This is a big deal in Oregon because when you take away the agua, you don’t get a nice, flat plain of sand. You get mud. Black, stinking, quicksand-esque, soul-sucking mud. People have to be rescued. Make that idiots. Idiots have to be rescued.

A sneaky way to die

by allthoughtswork

A mere six inches of water can knock you off your feet and once you’re face down in the surf, there’s nothing to stop you being washed out to Japan like a bloated log.

PS: That water averages 52 degrees Fahrenheit. Happy Memorial Day, beach-goers.

What happens when you expose a lot of succulent flesh to a hungry shark?

by allthoughtswork

Answer: Lunch.  [WARNING: blood]

Let’s be very clear: This was not a shark “attack.” This was a shark doing shark things. It’s a shark. That’s the open ocean. Sharks are hungry and opportunistic and they want to live, just like you.

If someone opened a warm cardboard box of fresh, steaming pizza in front of your grumbling stomach and said, “Want a slice?” you’d go after it like a Great White after a harbor seal.

Stay in Starbucks, lady. You don’t get this whole nature thing at all.
