I've only watched "Jaws" a few times in my life, but as supernatural and evil as that shark is, the fact remains that people have been eaten by sharks that swim in for a nice buffet at the public beach, facing not a lake but rather the ocean/sea.
With the exception of areas where there simply aren't any sharks, how can anyone dare to swim in a tropical location or where there can be sharks?
I don't get it. The thought of getting those horrible jaws into your flesh and being dragged under water and away and killed in the most gruesome manner possible while desperately gasping for air at the same time makes my skin crawl.
It's such a frightening thought to me that I just could never swim in such a beach, or surf, or even walk out in the water beyond a certain point of deepness.
Yet people seem to do just that. How can they possibly be sure that no sharks will go there today? A life guard spotting a fin isn't going to have time to evacuate the entire beach from people -- and that's if they do spot it!
