Badass of the Week.

-- An Eric Pianka Colleague Sounds Off --

Hey Ben,

Just reading through your website and then, HOLY SHIT, there was my old neighbor from the lab, Eric Pianka. Just thought that there are a couple of tidbits that you could add to that crazy old bastard's page.

1) He was gored really severely, I think maybe by Lucifer the Bison, a couple of years ago (which, of course, could not kill him), and

2) I think, but am not entirely sure, that at one point he was declared dead, or was about to be declared dead, after going "missing" in the Australian outback for altogether too long (this was way back in the day). I haven't been able to source the second, but have spent plenty of time standing in Eric's doorway listening to his baddassery.
