Happy Shark Week Everyone

This week is The Discovery Channel's Shark Week.

When I was 8 years old I watched Jaws with my family. It absolutely terrified me.

I wasn't an easily scared child and I often relished watching B-grade horror movies with my Dad. The 1980s version of the Blob and Critters were two of my cheesy, gory favourites. The more gore, humour and jump factor, the better.

But I couldn't stand Jaws. I spent the entire time with my head buried in a book. Life of Mammals I believe.

A few months ago I started a 30 before 30 list, which I'm still to complete, and on it I wrote "swim with sharks". I think it's my only fear I'm yet to conquer.

If anyone has any info I'd greatly appreciate it!
