One of my favorite shows on TV right now is Destination Truth on Syfy. If you don't know what it is, this group travels around the world looking for mythical creatures and ghosts. As you can imagine, they rarely ever find anything, but the host, Josh Gates, is absolutely hilarious. I watch it just for him; he cracks me up. A lot of the times, they travel to remote areas that have real dangers. Forget the mythical creature that might rip their face off, they go to rain forests where panthers and tigers live and to the wilds of Alaska where wolves and bears outnumber people. If you ask me, they should be more afraid of the real creatures, but they don't really seem to mind. So, my random thought of the day is: Do you think the Destination Truth team carries guns? On the one hand, you can argue that they need to so that they can shoot an animal if it attacks, but on the other, what if they have someone with an itchy trigger finger? They are wandering around in the dark, and if someone gets scared, a team member could get shot. I don't know, the argument could go either way.
