Didn't see the first shark for about a half-hour. Tiger. 13-footer. You know how you know that in the water, Chief? You can tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know, was that our bomb mission was so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin' by, so we formed ourselves into tight groups. It was sorta like you see in the calendars, you know the infantry squares in the old calendars like the Battle of Waterloo and the idea was the shark come to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and sometimes that shark he go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away.

Sometimes that shark looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a shark is he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn't even seem to be livin'... 'til 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 your poundin' and your hollerin' those sharks come in and... they rip you to pieces.

You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks there were, maybe a thousand. I do know how many men, they averaged six an hour. Thursday mornin', Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player. Boson's mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. He bobbed up, down in the water, he was like a kinda top. Upended. Well, he'd been bitten in half below the waist.

At noon on the fifth day, a Lockheed Ventura swung in low and he spotted us, a young pilot, lot younger than Mr. Hooper here, anyway he spotted us and a few hours later a big ol' fat PBY come down and started to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened. Waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went into the water. 316 men come out, the sharks took the rest, June the 29th, 1945.

The guy is kind of a dumbass (I hope his family doesn't frequent Fark)

He was swimming 200 meters off shore doing an impersonation of a sea lion. If you are looking to get eaten by a large shark - that's the way to do it.

Shame all the sharks that will be killed over this. No snark, i think a dozen or so dead people is kind of a bargain compared with the massive amounts of sharks we harvest.

stevie1der: AverageAmericanGuy: If you gain their trust, great white sharks are actually quite docile.

Hell of a step one there though.


lol yeah besides great whites are solitary apex predators they have no need for the concept of "trust" and therefore probably never evolved one.

Neither do those guns.
Assault rifles aren't known for being very powerful.

Doesn't seem so hard. Here's some chick swimming with a white.

TNel: That's why I will not swim in the ocean.  Humans are not apex predators once we step foot into the water, screw it the sharks can have the water.

I know the odds of getting attacked are slim to none but that guy probably thought the same thing before he became dinner.  Just need to get the kids terrified of sharks and then I won't ever have to go the beach again (other than lakes of course, and then only  waist deep... damn phobias)


Bull Sharks and Greenland Sharks tolerate and hunt fresh water.  Have a nice bath.

Adam Strange, 46, was attacked and pulled under water

I'm guessing he left his jetpack on the beach.

FTA:  'He was still alive. He put his head up. We called him to swim over the rock to where we were.'
'He raised his hand up and then while he was rising his hand up we saw another attack and pull him in the water.
'He came back up. His head was on the water...then we notice he was already dead'


Holy bleepity, bleep BLEEP! That is straight out of a horror movie. I didn't even witness it but the image in my head makes me want to curl up in a ball and weep for my mommy.
