    Hi everyone!

    Maybe I'm not new on AE but I'm looking for new friends. Anyobody? Anywhere? Just be chatty and nice. Something about me? Ugh... the hardest part... so I'm scientist and a big nerd but I think that's so easy to talk with me about everything. If you want to get know me better feel free to PM me. Oh... I've forgotten. English isn't my first language but I'm trying to learn :D

    Cool, do you work as a biologist?

    I actually only did my undergrad in biology but still enjoy marine bio as a hobby. Im just amazed with sharks and really got into marine invertebrates, too.

    Awesome I watched a great documentary about an autopsy on a great white shark they are so complicated, they have really hard eyeballs don't they it's wierd very interesting though. I think I would have a meltdown if I ever saw one when I was at a beach :)

    Cool, I've not really looked into biotechnology before is it like nanotechnology?

    What was the documentary called? I'd love to check it out. Haha I'm from southern california so I'm used to the occasional shark sighting and beach warning, I've actually swam with a shark before...by accident.

    It's called inside nature's giants, they do autopsies on animals that have died naturally it's really interesting they also did a sperm whale one I think, that got beached in Ireland Not sure what season the shark one one tho

    Oh wow was it a big shark? Im not sure they are so common off the UK coast but my step dad works on an oil rig in the Timor sea, he sent me a video and there are 100 of them just circling the rig each day think they are tiger sharks it's terrifying :p

    What a rush it must be to be surrounded by tiger sharks!

    Surfing's great, fun way to maintain a tan and just enjoy beach time with friends :)

    For those of us on the continent where the great white lives, the only thrill when a shark is in the water is to get the hell out of there!

    I think I'd suck at surfing my general everyday balance is terrible dread to think what I'd be like on a board :p

    Yeah they sometimes feed the tiger sharks with milk bricks or something that have been in the freezer they go mental for it apparantly not sure if it's healthy for them :)
