Sharks don't eat humans.

If they did, it's because they didn't know you were human.

Why is a bear any better? You're more likely to be eaten by a bear than a shark.

Sharks are beautiful creatures.

Honestly, I hate sharks. They are the worst animals in the world, I am convinced. There is nothing more terrifying being attacked by a shark while you splash around in your floaties, helpless. It's sure sad that animals are becoming extinct, but sharks are really nothing more than human eating monsters. This ad doesn't respect the feelings of those who have been eaten by sharks, or the feelings of people who just hate them, like I do. Maybe put a picture of a bear or something, at least you can get away from those.

Wow, how many people do you know that have actually been attacked by sharks/killed by sharks? You're an incredibly ignorant individual that doesn't deserve to be allowed to comment on here, and even if it was a "joke", it was tasteless in any aspect. Go get eaten by sharks.

Need I comment on the stupidity of you calling him ignorant and then wishing death upon him? Even if it was a "Joke", it was tasteless in any aspect. Go witness your entire family slowly dying of cancer before you hang yourself.

Wow, dude "go witness your entire family dying slowly of cancer before you hang yourself"? I'm not even sure I need to comment on this because it's so obviously horrible, I hope you feel bad about yourself for saying this...

"but sharks are really nothing more than human eating monsters" This has got to be one of the most naive things I have ever heard. Humans are responsible for the deaths of over 100,000,000 sharks a year and do eat them - sharks kills on average 12 humans per year, none of them eaten, human deaths are normally bitten by mistake and not targeted by the sharks.

Sharks are the ocean's apex predators, keeping eco-systems in balance - we are more reliant on them than they are on us.

Before posting ignorant statements about how much you hate sharks and that they are human eating monsters - do some research!

Guest
Guest's picture

you obviously know nothing and are typing based exclusively off emotions since only an average of 50-70 people worldwide get attacked by sharks and under ten die from it. They also play a enormous role/niche in the marine ecosystem which is being undermined by destructive, corporate human actions.

You do realize that more people die every year by wild pigs than they do by sharks. You really are ignorant, seeing as you are willing to care for any other animal except sharks.

Actually, skippy, sharks attack people less than dogs do. Less than donkeys. Less than toilet seats.
The only reason they bite is because you're swimmin around in their home. If some strange creatur was walking around in your house, I'm 100% sure you would want it the fuck out of there.
If you look at the facts, sharks don't kil humans anywhere near as often as most animals.
In face, there is a public beach in africa where great white sharks are extremely common swimming with the people, but no attacks have ever been recorded. The sharks know the humans as non-threatening creatures, so they leave them alone. We however, see an animal with teeth, freak the fuck out, and decide to kill all of them. Mm, we're smart.

but how does that respect the feelings of people that have been attacked or eaten by bears? Bear attacks happen more frequently than shark attacks. The concept of being killed by a shark is only frightening because you might be inept at swimming. Really, anything that can kill you is something you should stay away from, because neither a shark nor a bear will harm you unprovoked. It's because they have a case of the noms.

More people are attacked and killed by bears than by sharks each years.
More sharks are killed by humans than humans by sharks.
So many stupid humans like you talk about things they don't know anything about. Shut up and try to get some information before opening your stupid mouth.
This ad is brilliant !

Guest

Did you know that Sharks kill fewer than 4 humans on average each year, while humans kill about 100 million sharks annually. That you're more likely to be killed by a lightning strike, bee sting, falling coconut or falling vending machine than a shark bite? And that's just the number of sharks we kill per year. You don't even want to know the figure for animals in general. But yes by all means just because you "hate" sharks and they are the "worst" animals and they are "human eating monsters" who cares if they become exstinct? Please get informed before making such ignorant comments.

You, my friend, are an idiot. Ignorant of the facts. yes, the idea of a shark attack is scary, but highly unrealistic. The truth is, you are more likly to be killed by a falling coconut. Human eating monsters? really? Sharkes fill a valuble nitch in the oceans eco-system and food chain. And humans are the last thing on their mind when it comes to a food sourse. And if knew anything about shark attacks you would know that most are accidental and only consist of a single "test" bite.

Guest
Guest's picture

actually more people die in bear attacks than shark attacks. and sharks are not mean they just mistake you for a nother animal like a dolphin or a sea turtle.

Guest
Guest's picture

Well when you enter the sharks domain you are no longer at the top of the food chain. The shark is not a human eating monster, its a animal simply trying to survive like us. We have put ourselves above all over animals simply because we think far to highly of ourselves.

honestly i hate people like you that bash on sharks. im from hawaii and from what it seems like i know a lot more about sharks than youll ever know. i have had friends that have been attacked by sharks and i still dont hate them. that is because sharks do not purposefully attack humans. sharks have very poor eye sight and when they see you splashing around in your gay ass floaties in there mind they see a nice fat plump seal splashing around in the water. when they attack they open there jaws and close there eyes. this is to protect there eyes. sharks actually hate the taste of humans and once they bite into a human they immediately turn around and leave the human alone. somethin like 90+% of shark attack victims live after they get bit. and also they are more than just ""human eating monsters" they eat the dead corpses in the sea and without sharks, our ocean would be full of dead whales and other sea life. and also sharks dont jus attack people on sight. my dad runs a swim race and there have been many occasions where sharks have come inches within swimmers without taking a bite. and id rather swim in a pool of sharks than be in a room full of bears. because believe it or not bears do attack humans and kill them, waay more than sharks. bears will attack if you come to close to them or there cubs, and if a bear comes after you theres no hope. he will keep attacking untill the threat is gone. and you would be that threat and the only way youd be gone is if you were a lifeless corpse. a shark will stop attacking after one bite.

this... make no sense. If you hate sharks for killing humans, then by default you also hate humans.. The number of deaths by shark pales in comparison to death by human. Sharks kill becasue of instinct. People kill because they want to. Just because you hate something, doesn't justify its extinction, and if you think so, - i hope you go extinct.
