Who knew?

In case you were wondering, it is inadvisable to get drunk when you are in a crocodile-infested area:
Almost one in three people attacked by crocodiles were drunk at the time, Australia's most comprehensive review of croc attacks reveals.
The figures show why it's not a good idea to drink too much if you're in or near water in northern Australia, says zoologist Dr Adam Britton of Wildlife Management International, who has co-authored research showing a 30-fold increase in crocodile attacks over the past three decades.
I'm certainly not a risk taker so just reading about these things gives me goose bumps.
