    ---------- Post added August 5th, 2013 at 02:19 PM ----------

    Christie Wilcox said it best! "Here’s what I don’t get, Discovery: Megalodons were real, incredible, fascinating sharks. There’s a ton of actual science about them that is well worth a two hour special. We’ve discovered their nursery ground...s off the coast of Panama, for example. Their bite is thought to be the strongest of all time—strong enough to smash an automobile—beating out even the most monstrous dinosaurs. The real science of these animals should have been more than enough to inspire Discovery Channel viewers. But it’s as if you don’t care anymore about presenting the truth or reality. You chose, instead, to mislead your viewers with 120 minutes of bull****. And the sad part is, you are so well trusted by your audience that you actually convinced them: according to your poll, upwards of 70% of your viewing public fell for the ruse and now believes that Megalodon isn’t extinct."

    It has been estimated that over one million birds and 100,000 marine animals, including mammals and turtles, die each year from plastic debris. We can all do our part by limiting the use, or better yet, not using at all, plastic products li...ke shopping bags, party balloons, straws and plastic bottles. Be a frugal shopper and recycle!
