We’re watching some sort of Amazing Animal Attacks on Animal Planet. I can’t even really WATCH it. Currently they’re showing where some Thai kid (OK, he was 21) whose arm was snapped into a crocodile’s mouth. The crocodile was rolling with this dude’s arm in his mouth. I was certain that his arm was going to be ripped off. UGH. Nope, but it took 3 years and 6 surgeries to fix his arm. OUCH!
You’d think given that we’re all covering our eyes and leaning away from the TV that we would turn it off. Nope. I think we must be gluttons for punishment. After all, now we need to watch the bull jump out of the bull-fighting arena and gore the audience. Yummy.
You know… I find it interesting that we just keep the camera going regardless of the tragedy. Is that to warn or to entertain?
