Saw this at a local block party a couple of years ago. Sadly didn't get a picture of the 4-year old girl riding it.

I wouldn't worry much. Looks like the high at Mirror Lake in Alaska is in the mid 60's with a nightly low in the mid 40's. Well below what a caiman is going need. So at best it will be moving very slowly and probably just die after a few nights in the wild.

FTFA: "The owner says, 'She doesn't bite, I've trained her not to bite, she sleeps with me,' " Agron said. "'If I get too far from her, she just snuggles closer, it's a real pain in the neck sometimes."

Two words:  mental.  illness.

So the helicopter-mom freaks out after initially letting her kids pet the reptile and is now calling as many people as she can until she finds someone who is willing to listen to her.Fist she called the Department of Fish and Game.When they told her to fark off she called the Division of Parks & Outdoor Recreation.They wanted nothing to do with her so they sent her to the City Parks Department.When they don't return her call who will she bother next, the U.S. Interior Department?How many more bureaucratic agencies and parks department are there left for her to annoy?  If this guy bothers you don't let your kids near him.

This just in, sometimes people regret their decisions and realize there is a legitimate safety hazard.

"The owner says, 'She doesn't bite, I've trained her not to bite, she sleeps with me,' " Agron said. "'If I get too far from her, she just snuggles closer, it's a real pain in the neck sometimes.' He was very emphatic."

Cause sometimes you just want them to leave.

/The pink toenails don't help him here.

Why did the dumbass mom stand and stare as her kids edged ever closer to the animal? Why not take them away from it, despite their protests, if she really felt that having it there was that unsafe?

By the time TFA got to the part about the thing watching a toddler's toes, I was hoping for bloodshed. Something, anything, to justify the mom being so whiny.

Pink Toenails? Thats just tacky.

As an alligator owner, I am appalled. I would never take Bitey to the beach where he could be eaten by a shark
 
2013-06-20 12:22:31 PM
And no one was hurt?  No digits or limbs lost?

WTF?   Why was this approved?

Some admin must have a fetish.

That sounds like a great way to make a perfectly good day at the beach a perfectly awesome day at the beach.

I left Anchorage almost a year ago, but I'm pleased to report no need to check adn.com. Fark gives me all the coverage I need.

Not old school enough given that your screenshot is taken from the newer version of the zone that was added with Prophecy of Ro in the mid 2000s rather than the old one that shipped with the game in 1999.

It is pitch black.  You are likely to be eaten by an alligator.

It saddens me that this was my initial thought as well.

/Dammit, what happened to MMO's that are actually difficult.
