Ripley’s Believe It or Not became famous with their comic strip panels in newspapers all over the country, but now they have their own TV show, and thank God! Because when I just read about their amazing stories, I say, there’s no way that could be true! But I guess I can’t say that today since since I actually saw what happened with my own eyes!
One thing that was unbelievable at first but I that ended up believing later on was what a man named Bob Bishop did. He built his own homemade jet that actually worked – even though it’s only 12 feet long! It cost $200,000 to make and 9 years to build but he finally finished it! It’s called the Freedom Jet! It’s the smallest jet in the world and it can fly up to 340 miles per hour!
Then there’s the story of a man named Roberto Ramirez. He is a 21 year old man in the Domincan Republic that walked on all four of his legs like an animal. He had a disease so rare, it didn’t even have a name. It caused his thigh bones to stop growing and turn 90 degrees. Roberto was always told there was no treatment until a doctor actually cared enough and felt bad enough for Roberto. They amputated his legs and gave him prothesthetic ones! Now he can walk upright for the first time in his life! I’m suprised it actually even worked! There was a 50 percent chance it would work and a 50 percent chance he couldn’t walk at all! Another amazing story was the scuba diving dog named Shadow! That’s right a man that had a scuba diving dog and went to the bottom of the ocean floor! The owner noticed that the dog was always trying to follow him underwater when he went scuba diving but he couldn’t – so the owner made him a diving suit and he actually went under, which is amazing! Since then the dog has gotten his own passport and been to the ocean floor 250 times! That’s 250 times more than me! Stupid privileged dog…
So as you can see, sometimes you have to believe the unbelieveable, by believing it’s believable, but only believe it’s believeable by seeing the unbelievable with your own eyes.
