    Exclamation Steve Irwins everywhere...

    While I admire the Aussies (never seen a pic of a fat broad on one of their beaches) I have to question their sanity.

    I was watching one of those Animal Attack type shows that showed footage of Aussies fishing/wading in croc infested rivers. WTF?

    Most Americans cringe if they see a spider but these crazy SOBs are mingling with friggin dinosaurs.

    The question is...crazy or ballsy?

    Well, being from the country concerned I'm not really well placed to answer your question due to bias. I do have a boatload of venenous/dangerous animal stories, however.

    As long as they (unlike patsy* fans) do not sexually abuse those little creatures I am OK with it.

    Oh yeah I forgot about that...don't you have the top 10 most venomous snakes over there? Then there are the Great Whites and those mofo box jellyfish. I saw those shows too.

    Yeah - I've had quite a few close calls with snakes and spiders of one sort or another - the jellyfish - the really bad ones - are generally found in sea water in the north of the country. They shut beaches for months at a time, so not good.

    Ever been on a Golf Course in Florida? If so, I guarantee you've been within a few feet of a 10'+ Gator. Guarantee it.

    Didnt the Brits try to hide a whole bunch of ballsy and crazy people down there (Penal Colonies?) back in the 1800's?

    I'm sure the blood runs thick in some still......

    If you hit one in the water, just take the drop!

    Crocs are a tad bit more dangerous than gators - though I'd like to be near neither if I had a choice.

    That's like saying a .45 is more dangerous than .380...

    Yeah - you're probably right - though I do have to say that it would be very easy to get membership at a golf course with crocs in it - the mortality rate and turnover of membership would be very high.

    You wouldn't catch me 5 miles from either a gator or a croc, but if I had a choice to have to go near one it would have to be the smaller reptile.
