If you feed common sense, I don't think that's wrong.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

yes but we are talking to someone who took a Paraná out of it's tank to bite him. Common sense? That might be a pipe dream. lol

I'm pretty sure that most of us here have already seen the National Graphic, Animal Planet, and all the other numerous shows that have filmed these fish during feeding. We really didn't need the lesson, but hey, thanks for trying.
How about the next time you think of removing your fish from the tank for the purposes of your amusement I have an idea! Try the environment in reverse, just so you can get a feel for what the fish is going through. Dunk your head in your tank and keep it there as long as it you took to film this video, LOL. It's not often I find the reason for using this funny little hammer dude, so thanks for providing me with one!!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I'd love to know who you bet against? What dummy thought that if you took a piranha and mashed his face into your arm that it wouldn't bite you?

I'll bet that if I stuck my head in a pit bulls mouth that I'd get my face chewed off? Any takers??

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
