I wish the CG would send these idiots a bill for $25 or 50k and it would stop people from paddling running, swimming across the oceans

I couldn't agree more! In this case twice they were called out to save this idiot's butt bone. After the first time when he declined rescue, I thought Darwin's theory would prove itself.
Can you imagine what it would have been like to be in that bubble in a hurricane? If he survived long enough, his view in the eye would have been remarkable, though.
