The two 18-year-olds who invited the world to watch them lose their virginity online said they were neither 18 nor virgins, and had no plans to have sex together but insisted that their motives had been pure. - The Straits Times, 23rd July 1998

When Christ once tasked
us to put our lives on the line
and be fishers of men,
was this what He meant -

broad-casting the net
with everything we are,
to save, out of still waters,
what went overboard ?
