- I would imagine that there would be a large amount of involuntary gagging
- I don't know about you but I'm not into swallowing it

I was punctured in the hand by a Spiny Dogfish one day when I caught him and was trying to release him back. There's a reason for their name... Bled quite freely all over my kayak. Darn little goober of a fish!

As long as hollywood keeps making terrifying shark movies, there will be people with this irrational fear.

I was suiting up yesterday and this guy comes up to chat. Says he sooo afraid of sharks. I tell him sharks are wussies, I'm more afraid of jellyfish.

Got me wondering... How many people have been attacked by sharks here? Turns out, one, a surfer. Non-fatal.
