Here's the scary part

Check out this dude in the FoxNews story:

He's Alex Bellini, and he looks about as crazy as you'd expect a guy to be who got it into his head to row a boat from Peru to Australia. Here's a dude who clearly doesn't have both oars in the water, if you get my drift.

But here's the scary part of the story, and I quote: "he is not the first person to row solo across the Pacific"

Where are these people? Do they all have that look in the eyes that says, "I've got squirrels juggling knives in my head" so that you know to give them a wise berth? Or do they look perfectly normal right up until they shove off?

Just think: some stranger you meet -- perhaps in an elevator, perhaps at a sports event -- may well be loco enough to have at some point gotten it into his head to cross the Pacific in a rowboat. Which leaves you to wonder what else they decide to try.

Too much sun shine.

He didn't get exposed to all that sunshine until after he got into into his head to row across the Pacific ocean!
