Croc Update (Thrill-Seekers Edition)

Thrill-seekers snap up new Aussie dare - croc swim: "DARWIN - Swimming face-to-face with a massive saltwater crocodile might not be everyone's idea of fun but thrill-seekers are snapping up northern Australia's new tourist attraction.

Tourists who want to get cozy with a crocodile climb into a clear acrylic cage, dubbed 'the cage of death,' which is about 145 mm (5.7 inches) thick and 2.8 meters (9.2 feet) high, wearing just a pair of swimming goggles and a swimsuit."

I'm not a thrill-seeker, other than seeking thrills from books.

Anyone else amused by the fact the croc swim is in "Darwin?" Everybody out of the gene pool...

Might provide some candidates for next year's Darwin Awards, all right.
