Now? Not so much. It didn’t take much research for me to find that Discovery and Shark Week lied to scientists to get them to appear in their "documentaries" and edited their interviews to make it sound like the scientist were hunting fairy tale animals like Monster Hammerhead, Zombie Shark, and Sharkaggeddon.Good-bye science! Hello ratings!
I figure if Shark Week can spread science lies, then so can I! The only difference here is I'm doing it for fun and I'm flat out telling you that I'm making this stuff up (with two minor exceptions.)
