UM "nursing" student bit by Nurse shark.These Sharks have altered behavior due to being fed by humans. I guess she thought it would be "cool" for her modeling career. Anyway glad she will be OK, could have been worse if they all teamed up on her.

    IG has created an environment where every woman thinks she's a model.   You already have self centered narcissistic people and now they have to have pictures and videos to show their "fans".    It has created a perfect storm of vanity and stupidity.

    I agree

    We're watching fireworks with some friends last week and I look over my buddy's GF is making an IG video saying "hey and everyone have a safe and happy 4th"....I think to myself "are you effing kidding me?  You don't have adoring fans, you're not a celebrity, who the hell are you talking to??!"   

    But that's where we are.   IG feeds the ego and lets anyone and everyone become "famous".

    IG?  I had to Google it:

    Ig (pronounced [ˈiːk]; formerly Studenec, German: Brunndorf[2]) is the largest settlement and the seat of the Municipality of Ig, central Slovenia.

    I honestly didn't know what IG was, either.

    Never been there.

    Does anybody think this is a good idea? I don't care if they are nurse sharks, the herd mentality can take over at anytime.

    Everybody thinks nurse sharks aren't dangerous.  Maybe they are the least dangerous shark, but that's like saying she is the cleanest hooker.

    Right on! Nurse sharks are carnivores, and some of them are bigger than me, that's all I need to know.

    That picture is stupidity in its purest form.

    One certain forum member still owes me $20 from a bet we made 10 years ago.  He swore that Nurse Sharks have no teeth.

    Didn't some girl in Boca last year mess with a nurse shark and get bitten?   She had to go to the hospital to have it taken off.   Mess with the nurse..you get the gurney

    No idiot I said they have small abrasive teeth, not sharp cutting teeth like other sharks.

    Another idiot friend of mine had one latch onto his thumb for a full 5 minutes. He was NOT cut in the least. Quite pissed that I couldn't stop laughing, but there was barely even an abrasion.

    So it was you....you're wrong a lot and I don't think you're supposed to call a forum member an "idiot".
    You don't really want to start that....do you?
    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway. nj

    I think that is a really bad idea. Whether they have teeth or not, should one of those sharks decide to latch on and head towards the bottom...unless you have a set of gills in your swim suit......you're screwed.
    It looks like one is checking the calf muscle for flavor and tenderness....

    The forum member he called an idiot is also his landlord, it wasn’t some random other member.

    yes the populace seems to keep making stupid people famous. Wish they would stop already.

    She is studying to be a nurse at University of Miami along with being an IG model.

    That should placate people.

    I remember back in 1975 a young woman stripped naked and went for a swim one night in the Atlantic. 
     What was left of her washed up on the beach the next day. 
     And the rest is history.  :#
