Description:
A fear of sharks is known as galeophobia, a condition that might be growing more widespread as media stories about shark attacks seem to be getting more frequent. Highlighted by the unsettling live video footage of professional surfer Mick Fanning getting attacked during the J-Bay Open event in South Africa, this summer produced an endless stream of media reports that seemed to point to a troubling trend of aggressive shark behavior. Heck, we were even subjected to the third offering as part of the Sharknado movie series.

Now, let’s be clear here – none of the reported attacks have been fatal. In fact, shark attack deaths are extremely infrequent, with many seemingly mundane activities bringing about a higher death toll. There were 15,000 deaths identified as being caused by cycling between 1990 and 2009, a period that produced just 14 shark attack fatalities. Even lightning strikes have been statistically known to kill 40 people annually, far exceeded the death rate for shark-related mishaps. Shark attacks have increased in sheer numbers over the years, but have actually decreased proportionally in relation to a growing population.

In reality, sharks have little interest in feasting on humans. Beyond population numbers, increases in attacks have come as a result of more people finding their way onto beaches and into oceans. For those who find themselves swimming far off the coast and in deep, shark-infested waters, you are occupying territory that belongs to them. If they decide to approach, it’s borne more out of a curiosity over a foreign presence than any vicious intent. Even when it comes to shark encounters, exploratory bites are far more common than attempts by sharks to devour human prey.

It’s understandable that it would be of little comfort for most people to know that most shark bites are more exploratory in nature than malicious. After all, a shark sighting is going to be downright frightening for a swimmer regardless of the shark’s intent. Armed with speed, power and sharp, jagged teeth, sharks offer a destructive enough force that any of the approximate 60 attacks every year have the potential to be deadly. The good news is that shark attacks happen to be quite preventable. Aside from staying near the shore when wading into the ocean, simple, easy measures like avoiding fishing areas and holding off swimming with open wounds can help, as can staying out of the water at night. If you do encounter a shark, do your best to stay calm, try to maintain eye contact and then back away slowly.

That being said, you still don’t want to find yourself in the crosshairs of a hungry, blood-thirsty shark. These 10 people couldn’t prevent shark encounters, but their crazy survival stories offer hope that you can live to tell the tale even after being in the presence of a Great White. Here are the remarkable stories behind 10 terrifying shark attacks and the lucky folks that survived the traumatic ordeals.

10 Most Dangerous Roads in the World

Top 10 of the scariest, most unsafe highways, bridges and roads ever built. Car and truck accidents and deaths are a common thing on these streets. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg

The invention of the road dates back to ancient times thousands of years ago. It was one of the most innovative inventions that connected cities and countries together. Anything that had wheels had an easier time getting by, and it was the birth of road organization as we all figured out which side of the road we would use to move forward. Today, roads are paved with concrete, and man has managed to create roads in the most impossible of spaces, making the world more accessible than ever. However, just because a road can be built, it doesn’t mean that it should. Some roads seem to defy the boundaries that Mother Nature set upon us, but have we ever thought about the fact that the boundaries were set for a reason?
The roads on this list are considered to be some of the most dangerous in the world. Whether they have a high death toll, destroy a multitude of vehicles, or cause a numerous amount of accidents, it is best that experienced veteran drivers who aren’t seeking a thrill use these roads. Some of these roads defy physics and are sculpted on the sides of mountains. While it is a pretty concept, with breathtaking landscapes, they usually mean a pending death should you turn a corner wrong or even go just a few miles over the speed limit. So, is it worth risking losing your vehicle, or even your life by taking these roads? Some people don’t have a choice, as these roads provide the only access to major towns and home.
For example, the Himalayan Road is one of the highest roads in the world, as it sits at over 11,000 feet in altitude. Which means that an impending death awaits on each stretch of road, which is pretty much made of crumbling dirt. A lot of buses and trucks use the road since it connects India with Tibet, so not only do you have the road to worry about, but also the traffic of other cars who may or may not be paying attention to the road. Next up, we have the James Dalton Highway, which has become a legend by itself. The road sits in the most northern part of Alaska, which means it’s icy and cold. Not to mention that the road has a lot of potholes and is used by big oil rigs on a daily basis. Windshields get destroyed from falling rocks, and headlights are knocked out as well. Not to mention that this highway is also in the middle of nowhere, so if you run out of gas, you’re royally screwed. Rental companies won’t even allow renters to drive their cars on the highway, for fear of damage and loss of their product.
These are yet, but a few of the most dangerous roads in the world. Some people have created video channels of luxury vehicles trying out these terrains, with many of them not being able to drive away from the damage inflicted. So, if you see a sign for a road that says, “Highway to Death/Hell/etc.” it might be best if you just turn around and find another route.

Death waits for no one. A person’s time on this planet is finite, with few ever able to predict their final moments ahead of time. It becomes something of a creepy, unsettling irony, then, on the rare occasions when those final moments are captured on camera and can live on well past the expiry date of their subject. Indeed, there is an inherent morbid curiosity in people that draws us to tragedy and instills a fascination with the idea of mortality. It is why people were abuzz upon the circulation of a picture, now confirmed as a fake hoax, that seemed to depict a tourist standing on the observation deck of the World Trade Center with an incoming plane – set to hit the tower – visible in the background.

The following list offers 10 instances of the final moments of a person’s (or people’s) life chronicled through a chilling and very real photo. In each case, the subject captured is either happily oblivious to their forthcoming doom or just in the process of recognizing the dreary nature of their horrifying situation. One can’t help but look at these images and consider the fleeting, tenuous nature of life – enjoying a Kodak moment in one instant and meeting your end in the next.

These morbid images have never been more prevalent or easily accessible. The present selfie generation has been called vain and self-indulgent, but it is also one adept at capturing moments. Many of these images come from people who feel compelled to chronicle every possible aspect of their lives, often to their own detriment. In fact, this list reveals multiple instances of how selfies can go ever so wrong. The ability to post photos immediately from you phone and onto a wide array of social media sites enables an immediacy to communication that wasn’t available in the past. The below list even includes a tragic car crash that could be connected to the driver’s posting of a selfie within a minute.

The selfie-related tragedies prompt a particularly headshake-worthy rebuke as an ego-centric trend that hardly seems as though it should factor into life and death, but this list accounts for a wide array of emotional responses. Some of the below entries evoke pity for what’s to come for the unsuspecting photo subject, some are chilling in their candid clarity, some prompt a sensation of panic-stricken stress as viewers see what terrible fate awaits on the cusp of the photo’s action and some represent a much-needed symbol of a happier time or one final glimpse at a full of life subject.

There’s an unmistakably bittersweet sensation associated with seeing these photos and knowing the ultimate fate of the subjects. These people look alternately lively and blissfully unaware of what doom awaits them, and dreadfully hopeless in full understanding of their dire circumstances. It is both sobering and poignant to think that these photos have been able to live on and tell a story that their subjects were unable to.
