phobia?

After reading this, would you still call my fear of sharks irrational? After years of watching shark documentaries on various nature channels, it is still baffling to me that even after getting bitten, many shark researchers will often continue their work (presumably with new nicknames like, “stumpy,” or out on the water, “bob”).

  1. You’d be surprised at the stories those ship repairmen have. The money is great, for one thing. And the other is the feeling that they can’t be that unlucky to meet a shark a second time. Hence they continue. Also come on, the beauty of the sea… who can leave it too long?

  2. It’s not like this guy was walking along Main Street and got attacked out of no where. He SAW the shark, and then VOLUNTARILY got in the water with it. I doubt in South Africa there are strict regulations regarding shark cage safety…

  3. A few months ago Reuters reported that a a tourist off the Florida Keys on his fist scuba dive was bitten in half by a big ass shark.

  6. Cool. Chumming and spreading a fish oil slick to attract sharks is doing exactly what it should be.

    Did you know that after a Great White shark eats a seal, it doesn’t have to eat again for two months?
