    Chlorinated pools are for swimming, lakes are for fishing.

    I love swimming and that water looked pretty clean....I have swam and pissed in water countless times that looked 10x worse than that and never had a problem. But, it wasn't African waters I swam in. Go figure

    The moral of the story is to never go swimming there without “protection” o_O

    Some South American indian tribes dont go in the water without a tightly woven Basket like sleeve over their penis. Theyve heard about these little bugger fish.

    Might be an ancestral voodoo curse.

    WhoTF voluntarily goes to Africa?!?
    And to swim in some filthy, parasite and disease filled lake?

    You could sleep on the streets of San Francisco with the bums and pick up some great diseases all without the hassle of leaving the U.S.
    Much more convenient.

    Ummm.... OUCH!

    I’ll just put that near the top of my list to never visit a third world country again.

    Stan Brock packed that Randall #14. Nothing would mess with him! Like Mjolnir, but with an edge.

    It's a very common issue in the tropics.

    "...his dream Africa trip." Sounds like a very odd wet dream. :eek:

    That only goes for your own chlorinated pool, avoid public pools and hot tubs like the ****ing plague.
    A property management company I once worked for sent me to pool and spa school. I will never go in a public pool or spa again, ever.

    I used to make ton of Mr. Perkins. Then I saw Jim get into trouble. Seems the huge constrictor type snake got the local experts scared once it took Jim off his feet. Jim was wrapped, and locals ran out of @3' of water. Marlin went right in and saved Jim. Got a couple of the locals shamed into helping. Right there I quit making fun of him.
    I later heard his contract required him to stay back. As he was star of the show. That he was Jim for most of his life. I feel correcting the notion he was a wimp might make up for comments I made for most of the show.

    Guilty. Twice on "safari", once on a boat trip up the Nile. Things can go sideways pretty quickly even if you're careful. One time (at band base camp) I woke up in the middle of the night in full blown anaphylaxis. I had "flying doctors" insurance so they were radioed. Their response was, "If he's alive in the morning and still having problems call us back." Apparently nobody was crazy enough to try and land in the dark. lol. I have no idea what got me. At least I didn't catch malaria. (or penis worms)

    Using enough chlorine will cure many problems, but a proper bacteria test takes 24-48 hours to perform.
