The UK Times Online has this story:
“Catapult boy is eaten after taunting crocodile in pen”
This just has to be up for a Darwin Award and is one of the stupidest things I’ve heard of someone doing who is not drunk (the kid was 9 so I’m making an assumption) or on drugs:
A schoolboy who climbed over a fence into a crocodile enclosure and taunted the animals with sticks and a catapult was dragged into the water and eaten . . . The children shot at the animals with catapults and beat them with sticks.
This is not a matter of knowing good from bad or right from wrong. This is a matter of ignoring every animal instinct that we have hardwired into our brain that tells us not to piss off a large-animal-that-can-eat-you unless you are high up in the branches of a tree and said large-animal-that-can-eat-you cannot climb up. I mean, this is stuff we figured out back in our pre-sapien days.
