I totally agree with this morning host in Australia.

Courtesy of Medaite:  

Stefanovic: I am never going back into the water. 
Wilkinson: Me neither. No way. 
Stefanovic: That’s it. That’s the biggest thing I’ve ever seen.
 Wilkinson: Stuff summer. 
Stefanovic: No, let’s go to the local pool… Look at the size of that thing!

Holy shitballs that thing is huge!

I have never been to Australia, but I did live in Hawaii for a year while going to college.

My favorite pastime was snorkeling which I did every chance I could get.

But the thing was that every time I saw a school of fish I heard this in my head "Duuun dun duuun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun BOM BOM dun dun dun dun dun dun doo dedoo doo dedoo dede doo dede doo dededoo."(For those who don't read music.)

And that freaked me out so much that I would start to panic a little and invariably it sent me swimming back toward shore convinced that at any minute I was going to feel one of my legs get ripped right off.

If I had seen a shark like the one in the video, I would never have even washed my hands in the sink again.

    This wonderful lady has some amusing advice about avoiding sharks:

    1. She's hilarious! Her video just made my morning.

    MH370 mystery has been solved. That shark ate the entire plane.

    Well, if you call yourself a shark chaser and you chase sharks, the odds are that you'll catch one.

    In Australia it's traditional to eat shark meat as the "fish" in your "fish and chips". It's called "flake", not shark. It's not very nice.

    Sharks are only one of the myriad things that can kill you in Australian waters...

    ROFL, Gryphen!!!

    I'm glad you never ran into Sarah in Hawaii...

    1. Actually she went to the same school I did, in Hilo, Hawaii, only she arrived two years later.

      I was no longer enrolled there at the time.

    Hahaha... I laugh from the safety of my porch 50 miles from the ocean.

    All the times I went to Hanauma Bay, never once saw a shark.

  8. We've got some sharks off the coast of California now. They say because the water has warmed up and the fish they feed on are here.

    They also say the water is clear and the sharks are avoiding the divers because they know the difference between a diver and a seal and they have no interest in eating the divers.


    I've never been much for ocean swimming anyway. You always end up sticky and sandy. So I'll just enjoy the pool at the gym.

    Not since I first saw "Jaws' have I "felt safe enough to go in the water. But then there's far worse things in Jersey Shore Water than sharks, there's sludge, medical waste and "no swim" zones when that tar junk makes it to shallow water.
    I love the Aussie's Accents, that's one country that's still on my bucket list., but I won't go in the ocean without my surefire shark repellent. A photo of Sarah in Hawaii or Bristol anywhere.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
