I saw this on TV this morning and the bullet hit dead center on the cell phone. This man definitely has someone upstairs looking out for him!

But the headline makes it seem like he put the cellphone in his pocket because he had a feeling he should do it. After reading the story, it was a rather arbitrary move that paid off big time.

Did he get message through his cell phone? Hope he won't be charged too much of a roaming fee.

The bible says: "He who puts his cellphone in the upper center pocket of his blue overalls shall not be killed by a stray bullet shot by some redneck who is hunting in the woods behind your house."
