    Now the thought of large amounts of SNOT!

    Ok not dangerous, very fragile, but YUCK.

    Kinda like "No snot, sherlock", teehee :p

    There were times when I was so sick I felt like I could produce that amount of mucus, it just never seemed to end.

    Sharks are surface feeders so watch out... Seems like now the only safe place to be in the sea if you're in 50 feet of water is the 25 foot mark which is basically a no man's land. Gotta watch out for those alligator snapping turtles too. The ones that have the little red lurl for a tongue and powerful jaws that could take a foot off. Next time you venture out into a lake and feel those big rocks under your feet, you could be standing on one their backs.

    Snot and Red Tide... Been an interesting marine week.

    The only problem is if you happened to be swimming in the area that the mucous was being produced. :eek:

    Nature continues to show ecology, nothing is wasted.

    Yes I read the article.

    It mentions "as the sinkers drop to the sea floor." So in another words the "sinkers" have to be dropping from somewhere. That is where my reference of possibly swimming in the area. Once on the bottom, that is when they become food.

    It was snot as scary an article as I thought it'd be.

    Cool read. I think I'll stick to boats, though. Come to think of it, so would the sinkers... as well as anything else.
