Shark attack season is upon us....
#1
yep, we're 9 days into spring and Australia has already had one fatal shark attack,
a swimmer in Sydney apparently had one of his legs removed by a shark this morning, he died on the beach awaiting an ambulance...

1. when will people learn,they dont have fins and scales and dont belong in the water!

2. how many more attacks will we have over the next six months, here, in the shark attack capitol of the world!?

I would dearly love to have a non-aligned top-tier mental health professional take a look at the brains of all who died/got seriously chewed up. I would like to fund an equal-amount study of all those whose horrified, vicarious pseudo-thrills keep this kind of topic alive. How many children died in Sao Pulo's favela's? How many died in Jakarta, Indonesia of neglect? What's the homeless child population of Lagos, Nigeria? << During this time period. Yet you persist in this "OMG, those poor folks" cheap thrill. A reminder: Those in Australia voluntarily exposed themselves to danger, despite abundant warning. Can you say the same for my examples? Sheesh.
Am I taking you to the woodshed for being frivolous? Damn Skippy I am...and here I stand.

That's one seriously big bugger! We have the odd shark attack off the coast of SA, but nothing like what happens in OZ.

I'm going to throw my .02 cents in here and say 5. Given that there hasn't been more than 2 fatalities in any given year (with the exception of 4 in 2011...did you guys throw a shrimp on the oceanic barbie that year or something, Crazy Horse?), and the non-fatal attacks seem to have been dropping since 2003 (probably because the laws pertaining to Darwinism have meant that those who are foolish enough to ignore the warnings have been ejected from the (gene) pool), I'm going to low-ball my guess.

It was kind of cool to check out the stats on shark attacks. I have lived inland my entire life, so I had not really thought much about it! https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/fish/sharks/st...statsw.htm

As for your concerns jazzbo, I understand why you are upset about this, but I do think that trying to compare the suffering of children in impoverished areas to the active choices made by adults who really should know better isn't fair. Now, if the sharks were eating impoverished children, I'd agree with you that this topic is inappropriate!

This topic immediately made me wonder what music sharks would listen to while "dining"...

Per Sister MAG2NYC's gentle chiding, I will admit I was late-night OTT. She has however been around sharks in her life: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_Loop << posted to keep others elsewhere in the loop...JazzboCR over and out.
