    As much as I appreciate nature, I would have freaked out if I saw that in person.

    I saw that a few days ago. I had no idea that they would do that.

    Yes Jeff, my wife and I caught that on Discovery HD the other night. It was amazing how far out of the water that great white jumped to eat that seal. What was more amazing though was how slow they had to run the video for us viewers to even see it. I wish they would have shown it in real-time so we could see how fast that shark really is. Nature is amazing...
