• Seventeen-year-old Kendrick Perkins of St. Petersburg, Florida is thanking his lucky stars – as well as his baggy pants – for sparing him certain harm when an alligator attacked him. As Perkins evaded the beast, which he estimates was between seven and eight feet long, the gator lunged at Perkins, tearing at the material of his baggy pants. The logic employed by Perkins and his mother was that had he been wearing regular, non-baggy pants, the alligator would have locked on to his leg, but that logic is completely erroneous. Baggy pants don’t make your legs smaller or change where Perkins’ leg was as he ran away – had Perkins been wearing regular pants, the gator would have likely just bitten at air. Thinking like a fool, I guess you could say. [msnbc]
