Wow that is a big fish! Well not that big by Great White standards but still pretty bloody big (apprently it's a juvenile).
This seems to have been an accidental killing and so I’m not too bothered by it. But this bit really gets my goat:
Mr Harris [who caught the shark] said the marine monster probably went a long way to explaining the fall in numbers of rare Hector dolphins - which had been blamed on commercial fishermen.
It’s a bit of a stretch don’t you think? Especially with this article in the sidebar beside it. By the way because it was juvenile, the female shark had yet to breed.
Last night I read this blog about rugby and made a comment on it. I disagreed with the author’s conclusion (especially that it is cheaper to drink at the pub than at home!) and so though it would only be fair to link to him.
Kung Fu Monkey has a post about a film festival (that he heard about from Alice). It’s called the 2thousand5 Machinima Film Festival and all entries are films made with game engines. So there is hope for all of you Halo fans or those of you who have spent hours making Sims movies.
Now coming up later today is a statistical analysis (or as much as is possible) of the IRB’s Tri-Nations 2005 Statistical Review and Match Analysis (pdf file). Their “analysis” is actual just a reporting of the descriptors rather than an analysis. It’s also poorly written.
Until then, Mahalo
