Alternative attractions at the world’s most shark-infested beaches

While it’s fun to watch the great whites fly through the air and chomp things to bits from the safety of a living room couch, none of us want to be on the receiving end of those fearsome saltwater smiles.

If you happen to find yourself vacationing at some of the world’s most shark-infested beaches, here are a few recommendations for nearby activities that will keep you out of watery harm’s way.

Here's the deal.  Those sharks didn't invade you! You went to their house, and they don't give permission to come visit. And it kind of pisses them off!  Sharks???  Admire their home from a distance, stay on the beach!

Just got done reading about a hiker killed in alaska by a bear while hiking in the wilderness,and just thought I'd add my two most important wildlife rues here also.

 1. Never go into the woods without your shotgun or .357 magnum.

 2. Never go into the ocean without a nuclear submarine.

If you live by these rules you will never be eaten alive by a shark or a bear.I promise!

1.  Stay out of the water.

2.  Go elsewhere for your vacation.

3.  Come to think of it there is no '3.'  1 and 2 cover just about everything!
