In this video, Shaun Harrington of Australia, decided to go swimming with the sharks in nothing BUT a bird cage.

I’ll be alright, eh?’ Shaun said to his friend as he helped Shaun into the cage. 'Yeah mate, no worries, they don’t have real big teeth,' his friend assured him."

However, just after jumping in the water, a tiger shark, over six-feet long, got a little too close, forcing Shaun to defend himself with said flimsy bird cage. "It was heavy -- it scared the [bleep] out of me and I thought I was a goner," he said, adding it was one of the dumbest things he had ever done.
