    Default Expedition Kayaker Killed By Croc

    A kayaker on an expedition sponsored by Eddie Bauer was recently killed by a croc along a tributary to the Congo. Makes floating past brown bears seem kinda tame.

    ...and while dramatic and sad, really tragic, any one of us could get nicked or dead by bear, a Ford, a fall, or by a bandit, an illness, or bad luck.

    So Birdstrike, I'm sure you will agree with me... lets go flying, or rafting, or climbing, hunting, or to work.

    Life is short...play hard.

    Maybe we better play it safe and sit on the couch and live our lives watching TV or playing video games.

    Confucius say:
    Happier is life of man focused on unbridled procurence of big butt
    and living life on edge
    than slowly being sucked into crack of comfy couch.

    Ah, it is so grasshopper.

    No arguments from me. Most would choose to burn out rather than wither away in a care home. At least it wasn't a hippo that got him. Even though a more likely way to get killed in Africa, dying by hippo doesn't have the same awe factor that death by croc does.
