    i find it interesting that people did not fully know about sharks back then and some people would think that maybe the same shark didnt attck 5 times.

    I understand that the shark is at fault but i still don’t think it was right for what people did to the shark, like hanging outside as if it was a prize.

    I find it funny that the two first guys to get bitten were both named Charles, (CHARLES Vansent, and CHARLES Bruder) and that the other two guys’ last names both started with a S (Stillwell, and Stanley). Coincidence? I think not.

    It’s be really funny if the shark did that on purpose, just to mess with us.

    But sharks don’t do that, OR DO THEY?

    XD
