No other animal on earth is more sensationalized than sharks. Forget all the logical reasons not to be afraid, such as people aren’t on the menu and the bigger danger is drowning, sharks live in the same world as airplane crashes and quicksand. The chances of an incident are tiny compared to the dangers of driving the freeway, but we don’t bat an eyelash at flying down the freeway separated from death by painted lines on the pavement. That said, planes crash, people sink in quicksand (don’t they?), and sharks occasionally break logic. What follows is the proof. Don’t continue if you’re squeamish.
