A discussion about the downed Air France flight brought up the following:

joe420: One of my teachers told me a story that one of his relatives was about to board a plane but had a bad nicotine craving. He went and bought a pack of cigarettes and hurried back trying not to miss his plane, but he ended up missing it anyway. That plane crashed a few hours later and everyone was killed onboard. He still smokes to this day because cigarettes saved his life.

Jesus, every time he unwraps a cigarette pack, it probably feels like the holy communion. (via forums.somethingawful.com)
