    (I GOT THIS FROM A FRIEND AT WORK. THOUGHT I'D SHARE . . . )
    Australian lawmakers have been forced to consider passing a law to keep tourists away from dead whales as well as live ones (which are protected by an exclusion zone). This was prompted by an incident, documented on film, in which tourists went up to and even stood on top of a floating whale carcass WHILE IT WAS BEING FED UPON BY GREAT WHITE SHARKS. The tape showed a man standing on top of the whale and actually reaching out to pet a great white as it was taking huge bites out of the carcass. The sad part of this story is that he did not fall and was not eaten by the shark he wanted to pet. Scientists call this phenomenon "evolution missing a chance." [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
    An unnamed Australian legislator lamented being forced to pass a law "to protect people too stupid to protect themselves," but hey, it would not be the first law in that category. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I actually had some photos of this from the newspaper I was gonna post up, but I lost them.

    But yeh, its true. this IDIOT is standing on the back of a whale, talking to a TV crew, while sharks proceeded to stuff their guts on blubber all around.

    Quite frankly, if a shark had jumped out and gobbled ANY of these morons, I woulda cheered for the shark. One of the people 'pating' a shark was the relative of someone who was killed last year. What a fucking goose!

    Anyways, the whale was towed out to sea and blown up eventually.

    So just remember when you come down here for your holidays. Just because the locals are stupid enough to play with sharks, doesnt mean its a good idea! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    this reminds me of the darwin awards. www.darwinawards.com
    this would be an honorable mention i'm sure.
    this also makes me think of the idiot tourists here who want to go and pet the mountain lions and the bighorn sheep in the rockies. then when they do get charged/mauled/etc, they put the animal down like it was his fault. that pisses me off.
