NEWS BREAK : The World’s Most Dangerous Beach

Most Dangerous Beach: New Smyrna Beach, Florida

 
(Black Tip Sharks)

More than a million people sun, swim, and surf at this Atlantic Ocean beach every year, in spite of the fact that it is the leading spot for shark attacks. There were 21 incidents in 2008, almost half of the total number of shark attacks in the world. Swimmers flock to the 13-mile white sand beach for its warm waters which, unfortunately, also draw black tip and spinner sharks. The majority of attacks are against surfers, which sharks occasionally mistake for turtles, but that doesn’t mean swimmers and waders are immune from danger—they account for 36 percent of attacks. The Florida Program for Shark Research supports the punch-the-shark-in-the-nose method of escape, but if that fails, recommends that victims claw at its eyes and gills.

Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
