How Myths Are Made
This is how myths and urban legends are started. Somebody with a creative bent and imaginative mind sees things in an otherwise just an ordinary snapshot (above), like the toasted bread that's supposed to show the image of Virgin Mary sold on eBay and bought by a casino supposedly because it has become a part of pop culture, this time it's supposedly the faces of five teenagers from Paete who perished in an accident in Famy, Laguna the other day. It's a cheap shot.
Regarding the accident, the driver was asking for forgiveness in what happened. Well and good but that should not get him off the hook.
