If you're swimming in the water between Sweden and Denmark with your testicles exposed, then you certainly have big ones: that's some crazy cold water.

So how does the Pacu get to you through a wetsuit? Does it think you're a seal? Does it crave seal-nuts?

Well.... if any sailor lost their life as a result of these ball eating fish, I'd sure feel bad for withholding this information. Sure glad I know now that they are out there just looking for a meatball to eat.

My wife keeps mine in a jar on the nightstand. No worries here!

Does she let you borrow them if you want to go skydiving or motocross racing or something? Loop attempts?
