Re: Paul Willis's citation of probability of croc attack based upon blood
alcohol level in human prey.
What are we to conclude from this correlation? That crocs detect and are
drawn to alcohol in human prey or that intoxicated humans are more likely to
be careless and inattentive, swimming in croc feeding zones?
Do crocodiles regard alcohol as some kind of marinade?
Actually, this could be tested under controlled conditions, but it would be
somewhat messy and Human Subjects Committees might frown on it...
