(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Now That's A Nasty Croc!


Ah, I can hear Steve Irwin now. . .
BRUTUS, the giant Aussie three-legged croc whose tour boat antics were flashed around the world this week, is in danger of losing his weekly meal.

Boat tours encouraging giant beasts like Brutus to leap from the water using meat bait are raising the risks of savage attacks on tourists, a reptile expert says.

A photograph of the Northern Territory's newest celebrity crocodile, Brutus a 5.5m three-legged beast who lost a limb in a shark attack, set tongues wagging this week.

NT News photographer Katrina Bridgeford snapped the amazing picture of the croc as it lunged for its favourite snack, buffalo meat.

Former New South Wales croc handler Craig Adams said the Territory's jumping croc cruises were teaching the reptiles to lose their fear of humans.

"We're training them to come up and get their food. The danger is that the crocs become comfortable around boats," he said.


At first I believed the photograph to be Photoshopped. But, after having seen the accompanying video, I know it's not a fake. This is an incredible picture, but Brutus is allegedly not the largest beast in the area. There is said to be an even larger "Saltie" in the region -- two feet longer.

I was taught from an early age, don't bother something that isn't bothering you. He could just as easily take one of the pinhead tourists, especially if they leaned over the rail for a better look. Idiots, the operators and the customers.

As you can see through the past few three or four posts, I am having editing and posting problems in terms of paragraphs, gaps, dead space.

Wish I could make an accurate accounting of the problem but it evidently escapes my meager accounting of Techno Stuff.

I can only hope you, my dearest readers, see the content and are not disturbed by its raw presentation.

On the other hand, how I WISH I had been the one to capture that now-exquisite photograph!

Amazing!

Damn, he is big, but what about the one that got that leg!! A while back I saw a picture of a 26' foot gator killed by Fish and Game in south Alabama that was over a ton--must be a record. I moved out to lake Lincoln in southern Mississippi after my wife passed away and although the lake is relatively small, only some 5 miles of shoreline, we have many gators. I've seem quite a few in the 6' range. Eaten Gator in the past, but I suppose not enough coon-ass in me---don't care for it.

Need that big sum-bitch here in the Trinity River to "re-cycle" all the humans that end up in it.

Dang, TF, wouldn't that be some kind of Aussie Fun??

Gripping a Thompson Contender, or perhaps a .454 Casull? Or maybe even a .458 Winchester?

Oh yeah baby!
