Idiot of the Day

You want me to swim with what???

DARWIN, Australia (CNN) -- If you're hoping to make record time doing laps in the pool, perhaps you should consider employing a training technique that one swim instructor in Australia's Northern Territory claims yields record-breaking results: a crocodile.



Swimming coach Mark Davies says his young swimmers are beating the clock, now that they're being chased by a hungry "croc."



Davies says he lets his swimmers dive into the pool first. Then, he tosses in the crocodile.


One young girl described the experience as "absolutely terrifying."


Davies says he checks the croc's swimming speed first, and makes sure the swimmer has enough of a head start that the crocodile can't really catch up.


What could possibly go wrong?

Oh.My.Gosh. Glad that instructor is in Australia. No way am I sending my child to him for swimming lessons. Incidentally my nephew is currently serving his mission in the northern Territory. I should ask him to find this instructor and his croc.
