Default Man to be 'eaten alive' by anaconda!

Okay I gotta admit, this peaked my interest, but then again so did the Megalodon "The Monster Shark Lives' special.

Who's gonna tune in to watch this?

Wildlife filmmaker Paul Rosolie will allegedly “enter the belly of an anaconda in a custom-built snake-proof suit” during the show “Eaten Alive” on the Discovery Channel. The program is scheduled to air Dec. 7 as part of the channel’s MegaWeek.

I love how the idiots at PETA are concerned about the snakes energy level!?!?

I'm trying to figure out how a person can survive getting squeezed by a snake large enough to eat him.

IMHO the guy is a total DB/publicity whore. I generally can't stand 99% of what PETA does or the wackos associated with them but this is one time I tend to agree with them. Just leave the damn snake alone.

I saw this on the news last night. Apparently, the guy is going to be wearing a suit that won't allow him to be crushed. The snake is then supposed to eat him (which it won't because he's not dead), and then he is supposed to be pulled out the mouth with an attached cable.

I won't be watching this crap!...............................Anyone remember Geraldo and Al Capone's "vault"?

I don't know what this fool is trying to discover that a normal person couldn't with a shotgun and a knife?

I am pretty sure an Anaconda doesn't go to eat you until the snake stops feeling a heartbeat. Yup, this should make for some interesting TV.

Yes! I remember.
I'll tell you what was actually much better than that blow-out. Micky Dolenz did a spoof of Geraldo & Capone's vault on MTV while hosting a special MTV/MONKEES day back around 1986 or so...Dolenz's spoof was actually pretty amusing & fun. Geraldo's actual special was a huge build-up to an great big ZERO!

If the snake dies, they should do the world a favor and kill that guy too.

What was wrong with just sending a dummy with a camera strapped to it?

A snake won't think it is food and eat it.

And a guy in a snake proof condom is considered food?
