(Newser) – Stop the presses! Everybody swoon! Ryan Gosling saved a woman from being hit by a taxi last night. Our winning headline appears above, but we couldn't stop ourselves from brainstorming a few alternatives:

  • "Gosling Continues Superhero Streak, Saves Woman's Life" The news came to light after British reporter Laurie Penny tweeted, "I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened." Recalling that the Gos also once broke up a street fight, Annie Georgia Greenberg declares on Refinery 29, "Bruce Wayne, meet your match."
  • "Hey Girl, Don't Step in Front of That Car" OK, so what Gosling actually said was, "Hey, watch out!" according to Penny.

  • "Woman Saved From Taxi, Nearly Murdered by Jealous Onlookers" Gosling's identity was all but confirmed by a woman standing next to Penny, who said, "You lucky bitch."
  • "Millions of Women Fall Unconscious After Gosling Heroics" Coverage of the incident includes lines like: "Laurie Penny … just had the dreamiest brush with death ever." (New York Observer), and "Did anyone else just get weak in the knees?" (Jezebel).
  • And, one actual headline from The Frisky: "Ryan Gosling Returns To NYC, Saves Pedestrian’s Life, Leads My Libido Out Of Hibernation."

As long as I don't have to worship him, and they don't expect us to tithe 10% of our money to him, I don't care what they call him. Even if he's going around doing nothing but good deeds doesn't mean anything except to the people he's doing the good deed for (and possibly their loved ones), it won't get him into heaven that's for sure, even if he is a 'Godly' person, just ask all those on this forum that teach about "Christ" or "Jesus", since so many of them claim to be the only ones who know the "True Word", or the "True Jesus". Guess I'll be sitting around drinking warm tea, playing cards with my buddies/loved ones who SWORE they'd be in heaven, but by all accounts I've heard, no matter how squeaky clean these people were, they surely didn't have the "True" meaning of any of it, so therefore, they didn't 'make the cut', Ah, well, I'd rather be with them anyway than a bunch of stuck up religious cretins who want to show how much better they are than anyone else... that sure don't sound like heaven to me, at least not one I'd want to be a part of (I've seen enough prejudice on earth, that I sure don't want to be a part of it in death also... sounds kinda like the earth I've lived on all of my life - at least I can have some fun here and get away from that sort of person).
