    Carry on as normal. You may get run over/cancer/fall down the stairs etc tomorrow.

    Although, they've stopped all diving except Ras M (AFAIK) which will be bedlam due to the volume.

    This aggressive but slow-moving fish dominates feeding frenzies, and is a danger to shipwreck or air crash survivors.
    Famed oceanographic researcher Jacques Cousteau described the oceanic whitetip as "the most dangerous of all sharks". Despite the greater notoriety of the great white shark and other sharks habitually found nearer the shore, the oceanic whitetip is responsible for more fatal attacks on humans than all other species combined, as a result of predation on survivors of shipwrecks or downed aircraft.

    Sounds fine.

    The whitetip poses a minimal threat to bathers or inshore sportsman, but a high risk for humans caught in the open ocean.

    I would - eat lots of garlic to be on the safe side.

    What I find amazing is the way Killer Whales avoid eating humans, mostly. They surely have no idea whether they are tasty or not, until they've tried one.

    Sharks usually go for things that look/act like a seal.

    As you appear to have the dimensions of an average pilot whale I think you'll be fine.

    Btw, when you're diving how much lead do you need?

    I understand a team of crack sea-anglers are furiously baiting their hooks as we speak, intent on capturing this fish. So it's probably prudent to wait until they catch it.

    But if you do go diving, and you do get eaten, the CUK membership will no doubt offer knowledgeable advice for negotiating the afterlife.

    It is way too cold for me to even contemplate the notion of diving. Well, the underwater sort anyway...........

    Obviously the mothers teach them whilst they are young.
    Have you never seen lions teaching the cubs how to stalk, then how to close in for the chase ?
    its the same with killer whales. they take their cubs to 'killer whale' hunting safari-lands and show them using lifelike miniatures what's good to eat

    either that, or they have 'race memory'. like a million years ago , one of my ancestors gave up drinking beer, so I avoid that type of stuff through instinct
