    It’s wild enough watching a shark propel itself from the depths of the ocean to attack a seal. I can’t even imagine seeing it happen to a person. It probably immediately realized it wasn’t prey which is why it left half the dude’s body just hanging out atop the water.

    I wouldn’t think it’s all that deep there but I’m no oceanographer.

    That’s seriously some shit straight out of a bad horror movie.

    fuck man I hope the force of the collision or being bit/crushed in half made the dude lose consciousness right away. Brutal

    500-pound bear known as "Hank the Tank" breaks into another Lake Tahoe home: "Lost all fear of people"

    A 500-pound bear broke into a home in South Lake Tahoe on Friday — and it isn't the first time. The bear, known as "Hank the Tank," has broken into dozens of homes in the area and become quite a problem for locals, CBS Sacramento reports.

    Locals are contemplating whether or not to have the bear killed, as they believe it may be the only option at this point.

    The bear is well-known and now wanted by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. A spokesperson said the bear has damaged dozens of homes and is responsible for more than 150 calls.

    The Department of Fish and Wildlife have been trying to track Hank for more than six months.

    "These are neighborhoods, there's a lot of people around, traffic and cars. So, we have to do this in a way that is safe for both the public and the bear itself," said spokesperson Peter Tira. "This is a severely food habituated bear. What that means is this is a bear that has lost all fear of people and it sees people and homes as a source of food."

    The most recent break-in took place on Catalina Drive Friday morning. The bear had broken a small window and squeezed into the home, where the homeowners had no idea how to get him out.

    Officers responded and banged on the outside of the house until Hank came out the back door. They then stayed in the area to ensure he continued on his way without damaging or entering other homes.

    Being left to die in the middle of the ocean with floatation is much worse. I'll take the shark 10/10 times if I had to choose.

    There've been at least a couple of instances of that happening. This couple was in the water for 19 hours.

    Was randomly reading about shark attack fatalities. This one takes the cake: during WW2, off the coast of Florida, a k 47 blimp was shot down by a U Boat and crashed in the water. Right as they're being rescued, a shark attacks a soldier.

    As far as the shark attack cake taker, it has to be the USS Indianapolis. Unbelievable story. And instead of YouTube videos or short podcast episodes, anyone interested should listen to this book. Tells the whole ordeal in incredible detail with firsthand accounts from survivors.

    Listen to In Harm's Way by Doug Stanton on Audible. https://www.audible.com/pd?asin=B01KIQGXWO&source_code=ASSORAP0511160006&share_location=pdp

    This is still the shark attack story that stuck with me the most. It also involves oceanic whitetips (same as the USS Indianapolis situation).

    decompression is scary in and of itself. 325 feet iirc is like insane depth for recreational diving. Surprised he didn’t die of an aneurysm on the ascent. I can’t imagine the torment of save my friend/save myself/ is a shark going to bite off my leg or brain going to explode fear matrix involved in that story

    My favorite story about that scene is that they had to do it twice.

    The first time, Shaw convinced Spielberg to let him film the scene drinking real liquor. He got blackout drunk before filming and they ended it.

    Shaw somewhat sobered up, and apologized to Spielberg at 1:00 AM that night, promising to do it again.

    He was at the set at 7:30 AM the next day and shot the entire scene in four takes, brilliantly, probably still half drunk or at least extremely hung over.

    I grew up on a farm with hogs and cows and was hardly ever scared of being around them or in pens with them but everytime I was around a horse it’s was always uncomfortable, they can be mean fuckers.
