I have been looking forward to the doc on the USS Indiana sinking and subsequent attacks all month.  We watch Dirty Jobs and Man vs. Wild quite a bit and its been heavily promoted by Discovery Channel.

Just caught a promo for Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.  And it jogged my memory about something that just happened in my area this week:

THIS STORY made the local news.  This shark washed up on the south shore of Long Island the other day.



It's a huge shark!  At least 20 feet long.  But ultimately harmless, since it was a basking shark.  These sharks have no teeth and feed on plankton.

So what do you think about going for a swim off of Long Island or the Jersey shore now?

Same as always, too much trash in the water to go swimming there.  ;)

You know, if I was fishing or swimming and I saw that thing... I'd probably have a heart attack.

Let's not get personal about our friends from Staten Island.

We're heading for a vacation on one of NC's barrier islands next week.  We almost always have a siting of one while we're there -- but they are always the kind with big white teeth.

I'm vacationing on Oak Island in NC for the 4th year in a row. This morning we saw a 4ft shark just a few feet offshore in maybe 12-15" of water. We have always known they were close by on OKI - but not that close!  I know the odds are in our favor - but it makes this mama just a little nervous to have her 8yo start Surf Camp tomorrow - though it doesn't seem to phase her one bit. She just wants to surf.     8)

Shark Week is definitely one of the highlights of the summer as always.  But is anyone else getting annoyed with the fake documentaries that Discovery Networks have been running over the past couple of years?  I would have gladly tuned in to a show about the prehistoric shark Megalodon.  A shark that was as big as a whale is fascinating all on it's own.  So why did Discovery need to produce a fake documentary, complete with their fictionalized "home video" of a whale that had been bitten in half?

To that end, I found the shows about the Great White Sharks that have been frequenting Cape Cod far more interesting simply because it's a real, natural occurance.

I was extremely disappointed with the Megaladon fakeumentary as well as their late night talk show.  The could've done an actual show about the Megaladon and I would've been happy.
