Question of the Day: What is Scarier Than One of The World’s Largest Shark Tanks?

Question: what is the only thing scarier than one of the world’s largest indoor shark tanks? Answer: one of the world’s largest indoor shark tanks with a crack.

The famous shark tank in a Dubai shopping mall surprised visitors with a massive crack that poured water into the mall and led to a partial evacuation.

The 75cm thick glass has cracked, but the situation appears stable.

Previously, the opening of the mall was delayed by the problem of the sharks eating each other with 40 sharks being devoured by other sharks, here.

  1. And as we pay 2, 3, 4, 5 dollars a gallon for gasoline, they buy 30-in think acrylic shark tanks and find 33,000 ‘sea creatures’ to put on display?? Humm… priorities… But CPAC and Pea-Parties are running a close second for loon-watch of the century…

    Maybe we should push HARD for the newly introduced ‘BloomBox’ to actually work !! (…

  2. BIL,
    I too would welcome my own gorilla overlord…I’m rather fond of the big apes!

  3. Canadian,

    At this point, I for one would welcome our gorilla overlords. They’d throw less feces than our current pols although they probably don’t smell much better. On the plus side, they are immune to traditional graft and bananas are hard to hide and perishable.

  4. Speaking of sharks and in an apparent slam at Cousin Sarah Palin, favorite son Jeb Bush now says “public leaders” must have “intellectual curiosity” to be viable in 2012. Duh, now he tells us. The curious story and accompanying poster can be found at the Crooks and Liars website:

  5. BIL,
    You took the words right off of my fingertips! If the onlookers were scared, think of how the sharks felt!
    I always wonder when people will just start appreciating nature in nature, my guess…when the gorillas take over and start rounding us all up, and locking us in cages so that we can be their amisement!

  6. It’s Just a Catfish!

    For all those crazy guys who go ‘noodling’ for catfish and stick their arms down the fish’s throat!! This would be ‘all the catfish you can eat’,

    Each year, a few people were drowning or disappearing mysteriously in Huadu’s Furong Reservoir. It was not until recently, when the son of a government official went swimming, in the reservoir and was drowned, that the secret was revealed.

    It is a 3 meter long man-eating catfish whose head alone is 1 meter wide!

    After cutting up the catfish, people were surprised to find the remains of another man inside!

    Swimming in the reservoir is now forbidden because it is feared another similar man-eating catfish is still lurking in the waters.

    It’s Just a Catfish!




  7. Actually this already happened in Jaws 3D. You’d think Dubai would have learned their lesson from the Widowed Ellen Brody’s experiences.

  8. Question of the Day: What is Scarier Than One of The World’s Largest Shark Tanks?

    Here’s another possibility:

  9. Dubai seems more and more to be taking on the characteristics of a “Potemkin Village.”

  10. What’s scarier than any of the above is total structural failure of the tank wall. It’s not like you can just throw a patch on it and keep going.

    They are not easy things to engineer, and the only way that situation is going to be “stabilized” is by draining the tank and replacing the wall.

    Hope everyone’s insured.
