    It is truly amazing that he survived. He had quite a presence of mind to get himself to someone for help.

    Tonight on "Survivor: All Stars: Shark Bite" 8pm EST Richard Hatch was out fishing. He found a shark under a large rock, tried to spear it in the belly. Ended up letting go of the tail. He got bit in the arm, no worse for ware. Tribe had a nice meal.

    I''m suprised this took so long to appear here.

    Just a measure of how tough us Aussies are.

    We all like to wear fake sharkfin hats and swim around near the shore trying to scare our friends, right? So this guy missed a great opportunity to duck under water, with the shark attached to him sticking out above him, and give his mates a good scare. What a waste of a good opportunity! :)

    My girlfriends reaction after I sent her this new article:

    "Want to go night surfing with me?".

    We Aussies definitely are a crazy bunch.
