Cancel NBCs Shark Hunters

Usually not a big fan of petitions, but this one seems to have some legs and as a results some advertisers such as Allstate have pulled from NBCs show Shark Hunters.  Please go ahead and sign here.  While I have not seen the show, cannot imagine anything good coming out of it.

Sinus Torture

In the Bahamas, Green Turtle Cay - image not being able to dive more than two feet without feeling like your head is going to blowup and your eyes popping out of your skull.  It has been a tease having the reefs in the backyard and not being able to go out and play.

Taking sinus medicine and trying to clear cavities with saltwater to no avail.  On the bright side, I have some time to get over the infection.  On the not so bright side we have been stuck eating pasta for the last three days.

And to top it off the locals have told us the the reefs are being overfished...

Discovery Shark Week 2014

Back in the late 80's through most of the 90s and early 2000s I was excited around this time to be able to watch Shark Week...but for the last 10 years it has been one disappointing season after another.  It seems like this year will not be any better - the promos have been horrible, the stunts a joke, and the rolling of tiger sharks has no value what-so-ever.

While I will probably record the episodes - I will just skim through them, hoping that I may actually be pleasantly surprised by one or two episodes.

Found this article on USA Today thanks to David Shiffman - highly recommend following him on Twitter - he is calling out all the misinformation and bullshit that Discovery has been spewing out. 

When will something good come out again on the screen about sharks?
