    shark infested waters

    i went kayaking yesterday and im pretty sure i saw a shark. He was 5-6 feet long and dark on the top. Does anybody know what kind of sharks are around dominica? are they man eaters?

    Additional warning: More people were killed by soda machines than sharks last year. (no joke).

    the thing i heard on the radio was about people's perceptiosn of risk and actual risk, and yea, it included soda machines, and a whole bunch of other hairbrained "gee wiz, that would never in a million years happen" kind of stuff, which happened in soem cases, hundreds of times more often then shark attacks.

    another thing, i was reading a thing not long ago, which had a compendium of every recorded shark attack in the US in the last 100 years. amazingly, they said greater then 90% were caused by people doing stupid stuff to the sharks. examples? a guy got bit after catching a shark, tieing it to a rock witha rope to film it "in the wild". then when he released it, it got revenge. alot of stuff like that. it was actually quite hilarious reading. stuff sane people would not do. it didnt say it, but i suspect ETOH is involved withalot of attacks.
