    I don’t know where Martha’s Vineyard is. But that is some pretty water. I’d go swimming. Shark be damned.

      New England/Massachusetts/Cape Cod. Whatever tells you more.

      I used to swim in these waters – it was long time ago and I miss it. The only problem was the jellyfish – I got one of my arms paralyzed by some kind of jellyfish I didn’t even see – fortunately it happened close to the shore.

        Bummer. I’ve heard those hurt!

          It was a strange feeling – at first, it seemed as if a very soft net or tissue covered my arm and pars of the shoulder- felt weird but not unpleasant. A second or two later, it was followed by a sudden, excruciating pain which immobilized the affected body parts. I could easily become food for the seafood, had the shore been away and I panicked. I was lucky with the former because I did panic a bit :)…. still go swimming in sea but will never go nearly as far in as before this accident.

            I think that’s one life experience I’m going to pass on. I’ll take your word for it that it sucks.

    Fish are friends not food. People on the other hand are tasty and easy to catch.

    Looks to me like a bull shark, but they don’t come close to that length. Also, looks shorter than that length

      What I like about bull sharks: They go into sweet water. Inventive little buggers! I only go swimming in my bathtub.

        People always say that great whites are the scariest/worst sharks, but they have nothing on bull sharks. Those fuckers will attack anything, while great whites will only attack what they think is food, or perceive as a threat, which isn’t much

        • BearnieZardoz

          Yes. I have sharkophobia in a serious case (as an older teenager I once had a panic attack in a fucking LAKE), and I don’t like any shark larger than my hand, but emotions aside, I think the worst of the all is the Bull. Or maybe the hammerhead, because that one always shows up in brigade sized units.
