    Default Hey Florida, stop feeding tourists to the sharks!

    Damn!
    Another shark attack. This time it was an Austrian.
    First it was a little girl from Louisianna and then a boy from Tennessee.

    You keep this shit up we just might have to start marketing dicount Florida vacations to members of Al Qaida.

    I give an open invitation to all fellow linkers to come swim with me. I live in S. Florida and have yet to see nor hear of any attacks close my location. Now, I'm a Firefighter/Medic/Rescue Diver....and I have never come across any agressive sharks. Yes, I have seen plenty around, but most are not looking for human food. Unfortunetley, these beasts do tend to bite us from timeto time.
    What would you do?

    What is your solution?

    Shoot im!
    $20,000.00 question...............
    If you and a buddy were surfing and the shark attacts him.....

    Scream like a little girl
    Swim towards the shark as fast as you can to ram him.
    Yell as loud as you can under water to "Stop Or Else"

    You have a better chance of being killed in a car accident on the way to the store than being killed by a shark, even if you swam in the ocean everyday.

    And thats about what its worth.

    Which begs the question: "How often does Eddymon shop, compared to his swimming habits?"

    Although the military might want to consider his 'vacation' idea. We could do a sting operation for the terrorist. Drop pamphlets get them to come for a free vacation and make sure we get them to swim in an area we have 'unknowingly' attracted a few bull sharks. Thay are the only know sharks that will repeat attack. The little darlings. They will come back and back and back and bite and bite and bite until they just get tired of it. They are the meanest and will attack for no reason(not looking for food). They are the only sharks that are known to be territorial and will attack in as little as 3 ft of water.

    We could also tell them that the safest time to swim is sunrise and sunset. That is really the worst time to swim. That's when sharks normally feed.

    Then we could say oops you know, it's in a shark's nature to attack what they think is food. After all they are just sharks.

    Dumb idea huh? Oh well, a girl can dream.

    I'm going to Florida soon and (knowing my luck) either me or mom's gonna have Aunt Flo coming to, so goodbye, swimming.
    So you broke down, trying to leave town, I broke down crying on your return. You left me feeling hopeful, I'll never see your face again. You made for a bad lover's liver. You stole all the covers and busted my head. You made me such an asshole, I wish we'd never met. I'm tired of being bored. I'm through with the headaches.

    I live in Florida also and scuba dive(divemaster). Follow the recomendations about not swimming near drop offs etc... and things will be fine. You have to remember sharks have no hands so unfortunately the only way they can feel is with their teeth.

    It is safe to swim down here just watch out for the boaters, I even let my 6 year old boogieboard yesterday in Volusia county(shark bite capital of the world). I know you must be thinking WTF? He knows what they can do. In fact he loves sharks. We have gone swimming with reef sharks together(under close supervision of course).

    Here is a classic story from vacation last week. I was on vacation in the Keys and diving off of Marathon. My wife wanted to go snorkeling with the kids so she signed up on a boat I was diving off of(the dive in the same area as snorkelers). I was so excited to let my son see me diving off of a boat and watch him snorkel above me. Well the waves kicked up on the way out and my wife started feeling woozy. The 6 and 13 year old snorkeled under a instructors supervision while I dove. On the way to the second site my 6 year old started getting sea sick, puking overboard. I decided to stay above and be with him. The last thing I wanted him to feel abandoned by his father on a boat feeling like shit. Well the divers got in the water and on of the said "Look at the shark!" My 6 year old heard this lifted his head from the side of the boat, grabbed his mask and snorkel and jumped right in the water. I kid you not. He never saw the shark it was gone.


    TopTimi where do you dive?

    None of the above. I would choose option G which I've made up myself.

    G- Start dividing up his stuff with your other friends, promise to take "real good" care of his wife and tell him he can forget that $10 he owes me.
