Web Exclusive: Shark tale becomes close call for twin brothers

Posted: Updated:

(CBS/CNN) - Would you swim with a shark using only a birdcage for protection? Maybe not. Well, two guys decided to do just that.  27 year old Australian twin brothers Shaun and Dean Harrington were shooting an extreme video to promote their surfing and fishing clothing line.   Shaun put the bird cage over his head and jumped into the water thinking he was a safe distance away from the shark.  Then the shark lunged at Shaun, who actually used the bird cage at one point to fend it off. Dean says he actually thought he was a goner and that it's definitely a case of a little fun taking a crazy turn very quickly.

Business is on fire for the man who has grown the hottest chili pepper in the world.  Ed Currie spent 12 years cross-breeding peppers to get the most intense heat.  It all paid off in November, when Guinness named his Carolina Reaper Pepper the hottest ever, 300 times hotter than a jalapeno.  He uses it to make sauce and jellies for his company in South Carolina.

You know how a little pampering can make us feel special.  Now, a Miami spa has a pedicure that will make you feel like royalty, but it's going to cost you.  They'll cover each of your toes in real Swarovski crystals!  The price tag for the bling is 200 bucks! You better really enjoy it, because it only lasts a few weeks. Get this, the crystals are not reusable.

Your Super Bowl party may cost you more this year if you plan on providing the snacks.
Rising mozzarella prices means you'll spend 5 to 10% more on pizza.  Freezing temperatures in Florida are making avocados more expensive, that's pushed the price of guacamole up 10 percent, but nachos are holding the line.  After a chicken wing shortage last year, prices are down about 5%.
