    Move to the desert.Keep away from water.


    Seriously tho.There is nothing wrong with a healthy fear of sharks.Keep on fearing them.You will live longer.

    Be afraid, be very afraid. I went to the coast this summer and wouldn't go in past my knees (and I hurried back, too).....

    What makes you think that you should NOT fear sharks? They bite you know.

    Don't go near shark infested waters..  How about that??

    History channel says 'punch 'em in the nose' sharks don't like being punched in the nose.

    Never eat one whole! :)

    The only sharks we get around here are the human kind, and we have plenty of them to avoid.

    well to overcome a fear you need to keep subjecting your self to it.

    Look at pictures.

    Learn about them about their life cycles in books.

    Then watch them on a tv documentary.

    Then go to see them in a sea life centre, speak to the keepers.

    Sharks are very frightened of humans and will only attack you if they think you are a seal. They are endangered and are being killed off at an alarming rate, unfortunately films like Jaws do not help with that myth.

    remember IT IS EXTREMELY RARE to get bitten by a shark or for a human to be in contact with them unless you live in Australia.

    Oh...be very afraid. 


    I hear they just love gorgeous women.

    Nuttin' wrong with a good nap,Mills! :)
    I love history, so these books are a joy to read.

    I have such fear of a certain creature that I cannot look at it in books or on the TV. It doesn’t really interfere with my life. However, I wish I didn’t the phobia. It keeps me from taking walks in the forest.


    I don’t know anyone who has this creature for a pet but I have had neighbors who keep them ... or one.


    I’ve lived by the ocean most of my life. I wade in the water I’ve never come across a shark.

    millie111

    Brave its..Brave:-)..(I fear water which I can`t see what lurks beneath..I`m still trying to rationalize whether it`s a fear or a phobia...It kind of makes sense that you fear the unknown..so I`ll take it as a fear;-Z..Give me a swimming pool any day)!:-)

    My psychiatrist says that it’s simple old fear if it doesn’t change your life drastically. It’s a phobia (or mental disorder) if it changes your life. My dad was terrified of dark water. I guess we all have our problems. :/
    millie111

    Yeah Its...I`d say mine was a mild fear..I could jump in a canal or dive into the sea if I had to..just not hugely keen on the idea!:-0lol!

    Sharks are nowhere near as dangerous as women.

    Dardaigh

    And you conquered your fear of them to marry one. How very brave of you. (Your negativity-of -women needle is stuck on the record, Nom.)
    nomdeplume

    Yes, but I am terrified of them.
    Dardaigh

    Then you are obviously attracted to the wrong kind of women. You can't have it both ways. ;)

    Methinks Plume's feather's done been plucked, Mills. ;)

    MOVE TO KANSAS

    SHARKS WILL BE THE END OF US!


    Just kidding!


    Sharks are just a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Modern sharks are classified within the clade Selachimorpha (or Selachii), and are the sister group to the rays. However, the term "shark" has also been used for extinct members of the subclass Elasmobranchii outside the Selachimorpha, such as Cladoselache and Xenacanthus. Under this broader definition, the earliest known sharks date from even more than 420 million years ago. Since that time, sharks have diversified into over 470 species. They range in size from the small dwarf  lantern shark (Etmopterus perryi), a deep sea species of only 17 centimetres (6.7 in) in length, to the whale shark (Rhincodon typus), the largest fish in the world, which reaches approximately 12 metres (39 ft). Despite its size, the whale shark feeds only on planktonsquid, and small fish by filter feeding. Sharks are found in all seas and are common down to depths of 2,000 metres (6,600 ft). They generally do not live in freshwater although there are a few known exceptions, such as the bull shark and the river shark, which can survive in both seawater and freshwater.

    Well researched answer. I expect to see more of you around here.....

    learn about them. Get to know them it is your choice to go into the water if u want to meat a shark. Get to know them so maybe if u know about them u won't  be so scared. my decsion is not to go in the water i like them but i don't want to be in their digestive system!!!

    millie111

    I wouldn`t want to hang out with them..or get friendly with them personally :-z..Sometimes fear is a signal that we need to be aware of the dangers of a situation!...It`s not the same as a "phobia"...a phobia is an irrational fear which with help and therapy can often be successfully be eradicated!

    Hands up who wants to go swimming with sharks?!;-)..Well that`s a surprise!:-))
