Seems when tigers, and sharks, especially Tiger Sharks, are shopping for lunch and find nothing on their menu they go to the next beach for at least pupu.
It would seem prudent to close at least a few adjacent beaches in both directions as Tiger Sharks can swim and fin at 20 MPH, and as to safety it would be best to close the whole South Shore, due to their predatory range of hunger. They don’t eat every day do they.
It would be better than best to tag every shark in the ocean with tracking devices so every life guard tower could be equipped with computer shark tracking software and be able to warn every swimmer with a wrist watch shark tracking early warning system, in order to save lives from all the shark attacks pestering the island.
In fact, might as well tag every convicted felon, and display their where about on same wrist watch screens, after all they’re gonna vaccinate everyone of us by psycho mandate, even the 98% who are positive already and and had no symptoms, or mild or moderate ones anyway. This will help the bank tellers and the scaredy cats whenever suspicious masked robbers and Covid-19 virus are within 6’…and haven’t washed their hands 24 times a day.
This should be the new societal warning system, no sense in leaving your future up to chance.
Why let sharks, felons, and virus get the upper leg on ya? Well at least the sharks!
Call it the future new Normal. Who could possibly be for or against this. This would open up tourism on Kauai, and end food lines, and the empty vaccination centers.
During ‘nam, there was a saying, “What if they gave a war and nobody came!”…sounds like modern vaccination centers, like the no show free covid test centers in the park.
In 2019, some unemployed scientists got together and said, “let’s sell some vaccines”, another said “we’ll need a good advertising campaign”. And here we are…!
Ha, that was pretty good.
