How Many Sharks Are Killed Per Hour? This Graphic Will Shock You (INFOGRAPHIC)

How Many Sharks Are Killed Per Hour? This Graphic Will Shock You (INFOGRAPHIC)

Commented Mar 29, 2013 at 17:36:15 in Green

“You just don`t get it do you! Shark finning for shark fin soup and trophy hunting for sport has damn near decimated the shark population and you think it`s junk science! Don`t you see that if the sharks go extinct other species will too due to overpopulation! Sharks keep the oceans in check, if one animal in an ecosystem is destroyed, sooner or later everything else goes too! If you don`t believe this article just look on the internet for yourself. Do your own research. Watch the graphic scenes I have about what the Chinese do to millions of sharks all for a disgusting $50.00 a bowl of soup. And of course thats not even touching on the thousands more that are killed each year merely for the sheer love of killing and for bragging rites. Look it all up on youtube if you have any doubts!”

“Maybe you ought to take what is likely your advice to the United States when it comes to war, oil and other issues and heed it yourself. And, that is, stop meddling. And, I'm getting tired of hearing this meme "if one animal in an ecosystem is destroyed, sooner or later everything else goes too". Really? Do you have some actual proof of this or, are you just guessing. You know how many animals have been removed from the ecosystem since time began and...guess what? We're still here, the planet hasn't exploded and the sun didn't fall out of the universe.”

“Bicycle riders should have to pay a tax.They use the roads too don`t they(Slowing us all down doing it)! We as motorists should not have to pay for road construction by ourselves if we`re not the only ones using it! We can`t go on bike trails with our cars yet they can go on our roads, that`s just wrong!!! I hate cyclist and believe it`s about time they start paying their fair share! Furthermore cyclists need to understand that they are no better than anyone else out there and that they need to obey the rules of the road more and pay for it as well or stay off it, it`s that simple!”

“This lady (And I use this term loosely) is a poor role model for our youth to look up to. She goes back with the very man (Again I use that term very loosely) that abuses her! She should have got help from a shelter about her abuse and promoted that her fans do the same if they were in an abusive relationship! Instead of seeking help, she goes back to the very man (Again I use that term very loosely) that hits her! She is asking to get hit again IMHO and therefore when it happens she will have no one but herself to blame! I just hope her fans wont follow her same lead and go back to their ex if they were abused. Or worse yet stay in the abusive relationship! Shame on Rihanna for truly irresponsible behavior!”

“And airlines cant make bigger seats and sections for those who are obese/morbidly obese? That is ridiculous to think that someone died because the airline did not have enough room for her to fit. They should pull out some of those small seats and put in bigger ones but then that would mean less money for them. I hope her family gets a huge lawsuit, then maybe they will start considering EVERY passenger not just the health freaks!”

They are the ones at fault here not her. All of you heartless Bastards out there saying horrible things about her ought to be ashamed of yourselves! Would you hold that same opinion of her if she were your mother, wife or sister, I think not! She was a paying customer and they chose to discriminate against her rather that accommodate her. That is complete negligence on their part and it needs to be acknowledged and remedied so this does not happen again!”

David Hutchison on Nov 27, 2012 at 02:01:49

“Oh please I spent my life in aviation, this woman was a severe health risk and no one should have an obligation to carry her. She would not fit in an economy cabin I know that flies. Business class seats would not be let hold her either and NO lavatory on airline that I know could let her use it. How would they get a aircraft sized wheelchair down the aisle to get her to her seat or a lavatory. This was a very high high risk situation and the only fault I see is even considering carry her to start with. The husband should sue himself for spouse abuse for allowing her to become so overweight.”

“I don't think you quite grasp that this was a question of safety, not prejudice. She couldn't fit onto the plane and she couldn't be belted into the seat once she did. That would have been a total disregard of safety protocol for the aircraft and they would have been held liable for every injury due their poor judgement in the name of convenience of a morbidly obese woman.”

“I knew what you meant, because it's a claim made more often. But it has absolutely no scientific basis beyond biased studies which have been fully debunked afterwards. 

Perhaps you've seen a correlation between abuse and homosexuality (though the numbers don't add up: The National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS) 1.51% of the population of the US identify as GLBT, whereas other studies put this figure as high as 8% (Fay et al, 1989). However, statistics for people abused in childhood are significantly higher that this, with reliable estimates given for child sexual abuse to be 16% for males and 27% for females in the USA (NRCCSA, 1994). 
Correlation does not mean causality however.Even if it would be true that there is an increased chance of a LBGT person to have been abused in his childhood, it is far more likely this was because they were LBGT, not the other way around.  (Wachob, 1999)

I think the people who think homosexuality is (in some cases) caused by any kind of trauma believe deep down inside it's dysfunctional, or at least not normal. To compare someone's sexuality with something as PTSD or DID is symptom of (unconsciously) not accepting LBGT's completely. ”

I am adamantly opposed to anyone telling my child what is right or wrong when it comes to the bible or homosexuality. Thats my job as a parent and no one elses! I am very supportive of the LGBT community and will not have anyone telling my child that God wont love you if your gay, or that its wrong to be gay! Your either born gay or your made gay due to tragedy or trauma in ones life. No one has the right to judge someone else because of who they choose to love. Remember God said "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"! Only God can judge us and until then we need to stop being so darn hypocritical of one another!”

I do feel sorry for the families of those who tempt fate by surfing, diving or swimming in the ocean, but l have no sympathies for the individuals who are that stupid as to think they can enter the sharks domain and come out unscathed! After all they do not come on shore and attack us in our homes, except on really old Saturday Night Live skits! Yet we have decimated millions of sharks around the world. Surfers are attacked because they look like the natural food of the shark, seals. Instead of trying to kill the guilty shark, how about making them surfers stay out of the ocean and surf instead at water parks that have surfing pools!”
