It never ceases to amaze me what qualifies as news on the interwebs. You see some people doing some pretty stupid things, most harkening back to the old saw that the 'number one cause of death among Rednecks is "Hey bubba... watch this!'" Like this video.
We'll that's exactly the case with this gem from the Weather Channel... who thanks to Jim Cantori are masters at making something dramatic out of nothing.
I've handled (and killed) more big fish than most people catch in a lifetime. So you've always got to be deliberate and think 2-3 steps ahead of the fish -- because the fish is always thinking ahead. Seems like a beach fisherman decides to pick up a shark (which looks to be a blacknose... close relative of the blacktip.) Only a couple of problems... a) he's not wearing shoes. b) he puts himself in a bad position by grabbing the shark by the tail and not securing its midsection or head.
Surprise, it turned around and tagged him on the foot!
Really? That's news? And why is it even on the Weather Channel to begin with?
