Brazil Beach Terror


Brazilian beach goers had to be treated for piranha bites last weekend. They are introducing tilapia to the water as an alternate food source to protect humans. Somehow I doubt that is enough to do the job.

OMG, yet another reason not to go to South America, as if drug cartel violence wasn't enough!

@GGNY

Thanks for finding my soapbox. I think I will be needing it soon judging by some of the comments on other posts. :lol:

As to that urethra invading needle fish, OUCH

But the article does say that the one "proven" case is still suspect. Lets face it though, just the thought of something like that is painful. Us guys tend to be VERRRRY protective of the family jewels.
