    Australian man sits on dead whale as killer sharks are feeding. Lives to tell tale

    An Australian man thought it would be a good idea to boat, then swim, out to a whale carcass, surrounded by ferocious, feeding sharks. Including a great white and several tiger sharks. He perched on top of it for some time, as coastguards circled, between Fremantle and Rottnest Island, Perth on Saturday afternoon. Somehow, he is still alive.

    Bit speechless about this really. Maybe he's aiming for a Darwin award?

    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    Well, he's lucky that carcass held out and he didn't end up sinking into the guts of it, as it were.
