    No, I mean why get close to these things if you could avoid it. As in, stay close to the shore... better yet, on the sand.
    They don't mind shallow water at all. I've seen it myself

    It's safer in the ocean than on the border of land/air and sea.
    A lot of predators mistake people for other prey if looked at from below.
    People are normally not on the menu.
    That said, I would not go into the water with a great white or an orca...
    Sometimes the teeth are just too big.

    Snow and Ice. That is what I am going to stick to until sharks learn how to ski.

    If you're in Colorado to ski/board let me know, I'd hit the slopes (but Telluride is too far away for a day trip for me).
    BTW: My wife worked for Warren Miller for 11 years, although he's retired now I got to meet him once and he was a really cool guy...

    Oh. I assumed you meant $#@! but I thought you meant the shark would turn brown, not the water.

    I used to live in Florida (Boca Raton), and one day I was about 15 feet off the beach in the water, just laying out on a raft. There were no waves, just a really calm day. Suddenly, I heard lots of shouting and people yelling...it kept going on so I finally raised my head...turns out they were yelling at me and pointing to a black shadow cruising towards me.

    So I got myself positioned on the raft as defensively as possible without submerging any limbs in the water and waited...it was a large manta ray, and I watched it just glide on past me. I hope I never have to meet a shark in person - I know attacks are rare but still.

    However, I should state that over the years I spent so many days on the beach, and that was the only "close encounter" I ever had, so from a percentage rate that's pretty good.

    I grew up in hollywood florida where shark attacks are pretty common. My mom used to never let me go out 3 feet in the water, which is why I never got attacked by sharks.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    There is a rule of thumb among sharks.
    They bite you once real quick, then retrieve and swim 3 complete rounds around you, before eating you alive.
    They learned that if they don't do that humans tend to taste like $#@!...

    True, but they protect you for those by shooting off that canon or whatever in the morning to try to incite it.

    Also, with man made snow this isn't really a problem.

    I think I may have mentioned this earlier, but my wife worked for Warren Miller Productions...in their movie Cold Fusion they not only film snow riding in Iran, but Kenya as well! You wouldn't believe the places where there is snow and people have skied...
