Probably a silly phobia, but there it is.

FAIL!

Mock threads belong in the lounge only!

You had me scared too for a minute there... seeing as how I'm gonna be snorkeling in the Bahamas almost a month from today...

Avid diver here, the only things you need to be worried about in the Bahamas are Barracuda, Tiger sharks and a pissed off Stingray.

...and they can erase your credit cards. So make sure you never give your numbers to one...cuz they are very slippery.

I was actually about 5 feet away from a rather large Barracuda in the Bahamas this past December... He was just chilling out, so I wasn't dumb and didn't get any closer... He could have taken my arm off, but I would have had to punch him in the face as he tried... ;)

I was about 20 feet above a stingray too, but he was just chilling out too... so I left him alone...

Didn't see any sharks though, but I have read about the Tiger sharks they have down there... Hopefully, I won't be getting too close to any of those any time soon... I hate sharks!

Oh, back in December, I was pretty close to a lionfish too... They're awesome looking, but can hurt you a little bit, I hear...

I had a Tiger shark take a taste test of one of my fins before, exciting if nothing else!

Nothing scarier than a tiger and a shark combined. Except, of course, moray eels this season.

I had a British friend tell me to beware of the 'eels, but he was a Duke fan.

What I fear about them most is the temperment I have heard they have... Very ill tempered and ready to attack anything that moves at times...

Plus, it doesn't help that I was eaten by a motherfugin' shark this one time...

Yes they are rather ill tempered I got right back up to the top and in the boat after it happened. Never had any issues with Barracuda outside of them just following you around under the water.
