Boy examining shark as people watch


Brave boy. I've always had a weird fear of dead sharks. I expect them to come back to life and bite my face off.

Oh my god! That child must be dim (excuse my rudeness) because anyone in their right mind would never put their head that close to ANY shark- dead or alive. I used to scare myself out of the pool thinking that a shark would get me. They're scary beasts who have many great advantages- they are strong, they have lots of teeth, and when they are in water, they rule over us completely.

Exactly! They have been around since the dawn of time, and they just keep swimming.
