Default Incredible story.

Got this in an Email:



In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University.

On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully.

He got down on one knee, inspected the elephant's foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.


Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.


Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.


Probably wasn't the same elephant.

This is for all of my friends who send me those heart-warming ******** stories.

And, if you don't forward this to at least 25 people in the next 3 minutes your wheelbarrow will be plagued by inconvienient punctures and your dog will get worms. You have been warned!

PS how's your manifold coming along?

G'day John.

I've been pushing my wheelbarrow with a flat tyre for ~5 years already. Never bothered to fix it. Good exercise.

Have not had a chance to even consider starting the Rover manifold yet. Only going to push the rolling chassis from under the tarp into the freshly dried concrete floor of my new shed this afternoon when the rain clears.

Cheers,
Glen

That was really funny. I as well was waiting for the warm and fuzzy ending, waiting for that tear to form in my eye.

But no. The guy gets whacked.

As for the Rover. I looked at the photos. That's a lot of work, dammit!

haha, I like that it was not the typical fuzzy feeling story or the type that plague you with guilt for being... healthy or normal or whatever, lol
