And we're not talking about Wal-Mart; we're talking real piranha fish that attacked some 60 people in Argentina.
Quote:
A medical official, Gustavo Centurion, said the attack which began at mid-morning on Christmas Day was "very aggressive."
Quote:
The region has been hit by a heat wave with temperatures soaring to some 38 degrees Celsius (more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit) prompting thousands to seek relief in the waters of the Parana River, which is packed with carnivorous fish.

Exactly. Even if that wasn't the name, they (locals anyway) would know the danger.

Putging the dar in winning.

The wireless mentioned that they were a close relation to Piranha, not actual Piranha.

That's the fish, not the bathers. It'd be silly otherwise.

Quote:
Director of lifeguards Federico Cornier said Thursday that thousands of bathers were cooling off from 100-degree temperatures in the Parana River in Rosario on Wednesday when bathers suddenly began complaining of bite marks on their hands and feet. He blamed the attack on palometas, “a type of piranha, big, voracious and with sharp teeth that can really bite.”

Look at Salman Rushdie. His last name is RUSH DIE and he writes a book about muzzies.

I've read about this happening before, can't remember where. It was believed to coincide with when they breed. They're defending their eggs.

The reputation of Piranhas is ludicrous, I had three when I was a kid, I used to chase them around the tank with my bare hand. Yes they've got big teeth but the idea that they blindly attack anything that moves is just dumb.
