    Deathly Afraid!

    I cant even look at a picture of one without getting scared.  They look like they are smirking right before they wanna rip your arm or leg off!  Or worse!  I would not be sad if they were to become extinct.

    That's the technical term for an irrational fear of sharks. And I definitely have that. I like to think of myself as a very rational person...I have a degree in mathematics! But when it comes to sharks...I just can't seem to force myself to be rational. It doesn't matter what...

    It's My Dad's Fault, Really..
