The last thing one expects when navigating the waters of the Florida Keys is to be hit in the face with a Platypus. Being hit by a Spotted Eagle Ray may make more sense but is still sufficiently weird and tragic that I felt the need to post a link to the story.
I'd like to think we have free reign on the outcome of our lives. I'd hate to think some vengeful entity spins a wheel of doom to decide the ultimate fate for each of us and just past flaming fondue accident, bitten by rabid Pomeranian or choking on a corn dog.....is hit in the face by a Spotted Eagle Ray. It has to be one of the stupidest ways to die. I feel terribly for both the woman and the ray.
