OK so he was a little better than those guys on jackass.
But maybe not........they never endangered infants.
He held his son while he fed a Croc, brazen? Maybe. But he was a pro at his job. Maybe you refuse to see that, you cannot accept that the man was a good man, because he doid one thing you felt was "aweful".
Now I see why you hold the view you do of the world... very sad, and dim.
Einstein's "Theory of Relativity" is still being challenged to this day, but by consensus Global Warming is a fact... that's REAL science at work, why didn't Albert just go that route?
I thought he did what he did because he adept at such things. As a fan of the combat sports, I can tell you this guy had reflexes that were out of this world. He was as fast as lightning.
A tragedy, yes, it was in my mind, but the real tragedy as that he chose to have a family before he gave up the risky ventures. That is not the type of job a family man should have.
That child was no doubt safer in the arms of an expert on the type of situation they were in than most children who ride in cars driven by their less-than-expert parents.

Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
[John F. Kennedy]
The principal value of debate lies in the development of logical thought processes, and the ability to articulate your positions publicly.
[Senator Dick Clark of Iowa]
The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they've found it.
And your opinion means anything why? He was a father, a husband, and a wildlife conservationist. Beyond that he had the balls of an elephant. How well would you fare wrestling a damn crocodile? So show him some respect. Just because he was a little annoying and over the top doesn't make him an idiot not does he deserve ur scorn.
And that thing with the baby was ridiculous. He is an expert and when you see how he was holding the baby, there is no way the croc can or would lunge that far and fast, especially when he was already FEEDING IT. He was totally in control.
a bit of a euology here.. kind of sad reading their statements.
