|12:59 pm - Perhaps "Helicopter" would be better? "Mudflats"? "Gravity"?|
Dear BBC News Editor:
You appear to have misspelled "Idiocy" as "Crocodile" in this headline:
Crocodile causes helicopter crash
A helicopter pilot in Australia became so excited when he spotted a crocodile that he flew in for a closer look - and crashed into mudflats....
I understand that causality is tricky stuff, but really.
"I'm skeptical of any form of transportation in which the general public has access to the brakes. I would hate to find out that I ended up upside down in a ditch because Gus thought he saw a woodchuck."
- Dennis Miller (back when he was a comedian) on trains, paraphrased from memory
Crocodiles have hypnotic eyes. They stare and stare and stare and you just can't help diving straight for their mouths. It's a fact!

ALL HAIL THE HYPNO
My favorite part of this is that it happened in Darwin.
Survival of the fittest, indeed.
Please to insert appropriate disclaimer should the passenger not pull through with minor and non-lasting damage.
Do you know, I hadn't even noticed. Brilliant.
And while I do hope the passenger is okay, I'm pretty sure that the ability to choose non-idiot helicopter pilots is a survival trait.
The intriguing coincidence of "Darwin" aside, that's much more the sort of thing I'd expect to happen in Queensland. :)
