All Wet

These two are close relatives of the manta ray I met last Sunday somewhere right about here, many thanks to Byrd and Kim with Ed Robinson's. Plenty of gray sharks too, hanging out over here. Forbes, with a straight face, calls scuba diving one of "The World's Most Dangerous Sports," right up there with base jumping, street luging, bull riding and big wave surfing (uh, ok, guess I'll be throwing myself off the top of tall buildings any day now). For yet more aquatic sensationalism, it's tough to beat Celebrity Shark Week starting this Sunday on the Discovery Channel (join Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath and others as you "watch great whites on TV, and track attacks online," and play the "Ring of Death game").
