Things to take away from this video: the ocean is just as scary as you think it is, lobsters are unexpectedly fast and look scarier when they're alive, and the guy who made this is crazy.

Look, we've already gone over just how terrifying the ocean is. Simply put, it's not a place that humans should go. We don't have gills for a reason. But even with all that information accounted for, it's hard not to be impressed by this guy.

Here in New England, our lobstermen use cages to catch crustaceans. That's some wimpy stuff compared to this diver. He goes right in, throws a little jab fake or two, and nabs the suckers with his bare hands.

The craziest part is that he's not even a little timid about shoving his hands into dark crevasses. It's hard to say whether that's brave or stupid (maybe both?), but if there's one thing for certain, it's that he and his family are eating well.
