You don't see hikers snuggling with pumas or bears. What defect in divers' brains makes them want to get all chummy with vicious carnivores?

I swear to Christ, if they're not hand-feeding sharks or intruding on dolphin orgies, they're poking their hands in every rock crevice looking for some ambush predator to pester.

Think about it from the eel's perspective. This terrifying and loud thing has come down from the up-world, and is handing it food. Best to make a show of worship to the mysterious deity.

Cunning on the part of the eel and, once it has been established the upworlder is clearly weak, you can always take a hand as a show of power if things become uncomfortable.

Nero had a pet eel he kept in a little pool under the dining room of one of his vacation houses. He had it's gills pierced and it wore an extravagant gold eel gill-ring. He kept it for the better part of a decade, and when it died, he held a funeral for it.

The denouement of the funeral was eating it, of course. I think of this story every time I have an eel roll.

Thanks for that, please keep delighting us with your knowledge of Roman trivia.

That's awesome. More fun from the culture that brought us pouring melted gold over a lion's mane so they're shinier in the arena.

Social moray, a joke I stole from a Far Side cartoon.

I caught a foot long eel two weeks ago. Chinese woman came running over and I gave it to her for soup.
