The tomato deserves to be eaten.. haven't you ever seen Attack of the Killer Tomatoes?

Sharks and snakes on the other hand.. they don't deserve to be eaten. They should be cherished and admired from afar. :D

I saw Jaws, Jaws the Revenge, and Jaws III.

You do realize that Peter Benchley said he was sorry for writing Jaws since it caused so much paranoia and fear of Great Whites?

Ehh.. people are always afraid of snakes and sharks. Poor misunderstood critters who are really beautiful worth admiring.

Tomatoes on the other hand belong in a sauce or diced up with some Italian dressing and mozzarella broiled until the cheese is golden brown. :D

Yep. I love snakes and sharks. Doesn't stop me from eating them, though. It does, however, keep me from swimming in the ocean. And I respect snakes a lot too, but I know how to handle them.

Oh yeah, now that's making good use of a tomato.


Speaking of sharks, here's one of my favorite photos. It was in National Geographic.

Because I'm a walking encyclopedia of useless facts.. do you know that dishwashing soap supposedly repels sharks?

I don't swim in the ocean due to jellyfish and stingrays.. those are some scary suckers. :)

I like to take pictures of snakes rather than handle them.

Tomatoes are yummy. Sliced tomatoes and sliced onions marinaded overnight in a good red wine vinegar and oil dressing with sliced black olives, and some fresh herbs rocks too. :)

Nice picture. I'll have to look at it better when I get home and not on this tiny screen. :(

Sea Kayak $500.00

Trip to Australia to use Sea Kayak $4500.00

Cost for getting out stains when approached by Great White larger than Sea Kayak .... Priceless :shock:

That's no lie!

From what I've read about the guys, they put a kayak out there un-manned first to see if the great whites would mess with it. Apparently, they just swam around it investigating but never offered to attack. So they used the kayaks and it turned out to be a great way to study the sharks up close. As for me.....I think I'll just look at their pictures. That's close enough for me.

And there you have it folks.. proof that sharks are misunderstood and feared.

I'd love to be that close to a great white.

That it would. My oldest sibling got to dive with sharks in Africa (not great white).. and she got to touch a great white. I'm jealous!

Of course, the sharks could have been waiting for something more tasty than a fiberglass kayak.
Kind of like eating celery without the peanut butter.
