did you know that the cast and crew of the movie Jaws became horrified at the results of their movie? fucking horrified at the mass hysteria they had caused

not only that, peter benchley regretted writing the original novel right up until his death, and spent his final years trying to raise awareness and reverse the impact jaws had on people’s perception of sharks, which his wife continues today

now there’s actual solid evidence that dicovery’s shark week is as garbage as I always thought it was

FUCK THIS SHIT.

I LOVE SHARKS, AND MARINE BIOLOGY, AND THIS EXCUSE OF A STRING OF DOCUMENTARIES THESE ASSHOLES ARE PUTTING OUT ARE FUCKING. SHIT.

THEY /FAKED PEOPLES DEATH/ TO TRY AND PROVE AND ANCIENT SHARK WAS ALIVE.

DO YOU KNOW HOW PUMPED I WAS TO POSSIBLY BE ALIVE ALONG SIDE MEGALODON? THAT WOULD BE EVERY MARINE BIOLOGISTS DREAM, BUT NO. THEY HAD TO GET PEOPLES HOPES UP AND CRUSH THEM FOR NO FUCKING REASON BECAUSE IT GOT THEM VIEWS.

FUCK DISCOVERY CHANNEL. FUCK SHARK WEEK. AND FUCK ALL THE ASSHOLES WHO MADE THIS BULLSHIT.

The ironic truth:Ever  since the movie, Jaws, people have had an  irrational fear of sharks.  The ironic truth is that humans are the ones  killing off all the  sharks. You’re more likely to die from lightning  strikes or falling  coconuts than sharks. There are only around 60 shark  attacks per year,  and only around 4 of those attacks are fatal. The  shark attacks are  usually accidents in which the shark mistakes a surfer  for a seal.  However, over 104,000,000 sharks are killed by humans every  year.Around  78 million of the 104 million dead sharks are  killed only for their  fins to be put into shark fin soup. The soup is a  popular dish in Asian  countries, and falsely believed to have health  benefits such as sex  life enhancement. Shark finning is the cruel act of  cutting off the  shark’s fins while it is still alive, then the still  living shark is  wastefully thrown back into the ocean to die a slow and  painful death.  Can you imagine the agony of someone chopping off your  arms and legs  and leaving you to bleed to death just so they can have a  make believe  better sex life?The irony of the situation is that  due to all  the pollution we dump into the ocean, the sharks and other  apex  predators like dolphins and whales have accumulated a dangerous  level  of toxins such as mercury (this process called biomagnication is  not as  bad with fish on the lower food chain so we can still eat those).   Eating animals like sharks can cause mercury poisoning, which will not   only cause nerve damage and eventual retardation, but also decrease your   sexual performance. Why it matters to YOU:Sharks   are an important part of our ecosystem. They have been around for 430   million years, and that time, all of the ocean’s life have evolved   around sharks. If sharks go extinct, the fragile balance of the ocean   will be thrown into chaos. Without sharks to eat fish on the lower food   chain, those fish will breed out of control and eat all the plankton   that’s needed to produce oxygen. Unlike some fish that lays   thousands of eggs every year, sharks only produce 2-20 pups per year. If   we catch them at the same rate as other fish we eat, they will go   extinct. What worse is that people don’t even eat the shark itself, just   the fins because they believe it will help their sex life. How you can help:Shark   finning is technically banned in many countries, but there is no real   effort to stop the illegal trade of shark fins. However, just by simply   spreading awareness about the toxic truth behind shark fin soup, we  can  help bring down the demand for shark fins which will ultimately  break  down the illegal trade. If people are educated about the fact  that shark  fin soup doesn’t actually make them better at sex, and that  it can  actually poison them, then they will no long want to buy it. A   simple way to spread awareness is to post this picture on your own dA,   blog, or website along with the info above. You have my full  permission  repost this drawing anywhere you want. Also tweet and  facebook it to all  your friends and family. The more people who knows,  the more difference  we can make!
