Seeing this recent article making the rounds reminds me of the only piece of useful advice I've ever gleaned at a wedding reception. An old college friend whose grad school roomate was from Burundi said that his Burundian roommate claimed if you are ever being pursued in the water by a hippo, swim in right angles to the hippo -- they're very fast under water when heading straight, but the length of their body makes turning difficult.


He also told me how to evade big cats, but I can't recall the technique.
