I'm sure the religious community will try to "claim" this phenomena as a sign from god (which god i'm not sure, there's alot of them).

The family better be careful about the press coverage this receives or they will be deluged with every religious nut around the world coming to pray to it or bringing their sick relatives to touch it and be "healed". What a nightmare!

This behavior happens all the time in Arizona. Most notably with plants or burned tortillas that look like jesus. Crowds flock from Mexico.

Religious + desperate = gullible

C'mon, Starcar, don't you remember the partially-eaten grilled*cheese*sandwich that had a vision of Mary or Jesus or something on it that was then sold on Ebay for thousands? How can you discount something that real?

And that usually results in a billing dispute with the water utility. Sometimes it's a gurgle, sometimes a geyser. I've dug up my share of yards to replace the things. Of course it's handy because you always have things you need to bury, and now you have this big trench in someone else's yard...

Both of my houses in New York had all the meters on the side wall in the driveway-which I thought was strange! In the UK the meters are inside the premises.

I thought you were in LA, too...those should have been out by the curb. Where they belong, of course.

DAMNED! I wondered why that grilled cheese was so expensive.
I think I just ate the virgin mary! (I don't think she's a VIRGIN anymore...)
Shucks! Guess I'm going straight to HELL.
