Post Hallelujah Its Raining Sharks
http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/07/28/deniers-2

This article exposes the alarmist myth that climate change is causing sharks to be sucked up into the atmosphere from where they fall alive and biting in Utah, and that fossil fuels and big American cars are causing this surprising phenomenon.

Nothing to worry about. Raining sharks have happened on a cyclical basis caused by the sun, and are not really very dangerous. Especially if you have a gun concealed in your underpants.

Well if they are great whites, that would be a problem in Australia, as they are protected, and could crawl into your underpants without worrying about being shot.

The Australian Crawl is an old fashioned name for freestyle swimming (as well as a great rock band). Sharks descending from the heavens would not so much crawl as plummet.

But seriously, sharks are not sneaky enough to crawl into anyone's underpants. The climate change shark issue looks to be more of a problem in Utah than in Australia, and in Utah they are out and proud regarding concealed weaponry, so those sneaky climate change varmints wouldn't last two seconds.

I think it was Hermann Göring who said when he heard mention of climate change he reached for his revolver, or something like that.

This all sounds a little fishy to me.

Post Re: Hallelujah Its Raining Sharks
This topic seems a little more relevant since Sharknado 2 just aired this weekend on Syfy channel. I actually find it hard to believe anyone is in danger of sharks falling from the sky. This is coming from a guy who has written two storm related stories dealing with a zombie twister and a cat furnado. With the strange weather the past years, I guess anything is possible.
