Might not be a bad idea to carry a .45 in your dry bag to send a "message" to Jaws.
A love sick shark that thought the kayak was another shark?
Understatement of the year award ?
45/70. A shark doesn't have any brain, so you shoot for the gills. We'd only have to exterminate three or four species of sharks and there'd never be another attack on a human. There'd still be 297 species of the fricking things for "scientists" who don't give a sh** about their fellow man to study.
Thats so true. Considering the fact that the kayak probably is the length of the shark.
Lucky the shark didn't mistake the kayak for its mate and become incensed and jealous of the hapless human on her back.
"Just kidding, dude."
Ain't Photoshop great!
Using that logic, how many species of dogs should we eliminate?
That particular photo is real.
"We're going to need a bigger kayak!"
This man is really a profound thinker, isn't he?
Sharks don't have mates. Sharks just eat. It was trying do decide if the kayak was edible or not. No one has ever seen a shark mate, I don't think. It happens very deep underwater. They are very mysterious. Did you notice the dude in the snorkelers boat call it a very large "animal?" I've noticed them calling them "animals" lately, I suppose to try to get us thinking of them as just another animal with "rights" instead of as a killing machine.
That's a porpoise
Seen that before. Love that photo.
My wife and I lived in Honolulu for a year in the early 1990s. One day we're at Kailua Beach park, swimming around, the little shark-food turtles bobbing. We went home, and read in the afternoon that they'd caught a 16 foot tiger (stupidest, hungriest, least people skittish) off that beach.
After that, each time I'd go into the water I'd lose my ability to breathe.
That monster in the pic looks about, oh, 12. Imagine a THIRD bigger than that.
I don't know. Neurosis? Or is it acceptable that I don't want to be consumed by a prehistoric animal?
