Yea, and he had powers over their very stingers...

This past weekend I went to the Kids Safety Fun Fair! Who knew fun and safe could ever be used in the same sentence?

Well things were not as safe as you might think. I mean in my book if you let small children hold scorpions that would not be a “safe” activity. Not just little tiny scorpions, but huge ones. Scorpions that would make the most manly of men shutter in fear!

I, delighting in unsafe activities, decided to hold one of these monstrous scorpions. It did not pinch me nor sting me but we became great friends! I dare say we bonded.

I have always believed that when Steve Erwin died a little piece of him lives on in all of us. This could not be evident in the pictures I was just looking at. Have you noticed that since he has been dead that animals have no repect for humans. I don't know how accurate this is but I think that animal attacks have increased by 500% since the day he died. Be aware of you surroundings and animals will never get you!

I could be wrong, but I think the smaller the scorpian, the more deadly the sting. Or something like that. I tend to make up facts.

However, my niece was stung one morning by a scorpian at my parents house in vegas. When we responded to the horrible cries coming from the the other room and asked her what was wrong, she pointed at the little guy and cried "that shrimp bit me!".

She could have used a Safety Fun Fair to teach her the difference between shrimp and scorpian.

...And then Danny was struck in the chest with a mighty harpoon. Surprised at the sudden shock of pain that reverberated throughout his body, the last words he heard were "Get over here!" He was jerked towards the supernaturally evil ninja, mockingly dressed in a yellow Lin Kuei uniform. Danny struggled to pull the harpoon out of his chest, but abruptly froze as the mysterious assailant in front of him pulled off his mask to reveal a leering skull. Flames danced in his hollow eyes, and before Danny could retaliate, his body was consumed by the hellish fire that violently burst forth from the ninja's mouth.
With one less obstacle in the path of his vengeance-quest against Sub-Zero, the undead ninja known only as Scorpion trudged past the pile of charred bones that were once Danny Sorensen.
