    I love shark week.

    I've been watching the Discovery Channel/On Demand most of the day.

    Here's a pic of a juvenile Great White I took in Monterey.

    A friend of mine had lunch the other day with a guy who does not believe in sharks. He has never seen one and is convinced that sharks were made up to scare people. However, he's open to one day visiting an aquarium and will adjust his position if he can see a shark in captivity.

    Sharks are very scary. I could believe them to be a plot.

    Slim, is that pic from the Aquariaum? I was there last August and they didn't have one. In fact, as I recall, no aquarium has ever been able to keep one for long. When I was a kid, some dudes caught one out by the Farallons, and it ended up in the Steinhart Aquarium in GG Park, but they released soon after. Monterey had one a few years after that, but it died.

    Sharks are elegant, graceful, sinister and dangerous. I once watched a hammerhead shark, 'captured' off Clearwater Beach, Florida. I was 8 years old.
    Shark finned Cadillacs are still my favorites. What a thrill it was, to see one cruise up your drive.

    Can't believe the NHL doesn't have cheerleaders.

    Monterey has been able to keep two separate white's in captivity for an extended period of time. The first time anyone's been able to do so. The first one was released back into the wild a few years ago, and the second one was released just after I visited last year.

    Sharks are cool. I wouldn't want to come face to face with one though.

    I have a great appreciation for whales. It blows my mind how a creature so large can exist.

    I've been in the water with one a couple times. One time it was a harmless blue shark. Still scary, though, because it's still a shark and still looks like one. The other time it was a not so harmless Mako shark. Thankfully, the Mako was far away, and I was close to shore, and there was something of a reef between us. Still, I got the hell out of the water fast.
