@tinamarie1974 A shark tried to eat me when I was diving near Isla San Pedro Mártir about 15 years ago. I guess it didn’t care for the way I kept grabbing it’s tail trying to get it to turn around for a picture.
@mehcuda67 It tried to make a snack of my forearm and got it’s teeth snagged up in my wetsuit. I wouldn’t so much say it bit me. It was more like it tore my arm with it’s teeth as it shook it’s head trying to get free. Unfortunately, once there’s blood in the water, wee peckish sharks tend to become bigger, hangrier sharks. So I spoiled the day of diving for everyone on the boat.
This is the scar circled in blue. You can see where his tooth made a nice clean incision in the middle, and the rough tears on each end going in opposite directions because the little bugger was shaking his head trying to get loose. I was more frightened by the prospect of going to the hospital in Guaymas than the shark wound.
@ruouttaurmind Well I guess you can go around saying that you won the battle with the shark - few can say that. That must have been scary and painful at the time. Salt water on a wound that big had to hurt.
@zachdecker Me too. Those guys didn’t care that they had a self-denigrating company name and that saying “I work at a mediocre corporation” was fraught with confusion and inefficiencies.
“mercatalyst” reminds me of early 2000’s website names where they tried really hard to sound cool super high-tech.
Right now it is a carbon copy of mediocre.com (where all tabs have been removed and the only live links are to the 4 sites) plus a few tabs on top. The mediocre forums are still there. At least just now.
Maybe they’re not making the actual merkins - maybe they’ve come up with a substance that gets pubic hair to grow artificially in sheets, i.e., a merkin catalyst…
Then they can wholesale the bolts of pubic hair to the merkin manufacturers.
@Thumperchick They certainly can! I’m all for suit-and-tied ladies for dress-up occasions, but as every-day work attire, ties suck for any gender of meerkatspokesanimals. I am, however, all for silk ties for the more annoying humans of either gender. Silk ties are strong and they are tied with a convenient slipknot. Just grab the bottom/inside tie and give it a hard yank, and it will have a wonderfully civilizing effect on the wearer, who will never again invade your personal space. In fact, if memory serves, the meer (not kat) mention of such a possible action often has the same effect, especially if the description is delivered in a conversational voice and followed by a smile. Or at least, MY description and smile had that effect. YMMV.
