    A Quick Personal Update Plus A Request From Boston University

    Filed under: Post With Surveys

    I don’t know what it is, but I have had a cough and congestion since December that simply won’t go away.

    My endless cold, the stormy Winter and the fact that Psycho Bitch is still making my life miserable has kept me dry since February.

    But, things are looking good for the Summer – the warmer weather will hopefully dry my congestion up, Psycho Bitch is packing – but lacks a destination, the heavy snow pack in the mountains means a great rafting season and with all of that, hopefully comes some great diving.

    I have been requested to post a link for some students at Boston University to help them with a class project.

    If you have a few minutes, please fill out the survey to help them out.

    Basically, in their own words, this is what it’s for:

    We are a team of students in the School of Management at Boston University. For our classes this semester, we have a semester-long project in which we come up with a new product and develop the business plan for it. Our team has come up with a product for scuba divers; it is an underwater communication wrist tablet that uses handwriting recognition and text messaging capabilities to send messages to fellow divers while underwater.

    One of the requirements for our project is to gather 200 surveys of consumer feedback in order to calculate the market interest in the product.

    375 Pound Shark Leaps Into Boat

    Shark Jumps Into Boat

    FREEPORT, Texas – It’s the catch of a lifetime, but it’s not clear whether a Texas fisherman landed an 8-foot shark or it landed him.

    Jason Kresse, 29, of Freeport, and two crew members had been fishing for red snapper about 50 miles into the Gulf of Mexico and were dumping fish guts into the water about 3:45 a.m. Monday when they heard two big splashes in the distance.

    “All of a sudden something hit the side of the boat,” Kresse told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “He ends up landing on the back of the boat.”

    The mako shark had apparently been in a rush to feed. It began thrashing around, and Kresse said he and his crew couldn’t get close to the 375-pound fish to toss it back in the water. It damaged the boat before dying several hours later.

    Kresse, who has been fishing since he was a child, said the unplanned catch was a shock. Just unloading it was a challenge because it was so heavy.

    “We had to use a forklift to get it off the boat when we got to the dock,” Kresse said.

    The crew didn’t have a permit to catch sharks, so Kresse contacted federal fisheries officials on shore to get one. Mike Cox, a spokesman with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, said there’s no violation because the shark’s death was an accident.

    The shark is on display at a seafood business in Freeport, about 55 miles south of Houston.

    “I’m going to get a mount of it,” Kresse said. “A fish jumping in your boat, 400 pounds, that’s unbelievable.”
