Well, I for one, would have been *much* more concerned with his anecdote about driving, in case anyone else felt that way :) lol.

Might be a Bogota suburban myth but I did recall hearing somewhere that
horses are very vulnerable to electric shock so I didnt flat out reject that
.The tree thing is way out there . He did seem to believe it and insisted
that if you saw nuts falling from a tree there was a big eel there. That was
as nothing compared to his driving all night thru the Andes mountains with
no lights . He said "if I see a car I turn on my lights so they know Im here
".I seem to remember something about big electric eels causing their own
blindness by their discharges .
