Jammers have many interests. So I'm launching a new blog category in the Jam Room called "Freedom Friday" in which I'll talk about a few other relevant things: sports, entertainment, beer, uh... sharks.... Whatever.
Since I started watching the Olympics, I've been keeping "What have we learned" lists every two years as a little exercise in nonsense and publishing them wherever I happen to be hanging out -- MySpace, my blog, shaved into the side of Dennis Rodman's head. (They mostly concern things that only concern me, like the phrase "The Russians came to battle today.")
This year's list amused me so much I posted it here, so "What Have We Learned?" is a good example of a sub-category you might see here on randomly selected Fridays. You may have also recently witnessed me lamenting my long lost friend Pete's Wicked Ale. Because beer and music and writing and being a total fool, in general, all go hand-in-hand-in-foot-in-stupid-mouth.
Now that you've seen inside my brain (and are most likely in tears), here we go...
What Have We Learned From Shark Week 2012?
- 'Shark biologist' is a thing
- Most shark biologists' days end when, as expected, a camera gets eaten
- Sharks are older than dinosaurs
- And they were even more terrifying back then
- Half the stuff from Jaws is fake
- Half the stuff from Jaws is NOT FAKE!!
- Sharks don't necessarily want to eat you... but they still will
- A shark's diet is adaptive to its environment (meaning it will eventually learn to like you if you keep showing up)
- South African sharks are the only sharks that can jump
- But that's because California's sharks are much, much bigger
- Sharks are territorial
- Sharks are 80% muscle
- Sharks are beyond seeing or hearing you -- they sense your vibrations...... man
- Sharks can get pretty angry if you mess with them
- And yet we are constantly messing with them during Shark Week
I look forward to next time.
And so do the sharks...
