Eli - Monster Mako!


Love it!
This is good television, and good Shark media to boot.

Big kudos to Eli for a job well done - and for the cojones, too!
Although we rarely speak and although I don't really follow what he does, the tidbits I see and read document a remarkable evolution that I cannot but applaud. In brief, he really continues to grow on me - and I must alas also add that conversely, the abject jealousy and pathetic Wadenbeissergekläffe of his serial detractors is really becoming terminally insufferable!
No no names - you know who you are!

And the bloody flipping of the Tigers?
Like I said back then, it doesn't harm the Sharks; plus, now that it has been trivialized as everybody and his dog has started to copy it, betcha that it will be phased out sooner rather than later - the more since manhandling Sharks will lead to lousy scores on SustainableSharkDiving!

But I'm digressing as always.
Enjoy the video!


PS - talking of which, look at this - amazing!

Yup - c'mon if it's on television it must be true!

Sorry, the one in the Azores two years ago makes this one look like a teenager. Sorry (part two) the absolutes in the commentary are nauseating.

It's all a matter of perspective, understanding the optics of wide-angle lenses, and an advanced knowledge of Einstein's Very Special Theory of Relativity.

Take the formula:

mL = LE +/- Df.wal +/- BDC

m = mako
L = Length
E = Eli
Df = Distance from
wal = wide-angle lens
BDC = Barrel Distortion Calculated

- Then to make the mako 11 feet long it's only necessary that Eli is 10 1/2 feet tall.
