Why a boy? Why not a girl? Why does it have to be faster than a shark?

Sharks are specialized to move fast in the water. Humans aren't.

until one of these facts change, we'll continue to be a potential meal.

Step one: Steal a boy

Step two: Tie a rope around his feet

Step three: Attach rope to boat

Step four: Stick it to nature.

Unless evolution takes a strange turn, a boy/girl will never be able to swim faster.

Don't any of you watch movies? Just puch the shark as it swims towards you at a mean rate of 4 miles per hour, just like Lara Croft did in Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life

That movie... uggh. But Angelina Jolie is so amazingly hot ::dodges rotten bananas:: and made the movie entirely watchable

I dont think it is possible my dudes....sharks never stop swimming....they have to constantly swim to have a sufficient of oxygen...or whatever those fuckers breathe?...or they die.......so if sharks are built to swim...live in the water....and are never supposed to stop...you would think that they would be superior swimmers to any other living creatures on the face of the planet?

I think a fairer question would be, when will a shark be born that can out run a human . . . .

There was a story once about a bloke who outswam a shark, but he never lived to tell the tail . . . so busy looking behind at the shark he swam straight into a propeller . . . *laughing insanely* . .

This is one of the great questions pondered by our finest minds.

As the ancient prophecy foretold there would be a boy born that would swim faster than a shark. To this day the cryptic passage has fired the imaginations of erudite scholars around the world. Was it a human boy? Would it be in water or some other substance? A race of stamina and endurance or raw speed? What breed of Shark? Truly one of the greatest mysteries of our time.

Oddly enough, if I remember correctly, that's exactly what you're supposed to do when a shark attacks you, punch it (either on the tip of the nose or on the gills, don't remember which). Granted, this probably won't be some laid back slow swimmin' shark.

Jesus does what he wants, when he wants.
If Jesus wants to outswim a shark, then Jesus is going to outswim a god damned shark!

killer sharks have been videotaped sitting still on the bottom of the ocean, amazing, but true.

IT's true about the Killer Sharks sitting still on the bottom of the ocean.

Jesus isn't worried about the sharks. The sharks aren't dumb enough to bite a religious entity.

Or there might have been current flowing in the water.. Hence they could breath the oxygen in water... And you punch the shark either in the eyes and gills (best) or in the nose (good). And I would think with the advent of genetic engineering, scientists with way the hell too much time, and slower sharks, IT CAN BE DONE!
