Hey, Give That Back!: Shark Steals Photographer's Camera

July 27, 2012


Because it's Friday and my brain checked out yesterday (plus two books from the library and never returned them!), this is a video of a shark stealing an underwater photographer's camera in the Bahamas. Personally, I would have punched that shark in the nose. Of course, it looks like the rig was just sitting on the seafloor, so you can't really blame the shark. It's not like he wrestled it away from the guy or anything. Finders keepers -- that's the rule of the ocean. Back me up, Aquaman. Aquaman? "Give me a kiss first." Aquaman! Not in front of all these people.

Hit the jump for the video.

    The shark just wants to make a YT video. :D

    could probably feel the electromagnetic field the camera was generating and got curious

    WELL DID HE GET IT BACK OR WHAT?! Also, how else are you going to take pictures of yourself if you don't set the timer and leave the camera on the ocean floor?

  • NOM NOM n_n so cute!

    Just thought I would share this with everyone...

    Today I ran a standard series for one of my assays and got back an R-squared of .9999. This probably means nothing to most of the population, but if anywhere I would want to share this, it would be at Geekologie. This is like pitching a perfect game for a researcher.

    And good for the shark.

  • But really who cares about your standards, how did the unknowns look? Did your data fit your hypothesis?

    Not sure about the unknowns yet. I am putting this standard series together as positive controls for an assay of carbonyl content in BSA. Hopefully the data jives with the hypothesis (exposure to metals and hypoxia induces oxidative stress, etc... ).

    Also, the .9999 was only for a Bradford assay using guanidine HCl as the assay media, but that is still well above any R^2 I have ever had before (I can usually get between .98 and .990 for that particular assay).

  • That is an awesome r-squared, comment made my day, except my r-squared was around .45 today.

  • I think it just hates the paparazzi.
    And you should punch sharks in the gills not on the nose.

    Damn sharks, they are so cute.
