      Yea and people will think male fire fighters from PA are name calling morons that have to resort to using elementary school tactics to get a point across. Psycho huh? That's OK I have been called much worse by much better people. What I am saying (and you seem to keep missing the point) is that fatal attacks are on the rise again and that I choose not to go in the water...my choice. I never said DON"T GO IN THERE YOU WILL DIE...AAAAAHHH! So stop trying to make me out to be some hysteria driven nut...that is so not the case.

      My dad did nothing to provoke the attack...it was in Hawaii, where he lives, and he felt something tug his flipper, he didn't move because he was unsure of what it was, and after a few seconds he felt the tug let go and he turned to see the back end of a shark leaving the scene. From what I have read (again others may have read different info so don't start yelling at me again) many attacks are considered unprovoked to us but to the sharks you are in their water and therefore fair game. I suppose I can understand this. I am also glad he was OK.
      Never forget those who went before and sacrified to make us better and stronger as a fire service and a nation. 09-11-01 forever etched in time and our memories. God Speed Boys!

        Well HCTrouble, you don't seem to understand logical, non exaggerated points, so I chose to use an exaggerated point in order to prove a point. It all works.

        I never called you psycho, you're just making people think that you are. I didn't make you out to be a hysterical nut, you did that just fine on your own.

        Oh, and who ever said that I was male?

          OH MY GOD...RUN FOR YOUR LIVES...SAVE YOURSELF!!! REPORTS OF GUN TOTTING TURKEYS IS ON THE RISE!!!!!

          A Potosi, Mo., man who was showing off a turkey he thought he'd killed was shot in the leg when the wounded bird thrashed about in his car trunk and triggered a loaded shotgun.

          "Apparently, the turkeys are fighting back," said county Sheriff Ron Skiles.

          To make matters worse, it turned out that Larry Lands, around 40, and his son, Larry Jr., 16, were hunting a week before the start of the Missouri turkey season and will be fined, the sheriff said.

          According to the Associated Press, the accident occurred after Lands shot the turkey and put it in his car with the loaded shotgun. They drove to a neighbor's house to show off the bird.

          As the son pulled the turkey from the trunk it began struggling and one of its claws touched the trigger, the sheriff said. The shot went through the side panel of the car and into the elder Lands' leg.

          Lands was in satisfactory condition in a local hospital.

          Potosi is 50 miles southwest of St. Louis.

          THE TURKEYS ARE TRYING TO TELL US SOMETHING!! I THINK THEY'RE TRYING TO TELL US TO WATCH OUR BACKS THIS THANKSGIVING! GOBBLE, GOBBLE!!!

              PA I could care less if you are a he a she or a heshe. Don't matter to me a bit. And if anyone took me saying that I choose not to swim in the ocean as a hysterical cry then they need to have their head examined. It is a choice I make on my own and I don't tell anyone else they can't go into the water..I just don't like to go into the ocean. Big deal! So can we move on already?

                Well HC, you specifically called out male PA FF's, so evidently you do care. Go ahead move on, no one's stopping you. I moved on a long time ago. I was just making fun of your irrational decision, that's all.

                    I never said I didn't care if you were male or female. So what's your point? Oh, and calm down, there's no need to swear.

                    I thought you were moving on?

                      Who knows maybe the Sharks are trying to tell us something. Like if you come into my waters your fair game and I might just come after you for no other reason than the fact that your in the water. It's hard to say but, I'm sure at some point and time some Scientist somewhere will figure it out and tell everyone why they are doing this. Until then your guess is as good as mine. You never know someone here might figure it out and tell the rest of the world why this is happening.
