Which will be real handy when I'm sitting in traffic on I-4.

The new beepers are a welcome technology, however some have complained about the size that range from 20 to 25 feet in length weighing 3 tons. The only setting is an intense 'vibrate' option and the service can cost some an arm and a leg.

Amity means friendship!

Of course, Sharks are attracted to beeping and vibrating underwater devices.

"I had no idea what happened," Schauman said. "I sat up, I was facing in the opposite direction, and then there was this huge pool of blood all around me."

This happens to me whenever there is a full moon, I thought it was normal?

too bad my cell phone and pager are not waterproof. Doh!

"get a alert within five minutes of a dangerous shark sighting and that's the only time they're sent - for a dangerous shark sighting where a lifeguard would close a beach,"
Funny - I didn't think it was the sighting that was dangerous- so much as the biting. hmph.

nah don't need a beeper....just listen for the scary jaws music or look for the nymphomaniac teenagers--both of these things usually precede a shark attack. Also I think its not pc to call them sharks anymore....they prefer the term population control devices or the "fighting great whites"

The water proof thing was my tag when I submitted it.

I also think that most people that have been bitten by sharks are on vacation from out of state,unless they have nationwide shark coverage it wont do much good for those people. The locals don't have time to go to the beach, we are working.

I'll alert her to shark attack, no worries !

Dumb bimbo doesn't know the difference
between a shark attack and a shark bite.

If she was attacked she wouldn't be around
to have this lame web site.
The shark took a bite, ironically it didn't
taste like fish, and let go - thus leaving
a bite mark (see photos).

Someone please end her fifteen minutes.

Heynow: Well, she was pregnant at the time...
