Paging Mr. Darwin, Mr. C. Darwin please pick up the white courtesy phone.

I want to bring the animals into the public arena, educate people so that they know they are not blood thirsty killing machines.

What the hell? How did someone beat me to a Jaws reference?

I'm turning in my resignation.

He knew he was safe, because tiger sharks cannot bite through giant brass ones that clank.

I'm very annoyed by the "we fear these poor, misunderstood, gentle creatures of mother nature because we don't understand them" attitude from people with no common sense. We fear them because they are dangerous wild carnivores, and we are large, slow, relatively weak sacks of juicy meat.
 
2009-12-11 11:18:21 PM  
Yeah, hop your ass into the water with these sweet docile animals and then give us your report

"It was totally spur of the moment but I knew it was incredibly safe."

I, for one, quite agree and could not imagine a safer position to be in.

"Look! Dangerous carnivores aren't eating me because they're eating something else instead."

This guy is batsh*t insane. Looks a lot more like the sharks don't give a damn if their noses are being stroked because they're ferociously ripping apart a dead whale. If the dead whale and the guy had switched places, he probably wouldn't be singing the same tune. Mostly because he would have a dead whale on top of him, but the sharks devouring him wouldn't help either.

And that's why I smoke, I know I'll get spat out after the first bite so the shark/bear/eagle/lion/tiger... will go for the vegan next

I think you can smoke plants and still be considered a yummy vegan snack. Depending on what you're smoking, you may not be organic.

Tiger sharks in the wild out in the ocean? Pretty much fine and dandy so long as you don't piss them off.

Tiger sharks in what basically looks like a feeding frenzy as they rip chunks of whale off a large carcass you just HAPPEN to be standing on? Yeah, not so much fine and dandy.

*sigh* Such a large part of me was chanting "fallfallfallfallfall" throughout that entire article...

Feeding is a time when they are supposed to be at their most ferocious. But I think they quite enjoyed me stroking their noses.


Right. And your Gold-Fish misses you when you're gone.

lol, he said he was safe because sharks can't jump. My ass, they do jump, great whites do at least. When they hunt seals they out of the water into the air, tests done show that even great whites in areas w/o seals will jump out of the water after the dummy seals that the testers were dragging.

Uh, showing that there is a difference between white sharks and tiger sharks was actually the whole point of this stunt. He wanted to say that people fear all sharks because of the ferocious few.

Thank you good sir! My old stand-by rationalizations were growing tired, but I'll use this in the future.

Wasn't there some other Austrailian conservationist who would tempt fate/nature with his audacity around wild animals? Whatever happened to that guy?

Doing that shiat isn't even original!
Looky what I found!

Everyone living in Australia already knows that every hell-spawned creature out there is trying to kill you, eat your baby, and devour your soul. That's why they send their Steve Irwins out to the ocean to take out the aquatic monsters.
Land monsters is where the real trouble begins.
Remember that scene from Indiana Jones where they were walking on insects and that kid made a remark about fortune cookies? Well, replace the *crunch* with a *squish* immediatly followed by HUGE, FAST, and VENOMOUS snakes simultanously striking you, filling your veins with enough venom to fill a can of Foster's beer-- that's Australia.

FTA:
They are like a pet dog. You can share beautiful, incredible interaction with them, but if you do not show them respect, even a pit bull can rip you to shreds.

WTF? Is this the best example this clown could come up with? I would have thought that "beautiful, incredible interaction" and "pit bull" are mutually exclusive terms. This writer needs to go walk with the grizzlies and feel the love.

Also...this Deschamps character is nuttier than a squirrel turd.

120lb Blacktip Shark I caught this September of the coast of Topsail Island, NC.

///I actually like sharks, and this was done 100% legally on a charter boat. Still have a ton of shark meat in the freezer, along with loads of Mackerel.

I am willing to bet that gorgor not only has that image,but also has images of every other furrie species doing a big girl.and also doing a thin girl, and doing guys, and images of all of those vicey versey, all cross referenced for ease of use.

this one sub-sub-sub-sub-sub-sub set, to the 11th power (because it's one more than 10) is but an atom in the galaxy that is gorgor.

I bow to his greatness and thank him.
