Allow me to introduce you to Lee.
Lee is an Australian idiot.
He fully deserves this pisstake media report for his actions which involved jumping into a river, well known for it's crocodiles, all to impress a girl who didn't really look that impressed.
Go ahead and watch the video (there's some language in it that's a little bit fruity) and judge for yourself.
Lee was damn lucky it was only his arm that got munched. It could have been ripped off, he could have been pulled under and I don't even want to estimate how much money he cost the taxpayers of Australia because he let a carton of goon and what was in his underpants do his thinking.
BUT....it does beggar the question... just how far would you go for love? Just how far should our heroes in our books go? Have *you* done something outrageously risky for love or know anyone who has? Have you read a hero who did something hold-your-breath stupid to get the girl?
PS The moral of the story is, dont be like Lee. No girl is worth being shoved under a log by a prehistoric beast.
