When I'm trying to impress someone or belong in a group, I become this overly chatty, overly excited, overly much of a d**kwad. It gets really annoying after a while.
See the thing is now, I'm much better at realizing when it happens. I feel the need to constantly try and make jokes and make people feel at ease and accept me, but for most, it comes off as too much. So I do my best to curb stomp that behavior before it gets out of hand.
And although I hate that behavior, I totally get it when other people do crazy things to secure the affections of others.
While walking along the Johnstone River in Innisfail (perfectly named), which is a crocodile habitat, De Paauw remarked that only backpackers get attacked by crocodiles, and that Australians are immune to the reptilian death machines.
If you guessed that a crocodile almost immediately bit De Paauw's arm and tried ripping it off, then you were right.
De Paauw suffered serious injuries and nearly lost his arm. He was rushed to a local hospital where his injuries are currently being treated.
Can't argue with that logic.
"Being attacked by animals doesn’t really do it for me," the backpacker said in an interview with Nova Radio.
Yes, our man got attacked by a crocodile and he couldn't even get the girl's number.
Flowers and chocolates don't cut it any more. If you have a crush on me, get your arm half bitten off by a crocodile or it's no dice.— Jo Thornely (@jothornely) March 20, 2017
Now that would've been a story.
Maybe next time, just try to have a meaningful conversation with someone, dude?
