Seeing as how my give-a-damn is busted, and I just don’t have enough energy to write substantive content, I hereby announce a new I Know Things Series: Maybe I Can Help. I am always amazed at the stupid things the people struggle to figure out – and pay other people to figure out for them. Kinda like the official studies of why prisoners want to escape from prison. Really? You had to commission a study to work through that one? Maybe I can help….
The first installment comes from here: http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSN2634668020080526?sp=true. It seems that Mexico has a shark problem and the Mexican Navy is trying to help out. Fair enough – the ocean’s got a people eating shark, the Navy has guns (or harpoons or something that could kill a shark) – seems like a no brainer. But read to the last sentence: “The Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo government is consulting with experts to determine what could be causing the attacks.”
Maybe I can help: Hungry Sharks. Shoot em & move on.
