Avoiding a shark attack

Post by Rigsby » Sat Jan 15, 2005 8:33 am

According my girlfriend, the only thing that masks the scent of blood in the water to a shark is urine. So if you're in that situation you just need to piss yourself before you see the shark, not after i guess.

And supposedly, if you punch a shark in the nose, it will briefly stun it. Probably long enough to let you get about six feet before it comes after you with anger and vengeance. But still, you can always say you stunned a shark.

What if you punched the shark in the face while wearing the infinity guantlet? That shark would get fucked up, that's what.

So maybe the best thing to do then is to piss a little, then if still finds you punch it in the face and then swim off releasing the rest of your piss as you go. I'll try to bare that in mind next time it comes up.

When I was a kid I had a dream a shark bit me completely in half with one chomp! I woke up and my stomach tingled like crazy. Thankfully, no pee was involved.

It was the second one, but your third addition is a good call, you'd probably need to save some energy for that second punch, what with the adrenaline and all.

Hell, just piss in the water anyway. It's very satisfying.

I'm convinced Southern California's beach water contains about 47% piss. You're not the only one with the idea...
