    Will you be watching the GWS vs GOAT on Discovery during Shark Week? I’m inclined to think it a bit of nonsense, but I’ve been wrong a lot.

      don’t know what GWS is, I don’t guess. or GOAT. but I do like Shark Week . . . (not that liking that makes me have cable).

        Apologies, I thought perhaps you might have cable. I keep forgetting not everyone has it. GWS = great white shark, GOAT = greatest of all time. Olympic gold medalist (23!) Michael Phelps goes to South Africa to find out if he can swim as fast as a great white shark. via computer simulation of time trials for each “contestant.” I did watch it, and it was more interesting than I expected. Some scientists on the expedition kitted Phelps out in some pretty cool swimwear (i.e. a mono-fin). If you have computer access in or nearby your home, you can probably watch the Shark Week eps from this year on the Discovery website. I did learn something new this evening from another show: mako sharks are FAST.

          wow, cool. and, I DID hear “GOAT” somewhere recently, and asked after it, so I should have known what that was right off.

            Well, you can’t know everything. If you did, how would you speak? :-)
