Ironically, this tale of idiocy takes place in Darwin, Australia. Darwin, as you may recall, came up with the whole "theory of evolution" idea and the concept of "natural selection". Darwin also, as you may recall, was also known as Charles.
Keep in mind: Natural selection. Theory of evolution. The irony will astound. Here we go.
Novon Moshiah wanted to take a picture of a crocodile he saw in the river that he was boating on. The crocodile, on the other hand, wanted to eat the aspiring photographer. Those are two very different agendas.
Moshiah said: "I was shocked, the animal clearly wanted to kill me. One minute I was leaning over the boat teasing it for a picture. The next minute it burst out of the water with incredible speed ... its jaws fully open. I jumped back and the croc landed on the boat and then slapped into the water. I was shaking." Uh-huh.
He was shocked. I'll bet he wasn't as shocked as I am! Who knew?! A crocodile! Not wanting to be teased by an idiot in a boat with a camera! Un-believable! One minute he's making fun of a creature that can easily kill him and the next minute, well, the creature is actually trying to kill him. Wow.
He also said this about the incident and his bewilderment at what had happened: "I began playing with it for a photo. I was pointing at it when it suddenly jumped up at me. I didn't realise that crocs were so aggressive."
He "didn't realize" they were so aggressive? How aggressive, exactly, did he think that they were? Kind of aggressive? Mildly aggressive? Not aggressive at all; in fact, they just ask you politely if they can eat you. No, what he "didn't realize" is that he is an idiot.
Look, I'll say it again. There are animals that prefer to eat meat. Humans are made of meat! Therefore, the animals that prefer to eat meat will have no problem eating a human. Stupid or not. (But most likely stupid.)
Here's a photo of our Darwinian Einstein and the creature that he didn't realize was so aggressive. Holy crap. I don't care who you are or what your personal experience with crocodiles is. If you see something like that in a river and you assume it is anything but very aggressive, well, you would be that guy in the boat.
