Walker: Hundreds of beachgoers waved off social distancing protocols as they swarmed toward the big fish, she said.

You're doing it wrong. You are supposed to run away form sharks, not towards them you morans.

I think that the last few months have proved "avoid it like the plague" needs to be retired since humans don't do that.

When I was a kid my grandparents had a great old house that backed right up to the rockaway beach boardwalk.  We had to shower the sand off in an outdoor wooden stall before coming back into the house after swimming.  I never quite appreciated how awesome that house and its ocean view was, I guess because I wasn't crazy about getting dragged away from my toys to go visit my grandparents.

We're gonna have to learn to live with this. We can't shut down the economy and stay home forever.


How about y'all stay home enough to maybe stop killing under 3M?

Literally, weeks in the beginning rather than digging heels in about quarantines, and weeks on the other end to actually HAVE numbers down, and with masks and reasonable measures--like staggered openings to see what the effects ACTUALLY were--and we wouldn't be racing to 3M dead, and a CDC that cannot expect to contain this. But hey, someone got to go out and get a latte.The rush to open without any thought, and without any restraint is seeing Arizona's numbers rise to dizzying new heights. That's what premature opening has done for them. And it makes me glad that I'm on the Right Coast, and the people I care about who are in NM are nestled high in the mountains and away from these jackasses.But hey, guess it's worth 3-4M dead people if you can get a haircut, right?

Out there is a Perfect Engine, an Eating Machine that is a miracle of evolution - it swims and eats and makes little baby sharks, that's all.

Running towards them is okay, wading or swimming towards them on the other hand, not so okay.

Can we just shoot these people?


So...your frustration with people who, granted are being stupid, is to want to shoot them?  That seems like reasonable response to your feelings of frustration to you?

iheartscotch: If you've ever been in the ocean; you've very likely been within 300 yards of a shark. Sharks don't eat people.


Yeah, but it's that whole "exploratory test bite" thing that's a pisser.

Well, that, and mistaken identity:

Chinesenookiefactory: So the beaches were open to sunbathing but closed to swimming due to Covid-19? How would swimming make it worse?


I assume the logic is that fewer people (eg families) would go to the beach if they knew they weren't allowed to swim.

Statistically speaking, Aunt Carol's thanksgiving pork roast is more dangerous than a shark.
