NEWS FLASH: SHARKS EAT PEOPLE

This little known fact (to some) is especially true if one finds him/herself in the unfortunate condition of swimming around in the water with a bunch of chum (no, not your buddy from England, but bloody fish heads, guts and various parts and pieces used to attract said man eaters).

Now several generations of Americans have been ocean traumatized by the movie Jaws. We aren't messin' with sharks...PERIOD. Evidently, the Europeans aren't such big fans of "We need a bigger boat," and they come to the good ole U.S. of A. to get up close and personal with Jaws and his razor teethed homies.

So an outfit in Florida sets up dives in the open ocean to get up close and personal with Mr. Shark Tale himself...and BELIEVE IT OR NOT, somebody got eaten.

SHOCKING! We know…

According to eCanadaNow.com, which labeled the story “In Curiosity:”

“A tourist from Austria has died after being attacked and bitten by a shark off of Florida. He was diving near the Bahamas at the time of the attack.49-year-old Markus Groh was on a commercial diving trip last Sunday. He was bitten 50 miles off of the coast of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.What this particular company does is offers a "face to face" meeting with sharks. They bait the waters with bloody fish parts to attract them. They run trips for shark enthusiasts and photographers. They stated there will be blood in the same water as the divers when this happens.Groh was airlifted to a hospital after being attacked, where he later died. The shark was seen but managed to get away.”

Ah, the food chain…easy come, easy go.

If your spouse gives you a gift certificate from Scuba Adventures in Riviera Beach, FL, you might start to rethink things.

*We know we don't need to tell you this, but the great white trying to eat the helicopter next to the Golden Gate Bridge is fake...right?

  1. Dude, just becase someone got killed by a shark is a stupid reason to freakout. what about the 150 people a year that die from falling coconuts? Or what about car accidents? Or what about dogs? Or what about people killing poeple? Or what about spontaneous human combustian? Hey what about snakes? Should I go on? 4 people a year die from sharks and you freak out. I think you need to rethink what your saying. If only 4 people out of 100 million a year die then you have issues. If that worries you then maybe you better walk home. Don't forget to not take the stairs. Please don't walk under tree's. If there is ice, stay inside, you might slip. Oh, I forgot, throw the snowboard away, and oh yes, don't drink water to fast. Last year 100 people died from drinking water to fast. So be safe bubble boy.
