Given Twitter is in its not so publicized Follow a Shark Rennaissance.*

Let's show our favorite apex predator some love and positive attention, no?

*I follow the official Twitter feeds of over 20+ real world (tagged/tracked) sharks.

@Roberta,
I'm more of a hypocritical enabler. I can't swim (and don't plan on every learning). I want to see how many other people would actually hug a shark or two. Wink

@tsarstepan,
Or bump into a sea urchin, step on an almost invisible sting ray, or get enveloped by a swarm of jelly fish?

@roger,
You are bringing down beach tourism with all this sort of publicity.

@Sturgis,
Yeah. I think I'll spot the Chris Christie out on the beach. That'll get rid of the crowds.

Let's assume for a second that I was willing to hug a shark. I like sharks. Do you know what a schlep it is to get to the beach? Maybe an hour on the subway and then a walk. I did this in my youth. Today. Fuggedaboudit.

Now let's assume that I manage to get to the beach. What kind of guarantee do I have that a shark will be there? If I'm gonna do some hugging, I wanna know that the hugee will be there.

Life is not easy.

@dlowan,
My dad was bitten by a shark in the Pacific Ocean, just north of the San Francisco area. They were in a crew that had caught it - it was already dead, I think I remember him telling that, but the mouth closed on his hand..

That would have been in the early or mid nineteen twenties. I didn't see the scar until more decades later.
