Do you recall that awful 1996 movie 'Anaconda' starring a pre J-Lo Jennifer Lopez and a post career Ice Cube? Well, at least one documentary maker probably does and looks to finally answer the question that we all haven't been wondering: What would it feel like to be eaten by a giant Anaconda? And he's making it into a documentary.

According to this article and a brief post on the Discovery Channel website, documentarian Paul Rosolie and Discovery Channel will next month launch a 60 minute documentary called 'Eaten Alive' which will detail Rosolies creation of a 'custom-made snake-proof suit' before being devoured whole and presumably regurgitated.

A somewhat curious addition to the Discover Channel line-up to be sure. I guess the old adage "Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should" applies here.
