    One summer, there was a gator living in the lagoon next to the boardwalk on the way from our condo to the beach at Hilton Head. We walked by it every day and didn't think anything of it. They're everywhere out there, and I probably wasn't nearly as cautious as I could have been.

    I also very vividly remember a spot in the Everglades where alligators AND crocodiles live. There's a boardwalk over their swamp and I recall there being hundreds crawling around. Cree-py.

    OMG. We have this place where we stay at the weekends and the sailboat is just 20 m away from the beach; We used to swim to the boat until one day there was a croc between the beach and the boat. This story just confirms how effing lucky we have been...

    And the bugs down there - some of them are the size of a man's fist!
    The company commanders used to tease some of the recruits by saying that there were stray gators on the base. They were joking, but now, I wonder.

    I spent one night at one of the Disney hotels years ago. There were cockroaches in the room. We searched our suitcases before we left to make sure none of them were coming home with us.

    "No Swimming" is the equivalent of "Stay the Ever Loving Fuck out of the Goddamn Water, AssFace". Period.

    Just the same, Disney just announced it is changing all of those signs.

    As far as a lawsuit, Disney will pay them MILLIONS. Growing up, I knew of a kid that got hit by the Disney train. He ended up fine, I think he may have had minor surgery, but that was it. Rumor was Disney paid them $1 million. And this was back in the 80's. And...their cousin that told me the story could have been lying, but I don't think he was.

    Who really knows? They are pretty secretive about this stuff, and there was even a rumor that Disney had a deal with the Orlando authorities that if someone was grievously injured at Disney that they wouldn't be declared dead until they were officially outside the Disney property - which would be amazing for keeping down negative accident statistics. I find it hard to believe that this is anything more than some rumor.

    TBH I wouldn't read that as no paddling or wading. They should have, at minimum, said stay out of the water.

    And possibly put some fencing there - even that gorilla, who is not known as a predator or even a meat eater, had some kind of border between him and the public.

    The pictures I've seen of where the attack occurred make it look like the beach entrance to a pool, practically.

    DISNEY WORLD
    SCARY GATOR ENCOUNTER
    Weeks Before Deadly Attack


    Turns out Disney World is a haven for gators ... which have become so bold they tried to board a raft that is often filled with unsuspecting guests.

    TMZ obtained this footage ... shot a month ago at Disney World. You see a gator climb aboard the log raft that takes guests to Tom Sawyer Island on the Rivers of America.

    Our Disney World sources say gators are a nagging problem that has not been abated. After the gator mounted the raft park employees set out to catch the female gator ... we don't know the outcome.

    Disney's Rivers of America sits less than 2 miles away from the Seven Seas Lagoon at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort where Lane Graves was snatched and killed.

    As we previously reported ... the resort only had "no swimming" signs, and the boy wasn't even swimming ... he was standing in a foot of water at the time of the attack.
