Oh! I think I know what this one is referring to. How bizarre.

It's supposedly "BAX (A B727-200C) aircraft flight 705BX" which sustained hail damage over Canada on the 11th of August.

You think this is true? Well, think again! Boy, are you easily fooled. Anyone with the least bit of common sense could see that it's not true (except for the part about the Presbyterian minister, the budgie and the carburetor from a 1986 Pinto).

Boy, some people's kids will believe anything!

I didn't realize there were people living in the lakes of Oklahoma.

How many lakes are there in Oklahoma?

Oklahoma Lakes
quote:
The state has 34 major reservoirs containing more than 13 million acre-feet of water. In addition, thousands of smaller lakes serve as valuable sources of drinking water, irrigation, flood control, recreation, and habitat for fish and wildlife.
Apparently, most of the lakes are man made.

People do, too, disappear from the lakes. According to the Army Corps of Engineeers,"Children are the most vulnerable since they're too young to understand the dangers. They can disappear in just seconds -- usually with tragic results."

Oh, yeah, the Corps is talking about not wearing life jackets.
