(In really spooky, haunted house type voice) BEEEEEWAAAAARRRE OF SHARK WEEK...Muahahahaha
People are talking about them, and not surprisingly, I'm not caring about them.
I don't really get the obsession over sharks. I guess it's just the fascination of Jaws, mixed with really good promoters involved with shark week.
Whatever it may be, I just don't get it. Looking back now. I think my nonchalant attitude comes from a class in college.
The big news story, "Shark attacks on the rise"!
The reality of it; only a slight few more attacks actually happened. People were actually afraid of this headline, while in reality, it was complete nonsense. Then 9/11 happened, and of course, sharks were out of the spotlight.
I don't hate the creature, but like I said, I just don't see why people get wrapped in the hype.
So because of which, we're going to have another fun interactive blog.
Rules apply the same as last time.
I want you to think about the 20 things that are statistically more dangerous than sharks. Anything that is designed to harm people (ex...guns, bombs,etc) are not on today's list.
See if what you picked came up. Hopefully this will also work on emails (fingers crossed)!!! Just simply highlight the words after the **start here**, click, and slowly drag down to reveal the hidden list. GOOD LUCK!

You can believe and be fascinated as much as you want about sharks. But at the end of the day, statistics always win. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get my TV pitch ready for "Vending Machine Mayhem" week.
