Having been on safari in Kenya...

*cough*braggingagain*cough*

:rofl:

I think of it as a swimmer...
...the Water buffalo turn up in force and attempt to hog the seemingly empty lane but not actively use it...the loud flyers (Lions) get all chest-poundy and "Do you know who I am?" about it.
They then pick a fight with a buffalo and crash into the Breaststroker's territory (crocs) who were happily practicisng the underwater part of their stroke. The breaststroker's try to encourage the Buffalo to swim underwater with them, as fly is hard on the shoulders, but being more unique than flyers they lose out in the tug of war due to numbers...
Then the Leader of the buffalo herd spots what the flyers are detaining one of the herd and leads the stampede; throssiing the loudest flyer into the air like a rag and driving off the others...

I swear this is just like my local Y...

Nice Analysis Rich LOL! Are we missing a posting or two here? I don't see Leslie's posting about being on safari in Kenya? ....and why does her comment asking you to stuff yourself precede your first posting on this thread?? My brain hurts now LOL!

With buffalo steaks?

I remember when I used to live in Cairo, Egypt, a lot of American tourists would ask the Maitre D's at the major hotels (Hilton, Sheraton, etc....) for a "Crocodile breast-meat" sandwich, because it had been recommended (by friends and previous tourists) to them as one of the local gourmet must-try/taste meals. Needless to say, there's no such thing.

I dare say that the crocodiles occasionally consume such sandwiches from careless tourists; probably where the confusion comes from.

Whew, that was intense. I normally can't watch any "kill" situation but knowing that baby was going to make it, I watched. Great video!

........and almost two months later (just a few days ago), CNN presents it as "News".

That's not too surprising. We've been in the midst of unbelievable market volatility the past couple weeks (I work for a trading firm, so we tend to pay fairly close attention to that sort of stuff ;)). I've seen nothing about this in my CNN email updates. But by God, they let me know the other day that Jenna Bush got engaged. Damn, I wonder if that was the cause of all the market fluctuations?
