) comedians.

Dane Cook sucks! he is an annoying douche bag. Really he fucking sucks and the people who like him are also douche bags. He is not funny at all, just annoying

i agree 100%. i love any type of comedy, and almost every comedian, but when watching dane cook, i just felt embarrassed for him, and it just reminds me of a bad family guy sketch (only much more dramatic).

That joke was freakin awesome, how can you not like it?

what does OP mean?

The Lord's Prayer, (from the King James Bible): Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

OMG ROTFL!!! Op - oversized penis! Wow that cracked me up so hard!!!!

@13 I think you misinterpreted 10's comment.

Orangutan popsicle

#6: yeah ok mr. atheist

Why don't you actually reply to him? Dumbass.

I clicked reply to him, but then my browser refreshed so I guess it messed up? Fuck you

As far as magic words go, I'm more fond of Harry Potter spells. They're probably more effective, actually.

Wingardium Leviousa! Or just stick to brooms ;)

You are made of epic win.

No he's made of nice fuzzies. Or he's a Ninja Turtle in disguise.....

you are fat and ugly and will never get laid

@ #230. Um... like you will? @ #9. I love your post. @ OP. I lol'd.

If it was a wooden coaster YDI. NEVER SIT IN THE BACK ON THOSE. I do, but because I am insane! If it wasn't wood, then FYL
