Lies and damned lies.
The lamestream media is the absolute worst. Incredibly the worst. Everything President Donald J. Trump says it is plus lots more and now, like him, I feel personally aggrieved. Personally targeted and harmed by new scurrilous, vindictive reporting that suggest taking innocent and beautiful self portraits, or selfies, is more dangerous than getting eaten by a shark, be it Great White, Bull, Tiger, Hammerhead or other.
Equally infuriating and triggering.
Because we surfers, we ocean pioneers, know the risks, the dangers every time we paddle out. Feel the terror but does the media care?
It’s “agenda” is on full display but we must turn to Jacksonville, Florida’s local NBC affiliate for more.
The Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care in India found that 259 people worldwide died in 137 selfie-related accidents between 2011 and 2017, compared to just 50 people killed by sharks.
And a new survey found that 41% of us have already risked our safety in pursuit of a selfie.
While there might be more ladies taking selfies in general, the men are more likely to take risks, according to a poll conducted by the smartphone case company Case24.com.
The company’s survey found 61% of males would accept the challenge of a cliff-edge photo, compared to 38% of females.
Like sharks, cliffs appear to favor men but back to the issue at hand. Jacksonville, Florida’s local NBC affiliate if you can even believe and, as you know, Jacksonville is very close to New Smyrna which is, in turn, the shark attack capital of the world.
The shark attack capital of the world.
It’s a conspiracy against us and, as such, no surfing is recommended for the next two weeks until everything shakes out.
More as the story develops.
