Borneo? You kidding me? Would it have killed them to set it in the Amazon?

I seem to recall the trailers claiming they moved at 50ft/sec. That would be...hmmm...300ft/6 sec, 900ft/18 sec, about 20 sec/kilometer. 3 kilo/min = 180 kilometer/hour or what...about 100 miles/hour?

Man I am SO looking forward to this movie!

Incidentally, anyone interested in anacondas should check out Jesus Rivas's web site (google it yourself...I'm too lazy). He has done a lot of field research in the Amazon, and even has an article on predatory attacks on humans. Good reading.
