    Why do you think it is odd that people want to save an apex predator that helps keep the delicate food chain working? People fight to save bees and all sorts of other non mammals. Every time I hear a surfer say they think it's stupid that people want to save sharks I can't help but think they are just afraid of them. Would you care that people want to save sharks if they did not attack humans?

    They are needed as part of the food chain I agree it's the saving part that is in question I mean just look at the recent sightings catches etc they just don't seem really endangered to me... Anytime you mess with Mother Nature it messes back with a vengeance imo the limits put on sharks catches have allowed some of the species to thrive and even possibly overpopulate this the scrambling for food and daring shallow water entries that didn't occur much in the past(based on my experiences only) endangered is like an3 toed sloth in Malaysia or something where's there like 17 not when I toss out a cut fish and reel in many types of whatever shark u want... I just can't keep it and have to throw it back..... Am I scared of them I dunno I am a bit more cautious in the water than I was before but the probing question deals with kids and what do you tell them or decide if they should enter the water and how deep and when or if ? I mean think of the guilt if something were to happen and you said it was ok? I've always left it as its a chance and so is most everything in life you look at the odds , try to increase them and then do it..
    Survey the beach
    Look for fishermen
    Look for park boats who may be chumming
    Steer clear of piers with lots of fishermen
    Avoid baitfish schools if seagulls bring notice to one around
    Time your ride to dropping low tide or just turning .. Avoid mid high or full high if possible
    Avoid dawn and dusk
    No jewelry
    Don't go alone
    That's about all u can do
    Honestly I haven't followed these .....in past I've go out near the pier by myself with jewelry(necklace) at full high tide in the evening at full moon even...if ur number up its up and not much you can do imo

    No one is saying kill all sharks. Even if man tried to exterminate all sharks we couldn't. But thinning out the numbers near shore is a smart move with out doing any damage at all to the food chain.

    So by that logic I have seen a lot of homeless guys and gals at the exit ramp by my office lately. Is it cool if we just go start shooting them dead in the streets? It won't hurt the food chain none plus it will improve the scenery.

    The "scientists" that reported that, if they were scientist even, misunderstand evolution.

    Yup. That's not really how it works.

    Maybe evolve was the wrong word, idk, don't care, but I think you get the point. Adapt maybe?

    Could just be a result of random mutation, combined with a lack of natural selection, which would be evolution. But that is not likely. Without natural selection, you are just left with an abundance of random mutations. That means some of the jellies would still have stingers, while others would not.

    What DawnPSUP presented was Lamarckian in nature. You know, if the giraffe stretch, his neck would elongate and then pass those "acquired characteristics" on to progeny. Evolution is a story of "reproductive success" more than anything else. Yes, perhaps a mutation occurred deleting stingers, but for some reason that isolated species reproduced more successfully into a more favorable environment as compared to stingered jellies, etc. Chance and contingency play greatly in the story.

    Definitely not afraid of them. I think attacks happen because they think we are something else. I just think it's crazy that people start going crazy to defend sharks after attacks. People don't even bother to show compassion for the kids who get bitten. I know we are entering there territory but humans are a weird bunch these days. I especially love they wack jobs who act like their dogs are their kids. They dress them up like humans. Send cards and have their dog sign it. These people are retarded especially when they compare taking care of a dog to kids. That is funny ****.
