Mr. Rabbit wanted to cross the river.  But, of course, rabbits
do not swim.

So, Mr. Rabbit asked Mr. Frog if he would take him across the river.

“I would be happy to,” said Mr. Frog, “but you are too heavy.
I would sink and we both would drown.”

So, Mr. Rabbit asked Mr. Fish to take him across the river.

Mr. Fish said, “I’m a fish.  I swim under water.  If I were
to take you across the river, you would drown.”

About that time, Mr. Alligator swam up.  “I’ll suppose I could
take you across the river.  I can swim on the top of the water, and
I’m large enough to carry us both across.”

“Yeah, but you’re an alligator,” replied Mr. Rabbit.  “You’ll
eat me.”

“Oh, no!” exclaimed Mr. Alligator. “I won’t eat you.  I’ve already
had lunch today, and besides that I don’t particularly care for rabbit.”

“Well.  Alright,” decided Mr. Rabbit.

So, Mr. Rabbit hopped on Mr. Alligator’s back.  He decided to stay
close to his tail, and away from him mouth - just in case.

But, as they began to get farther and father out into the river, Mr.
Alligator keep dropping his tail deeper and deeper.

Eventually, Mr. Rabbit found himself sitting right over Mr. Alligator’s
nose about half way across the river.

“Why do you keep going deeper?” asked Mr. Rabbit.

“So I could get you near my mouth where it would be easier to eat you,”
replied the sly alligator.

“But, I thought you said you weren’t going to eat me; that you had
already eaten; and you didn’t like rabbit,” questioned the excited rabbit.

“Yes,” said Mr. Alligator in his eerie sounding voice, “But, you knew
what I was before you ever climbed on.”

I think it's an Aesop Fable or something.

I know, but people miss the fundamental flaw in the story. They try to shoehorn it into some lesson about the nature of people, but such conversations don't happen, and ultimately people are not like animals that operate purely on instinct. A better story would indicate that people are largely influenced by their environment, and that "human nature" is not as important as human behavior.

You forgot the part just before the alligator tried to eat the rabbit.... The little white rabbit with the white fluffy tail started thumping his hind back legs in a panic beating the shit out of the alligator and they both ended up dieing.

Lesson learnt: if your going to get taken down make sure you take the asshole with you.

Most likely inspired by: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Scorpion_and_the_Frog

Origin unknown although it is associated with both Aesop and the Panchatantra.

Thank you!
You are right on where it comes from. It's the scorpion and the frog. I hear Alex Jones tell it sometimes.
You taught me something new which I appreciate and that does not happen very often.  I learn things but not stuff I really appreciate a lot. Panchatantra has the root word Tantra, which I am familiar with and the Indian texts which relate many tales. I had not heard of this before. Had no idea it could be related to Aesop either. Awesome info.  Smiley

If you really think about it then it makes sense that it is not in 'Tom Williams' interest to screw so many people on such a large scale considering much of the demographic his services targeted. I am surprised more people have not resurrected the RFC: BTC Assassination Market thread. Since MyBitCoin functioned like a large bitcoin laundry and there are a lot of nefarious figures using BitCoin including, it is rumored, the CIA and Russian Mafia therefore it makes sense that 'Mr. Williams' has an incentive based on self-preservation to act in an upstanding and honorable way.
