Crocodile Cage Diving

You’ve probably seen the shark cage posts on this blog before, but I had no idea until today you could also dive with man eating crocs. Looks like Australia is the only place to do it. Check out these pics and amazing video of the experience. Be sure to lather yourself in coconut scented sunscreen before you jump in. It makes the crocodiles aggressive!

Snake-eating spider

Cairns, Australia man Ant Hadleigh snapped this golden orb spider attempting to eat a brown tree snake in his Freshwater backyard. He estimated the tree snake to be around half a metre long and was alive for “an hour or more” after being caught in the spider’s web, before finally succumbing to the crafty arachnid’s venom.

Upscale camper design

From Tony House Blog: If a Moroccan tent and a trailer had a baby, and that baby went to charm school, it might look just like the Opera. The Opera is manufactured by the Netherlands-based Your Suite in Nature (YSIN) and was designed after the Sydney Opera House. Read more about the specs here.

The Opera is about 2,973 lbs. and is available in three color schemes. It’s being sold in Europe and Australia for approximately $36,152. If you are on a budget maybe these tents will do.

Australian Bungee Jump Goes Wrong

My biggest fears are realized in this terrifying bungee jumping video.

22-year-old Erin Langworth joined friends to go bungee jumping over the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe when the fun turned to horror. The rope snapped, dropping the Australian tourist into the water.

Langworth somehow escaped serious injury, heading home after a week in the hospital.

Bullying or Assault? Australian boy fights back

A new video has emerged featuring an Australian boy named Casey ‘Little Zangief’ Heynes standing up to a school bully.

Heynes, a pupil at Chifley College Dunheved’s Campus in New South Wales, first takes a punch in the face from a smaller kid named Richard Gale, but avoids fighting until it’s obvious the attack is not going to stop.

Heynes grabs his bully, picks him up and delivers a stunning piledriver into the merciless asphalt.

Both kids were suspended.

First off, I applaud this kid for standing up for himself. He will do fine in life, and this was a good learning lesson for that tiny dipwad who started it.

Bullying has become topic du jour across the U.S. lately. When I was a boy in school, fights like this happened on a regular basis. It is a problem. After this video came out, I heard teachers commenting that the bigger boy should not have fought back and that there is never a reason for violence. I think that is bullshit. Teachers who say this are being a bit ridiculous. Richard Gale needed to get stomped, and I am glad he got what was coming.

There is a difference between bullying and assault. Casey Heynes was assaulted here. He defended himself after showing amazing constraint. His parents should go to the police and file charges. The school should expel the antagoniser.

I believe YouTube has pulled this video now. Try watching here on CBS.

He now has a Facebook Fan page that has 80,000+ fans!
