All their good for is to have a short laugh at the cover in the checkout aisle at a grocery store.

A few days ago Sky One (major Satellite network) showed a The Simpsons episode (I think it was "Marge vs. Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays") where Bart is watching TV and an unspecified crocodile hunter with an Australian accent was about to wrestle with a crocodile and then Lisa switched it over and when they switched back it showed the lake and a severed arm floating by, then it was turned over by Homer.

huh Too soon?

Probably. No doubt it will get some complaints.

woha another stingray attack.



Quote:
LIGHTHOUSE POINT, Fla. - An 81-year-old boater was in critical condition Thursday after a stingray flopped onto his boat and stabbed him, leaving a foot-long barb in his chest, authorities said.

"It was a freak accident," said Lighthouse Point acting fire Chief David Donzella. "It's very odd that the thing jumped out of the water and stung him. We still can't believe it."

Fatal stingray attacks like the one that killed "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin last month are rare, marine experts say. Rays reflexively deploy a sharp spine in their tails when frightened, but the venom coating the barb usually causes just a painful sting for humans.

James Bertakis of Lighthouse Point was on the water with his granddaughter and a friend Wednesday when the stingray flopped onto the boat and stung Bertakis. The women steered the boat to shore and called 911.

Surgeons were able to remove some of the barb, and Bertakis, who also suffered a collapsed lung, underwent surgery late Wednesday and early Thursday, the Miami Herald reported on its web site.

Ellen Pikitch, a professor of marine biology and fisheries at the University of Miami, who has been studying stingrays for decades, said they are generally docile.

"Something like this is really, really extraordinarily rare," she said. "Even when they are under duress, they don't usually attack."

Just read about it. For an "extremely rare" occurence, there have been two cases in just over one month. o_O
