    A lot of shooters are seen wearing hoodies - I think hoodies shoulld be outlawed.

    Ernest Hemingway used to shoot sharks from a boat with a submachine gun to protect his tuna catch that was tied to the side of his boat.
    I guess that would be a positive encounter.

    The word "negative" is superfluous.
    Well, it could be superfluous, but a positive shark encounter is possible, like watching one from a safe place.

    Good one! I'd love to pose that question to a lefty newsmedia type and listen to them fumble around trying to answer it.

    This stuff is just plain flabbergasting sometimes.

    Matt, this is the kind of thing that the millennials in your other thread get. Eventually there’s going to be push back.

    They can PC it all they want but I don't think the shark cares. And I don't care if the shark's feelings get hurt. Gonna do what they do.

    Thanks. That article is better than the GMA report. I can see the differences they point out, not that any of it would mean much to the person in the water.
