One of my favorite insults is "she's uglier than a mud shark".

I cannot imagine how terrifying a flying great white shark would be. Sharks are scary enough; flying sharks are da debil. Personally, I think we should give in to their demands, lest they get angry and begin to use their superpowers against us.

I'll have to ask him. It's quite possible. His services are in demand as a charter captain for fishing for mako sharks. I gather they are much more spectacular fighters when hooked than most sharks, often leaping high out of the water.

Why don't you get one? Sharks of the small species are fairly readily available at reasonable cost and are suitable for keeping in salt-water aquariums.

I asked my replacement about that today. He said he hadn't been on Shark Week but had appeared a number of times on "Shark Hunter" programs.

I have never really decided what the most baleful, deadly looking creature on earth would be:

One of the most dangerous venomous snakes like a king cobra or black mamba.

One of the big killer sharks.

A large salt-water or Nile crocodile

Anybody have any thoughts?

I've never been in the water with anything bigger than 12ish feet, but sharks have never gotten to me. There's a bit of an adrenaline rush, some wariness, and then you're good. The thought of running in to a mamba (green or black) scares the hell out of me. They're huge, incredibly fast, aggressive, and the green ones have a bad habit of hanging out in trees. Rattle snakes, copper heads, cotton mouths, etc. don't bug me, but a mamba is no bueno. Alligators and crocodiles don't do it for me either, but they're too lazy looking to appear deadly IMO.

If we're talking about pure looks, I think a lot of people would choose some type of spider. It's not terrifically macho, but I think it's true. As for me, I don't know. I'd probably go with a big croc.

Shark Week was so much better when I was a kid. The programming now isn't nearly as good, way to commercialized.
