That was pretty darn cool...

Thanks for taking 45 minutes away from my life, as I went from that cool video to another, and another, and another...sigh.  It's 7:30pm already?   damnit.  Thanks Jolly  ;)

Wouldn't it be nice to have some Boondock Saints kicking around?

Just one - what's the Australian equivalent of a Canada Goose? probably some sort of huge, poisonous, reptilian, flying spider - away from a multiple-fatality blast.

Wedgetail Eagle.  Thankfully, not native to that part of Australia (I think).  Those things are big.

With scaly wings, toxic fangs, and the ability to spin webs capable of snaring kangaroo-sized prey, right?
