C'mon knifeyspoony,

There is NO doubt that it DOES NOT attract sharks = there is doubt that it does attracts sharks.

You know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces.

There is NO doubt that it DOES NOT attract sharks = There is NO doubt that it FAILS TO attract sharks != There is doubt that it attracts sharks.

But what I meant is that when the dude from TFA said the device definitely doesn't attract sharks, that was an example of the argument from authority fallacy.

FarkinFarker: I would never worry that the shark could jerk to the right and take my arm off in a split second. No sir, not me. Not one bit.

Why do people assume that animals are preternaturally fast? Have you never teased a cat or dog?

I work with wildlife. How many examples of animals who can move at least 3x the length of their own bodies before you have 8/10ths of a second to react would you like?

Meh. I've seen enough Discovery Channel shows to know that sharks are docile creatures, aggressive along the lines of kittens or baby mice. Big ones like that? Pudding.


But srsly, those shark POD things and whatever the one was mentioned in the article are tentative barriers at best. Ain't nothing short of a steel door going to stop a hungry shark, and steel doors are hard to carry underwater. This is one I've actually researched, and you won't find me diving with one. Bangstick, yes. Shark pisser-offer, no.

Yes. My finger is still healing from my cat's bite. Sometimes I win. Sometimes he wins.

Of course not, he'd probably just use the arm to drag you under to your death, more to eat that way...

I don't know the story, either, but also love that image! I have it on my bulletin board at work, under my calendar, for emergency purposes. Like when my stoopid hoor boss ticks me off, I look at the shark and feel better.

And I'm betting the same flawed logic applies for pink feathered boas.

kuuni: Why do people assume that animals are preternaturally fast? Have you never teased a cat or dog?

Ever crossed your mind that the cat/dog isn't TRYING to hurt you?

Go do some travelling and check out a live shark in action. They swim around lazy and slow... But when they attack (in this case feeding time) you wouldn't even believe how farking fast they are. From a lazy 10knot cruise to something like 80mph in just a little bit longer than their body length... It'll make you never want to go swimming again.

Oh, and BTW, the grey shark paddling around an aquarium at your local SeaWorld doesn't count. Sharks aren't very smart, but even they figure out pretty quick that if they swim in circles long enough, someone will drop a tasty chunk of tuna in their path. They don't get worked up about it.

I like this quip...

"Nobody wearing a Shark Shield has ever been attacked by a shark"

He obviously is not familiar with the whole coorelation/causation thing. Not that many people in general are attacked by sharks. How many actually wear the "shark shield"? If he was merely stating that they don't attract more sharks, I am better with his statement, but if he is trying to say they obviously ward them off, then I would need more proof to believe that.

Nobody wearing a sombrero with Russian nesting dolls stuffed down the front of their wetsuit has ever been attacked by a shark either.

misanthropic1: There is NO doubt that it DOES NOT attract sharks = there is doubt that it does attracts sharks.

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but English does not work like mathematics. And just because you think "logically, x should mean y" does not make x mean y.

Booneht: Does the double negative rule not apply here or did he just stay that the shark shield is designed to attract sharks?

Since "the double negative rule" only exists in the minds of people who don't understand how English works, I'd have to say the answer is "none of the above."

You know that you can do a dive WITHOUT a cage from some Fl companies (they do it off the bahamas for legal reasons) (no need to tell her that they float the dead fishies in your face)
