Back to Back

For the second day in a row, we found a story on the newswire which clearly demostrates the idiocy of Australians:
CANBERRA, Australia - A man rescued his colleague from the jaws of a crocodile in northern Australia but accidentally shot the unlucky co-worker in the process, police said Wednesday.
The two farmhands were collecting wild crocodile eggs on a riverbank Tuesday in Northern Territory when a crocodile snatched one of them, Jason Green, by the arm, the Northern Territory Police said in a statement.
"The male colleague shot at the crocodile, causing it to let go of the victim's arm, but a further shot hit the victim in the upper right arm," the statement said.
The two men had been collecting eggs to boost the crocodile population at their farm in the northern city of Darwin. Their employer sent a helicopter that flew Green to a Darwin hospital for surgery.
Police Commander Bob Harrison said Green's injuries were not life-threatening.
"He's going to be very sick and sorry and have a very good story to tell," Harrison told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio.
Police could provide no information about the crocodile's condition.
What a huge surprise! An Australian acccidentally shooting someone? That never happens!
Hey Australians, ever tried actually learning about the basic principles of firearms safety before purchasing guns? Because it sure as shit doesn't sound like it to us. This is two days in a row now that you have shot one of your colleagues. What is going on here? Do they just close their eyes, spin around a few times, and then randomly start pulling the trigger? Is there any thought involved at all?
And then lets look at what they were doing when they got attacked by that crocodile: Stealing crocodile eggs! Now, we here at HPO are definitely not crocodile experts, but we think it's pretty safe to assume that if there's one thing that would piss off a crocodile, it would be stealing its eggs. So, following this line of thinking, shouldn't these Australian morons have been prepared for an angry crocodile to come roaring out of the water as they were raping its nest?
In the meantime, Australia continues its war against natural selection...
