I don't see how you could joke about that after listening to it.

It really is a show of how astoundingly delusional humans are/can be. We can feel a connection when not only is there not one, but it is impossible to form one. It's both beautiful and horribly fucking hilarious (read: pathetic; or in this case downright moronic) in the worst way possible. It's basically like seeing some creepy stalker dude thinking that he is genuinely in love and loved back by some random woman he doesn't even know except its even worse than that because this dumb motherfucker thinks that these things are thinking anything about him. Fact is if they are it's nothing more than instinct... and it is all instinctual...and when the instinct kicks in...he'll be in the news post mortem. It's amazing that anyone with anything past (or even ending with) a high school level of knowledge in zoology can think that animals such as sharks, crocs, etc. are somehow "friends" to humans. "Oh, he didn't eat me and we're hanging out. MUST BE MAH FRAN!" Zero. Fucking. Sympathy. (SW's next album title confirmed)

Darwin's theory at work.

That audio is fake. The real audio was never actually released to the public and is forever in the possession of the producer of the movie.

Could not agree more.  Don't get me wrong, it's awful that two people were mauled by a bear like that, but setting up camp next to them and thinking all will be well is just asking for a painful death.

It's been a really horrible week in my hometown, and that alligator incident at The Grand Floridian are one of the many things that was really tragic that week. I haven't said much about it, mainly because of my ties with the company. I can't imagine what those parents are feeling. I will say this: In that hotel, and the other Disney hotels in that lagoon and other locations around the Walt Disney World resort, there are not only signs that say "No Swimming" but "Please Do Not Feed Wildlife" that includes an alligator symbol. That same signage is at the Grand Floridian. It is illegal in the state of Florida to feed alligators, because the gator will become comfortable with human surroundings, and will attack. If a gator is reported to have been tainted such as, it is usually hunted down and killed.

Disney's number one priority for their guests and employees is safety. They are a reacting company, and I guarantee you after what happened last week, you'd have to toss your kid into the lake for them to get in there from now on. I just hope they don't take away the boats and kayaks.

Well, I absolutely recall the No Swimming signs, but I'm honestly drawing a blank on the Don't Feed The Wildlife. And even if it is there, with a small alligator symbol, that's a lot different than a Danger-Beware Of Alligators sign. They have one of those by the Basketball/Shuffleboard courts near Kidani Village. That gets your attention.

Disney cannot set up a beach like location, with beach chairs and all, and think a small alligator symbol on a Don't Feed will be sufficient.

As you say, Disney IS a reactive company, but they are not a preventative company. I said in a post earlier, how many people feel out of the trams before they put the doors on? I'm sorry, but announcing children should sit in the middle is not sufficient.

We were diving in Cozumel last year and they had spotted a 4' saltwater croc right at the little pier we do our safety stops between dives.   Crystal clear 4-6' water. I was a little bummed we missed it.  I would have slid in the water with it for some vid.  Any bigger than that...no.  We did a few dives with Bull Sharks a few years back, that got the old blood pumping!  One of my other bucket list critters would be hanging with Komodo Dragons in Indonesia.  The boats make stops in the national park during Dive liveaboard trips to visit them.

If that's the picture of the croc in the article, there NO WAY that it's only 6'. Looks closer to 10'.
