When Sharks Attack Humans Trespass

In honor of Gilbert Arenas, it was Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. An interesting fact I learned while watching one of the specials: On average, 4 humans are killed by sharks a year while 40 million sharks are killed by humans a year! Enough with the shark fin soup, Yao! There was also a really interesting documentary about the USS Indianapolis, which was sunk off the Philippine coast during WWII, and the subsequent shark attacks on the survivors. It's called Ocean of Fear: The Worst Shark Attack Ever, and it's worth a watch.
