    Only a 1.5 metre white pointer?

    Pfffffft.

    I remember as a kid (maybe 10 years old) out fishing in Spencer Gulf with my Da and his mate.
    I'd been helping gut the Tommy Ruffs and wanted to wash my hands, so I leant over the side and started to wash off all the scales, blood and guts in the beautifully cold clean clear salt water.

    Almost immediately I felt a huge tug to my hair (when I had some!) as Da hauled me in.

    "Don't do that Son" he said...."Munchies'll have you".

    We both looked down into the water to where my oil slick was going and saw a juvenile white pointer just sniffing around about three feet below the surface. It was only about one or two metres long, but big enough to munch both my hands. We both looked at one another and I still remember the smile and the wink he gave me.

    I always used a bucket on board after that!

    PS: He grabbed my hair because I wasn't wearing a shirt at the time, only shorts and Dunlop Volleys.

    Thats one scary beast. Thanks for the link too. The boxing match was just unreal. I wonder who would have won if the guy didn't turn away.

    They have the cold, dead eyes of a serial-killer.

    This lady said she was up for a fight with him. After wrestling sharks her agent is looking for other opportunities.

    Just went to work on my bike in the garage and as I pulled the clutch in I felt something like a feather on my hand.

    I looked down, squealed like a girl and nearly dropped the bike in my frantic efforts to flick the "feather" away.

    I think a bit of poo happened.

    I got that damned intruder with the bug spray though.

    Don't be a scaredy cat, it's dead now. You can come any time.

    Oh, hang on, cancel the last order Andre!

    Returning to Australia is looking less and less appealing.... Golf there already cost me a fortune, being too scared to go and stamp around int the rough to look for all the wayward shots

    A 160 Pound Black Bear strolled through my back yard one night and was found asleep in a tree beside the high school ball field a half mile away the next morning.

    I was under the impression black bears aren't as bad as brown, as long as the cubs aren't around. Did they try and chase it off or tranq it on site?

    Tribal tattoos Eh? Won't someone think of the animals have they no respect? Lol while that particular tattoo style might be dying off the old dudebros can't cover them up, a leather type visor I have never heard of though.
