Today in news that will make you feel utterly inferior, we head to Australia, where a woman swimming in a rock pool happened upon a shark, casually picked it up and returned it to the ocean. Let's pause there to watch the video.
OK now that we've digested, a couple of questions:
1.) Is this a common thing in Australia where people swimming in pools occasionally bump into sharks? If so, why would anyone buy a bathing suit?
1A.) Are the sharks ever like, "Hey, are you going to use the lap lane? If not, I'd like to bust out a quick 50."
2.) What are the odds that this sequence happened to be caught on video? "Hey get some footage of me in the pool. It's a pretty spot, and I just might bump into a shark, then LIFT IT OVER MY HEAD WITH MY BARE HANDS!"
OK, technically this was an "ocean pool" adjacent to the sea, so it was a slightly more probable encounter, than in, say, your brother's inflatable above-ground thing. Nonetheless, it's fair to say most of us would lack the same level of poise and would, most likely, freak the F out.
Then again, turns out the woman in question, Melissa Hatheier, is a real estate agent, so, you know, (insert joke about fellow predatory species here).
