    Singray attacks are rare as is, but this is crazy.
     
  4. Man, what's up with these stingrays?

    Imagine you're just standing in your boat hangin' out and one jumps outta the water and hits you in the chest???

    :eek:

    Having witnessed one kid getting stuck (and helping him get to the hospital), in the leg, I can't imagine what pain that dude felt catching it in the chest like that!!!

    It's been a topic here in the shop, apparantly a few years ago, Keith's brother got tagged in the hand and it really messed him up for a while.

  6. Typically, you really have to do something to get them scared to be stung, i.e. step on one (the kid that I was with did just that). This latest one is definitely a freak occurance.

    I tell you what's causing it. All of these damn violent video games!!!! Back in my day, stingrays were nice people! Hell, we'd invite 'em over to have Sunday supper with us! I even dated the oldest daughter of a stingray. Nice gal she was!

    Secret government trained stingrays have escaped the holding pen and have made their way into the wild.




    And to boot they are pissed off.

    It's gets freakier - Apparently this thing ALSO caught the guy in the heart ala Steve Irwin. The difference is that they left the barb in and were able to remove it by slowly and carefully pushing it through the heart! Whereas Steve Irwin actually pulled it out himself, probably causing massive damage. Damn, my kids are still broken up about that a month later.

    That is freaky. But I think if I was Steve I probably would've attempted to pull it out too in the shock.

    I feel a movie coming up!

    The attack of killer stingrays... the sequel to the "attack of the killer tomatoes".


    I wonder if enough time has passed for Steve Irwin bad, horable, going to hell if you say it but yet funny jokes?
     
  18. And all these years...........I never realized how often I cheated death by snorkeling right over the top of them!! :eek: :rollno:
     
  19. I have come ariived upon a theory. Music Man is attempting to make us all play their basses by ussing stingrays to destroy everyone that dosn't play a stingray bass. My logic behind this is that, as far as I know, neither of the people that got stabbed in the heart played a stingray bass. For the love of god, go buy a stingray before you die!
