    Jaysus! Couldn't he have just rolled her or something?

    I reckon I'm as misanthropic as Seldom Seen. I suppose I'd try to help if I saw a homo sapiens in trouble, but if they were all panicky and fighting me, I'd probably say eff it and let 'em drown.

    u know its hard to feel bad for people when they think like that.no warning signs what more do they want?a no walking sign?are they going to sue the ocean?people in philly shouldn't even go to the beach lol,stay in philly.yea it could've been preventable by not leaving your house that day.its like getting diabetes from mcdonalds and saying there wasn't a warning sign lol
