Apropos of using camera equipment to clear a safety zone around you. I can attest from experience that a pro Nikon SLR swung around by the neck strap makes a very effective melee weapon during a riot.

Craw Fu: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Aren't hammerheads mostly curious and not terribly dangerous?

That's what I've always heard.  And watching the video, it looks like the shark is just checking out what's going on in his neighborhood and meeting the visitor.  And for all his trouble, he got punched in the face.  It doesn't pay to be a friendly shark.

Do you really care about its motivation while its taking your leg off?


/"He was just curious!" isn't quite as comforting as you might think

Not exactly the Fatal Frame sequel I was hoping for, but at least the franchise is getting some attention, I suppose.

""I don't want to be a statistic so next time I need to be more careful and take some more safety precautions and have another diver in the water," he said."

dkulprit: Rent Party: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Aren't hammerheads mostly curious and not terribly dangerous?

They are all mostly curious and not terribly dangerous right up until they decide to see how you taste.

Then they are apex predators and you are not at the top of the food chain.

Thats why you show the shark you are at the top of the food chain.  Hammerhead's eyes look mighty tasty and an easy target protruding from their head like that.

Lemme get a taste.  Then pee on it to show it who is boss.


I saw a guy get head-butted by a sixgill shark once.   I about crapped in my drysuit.

ozman: Per the reporter, "A GoPro, his only form of protection." I don't know, that pointy speargun in his right hand might be considered some form.


That's how you lose your speargun.
