    And forget the sharks. The jellyfish will get you first. Then someone will have to pee on your leg.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Not that bad a deal if your into that sort of thing.

    Not that I am or anything...
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    That's always been my fear being in the ocean water. The thought
    of swimming into a school of jelly fish scares me more than sharks.

    Siesta Key was honored with the first spot in best US beaches. Haven't ventured out to the West Coast yet, with the exception of Tampa. I really want to visit Sanibel Island, maybe this year.

    I did do it once when I was at Keesler. Went out to Ship Island to do some fishing with another guy in my class. We saw a sand bar about 20 yards off shore on the Gulf side of the island, and decided to head out there so we could fish off the other side of it. We were not thinking at all on this... after we swam out there, the second we step food on the bar, we kick up a big ass school of rays, luckily none of us got stung. We stand around out there for a few minutes before we realize "this place is usually swarming with Sand Sharks, maybe this wasn't such a good idea." So we decide to swim back in, and end up going right through a school of jelly fish, again with both of us somehow not getting stung at all. It was pretty crazy.

    I've never had a fear of sharks. I've been around boats all my life and had my own for a few years. Also belonged to a boat club up until a year ago. I prefer swimming in the ocean, than say a pool. I usually swim offshore, anchor the boat, and stay out with or without a lounger. I don't wear jewelry when I swim (sharks are supposedly attracted to shiny metal).

    Once, I was out towards the rim of gulf stream, about 5 miles from shore that afternoon, fishing with my brother, easy to catch mahi mahi in that area and a family of sharks circled the boat for hours...they may have been curious about the music or just waiting for bait...but at that time, I didn't go into the water. The current was too strong, so I wouldn't have jumped in anyway. A strong rip current is scarier than sharks when you're swimming in deep water. A depth of 100 feet is my limit.

    Deep water freaks me out as well. I can stand being out on boats in 300ft or deeper water, but when I think about it, it's almost a primal fear. It's like looking into the abyss, a deep dark pit that you know you'd never escape from if you had the misfortune to fall into.

    I think I'd have a complex by the end of my career if I had joined the Navy.
