    "Swimmers at Australian beaches are usually reassured by statistics that indicate they are more likely to be struck by lightning than chomped by a shark. But, after three non-fatal shark attacks in the country in less than 48 hours and a deadly one last month, some are wondering if the odds have changed — and whether Australia's efforts to protect sharks are to blame. "

    ...and you know gays are the tastier, tenderer bits...they would go for us first if they knew how to identify us!

    Don't our bigger baskets identify us? icon_wink.gif

    I've always thought governments around the world, including the US, underplay the shark risk, to preserve the tourist and beach trade. Never trust the evaluation of an unbiased source.

    It serves the interests of governments for the answer to always be that sharks are not a threat. Therefore, the answer is always that sharks are not a threat. Whether they are or not would be better determined by objective agencies with no vested interests in the outcome.

    Considering what is happening to the shark population around the world, I applaud the move to protect the population. Human beings need to take caution when swimming in certain areas.
