Bad Day At Work?

If you think you had a bad day at work, how do you think these guys feel. This pic has been nominated for best photo of the year in National Geographic.

Although this photo looks like it was taken from a Movie, it is an actual photo taken off the coast of South Africa during a British Naval Exercise.

Thanks for the Pic Linda

Damn, can't really see it too well. O-kay the picture is a helicopter with a soldier hanging from a rope ladder below it. Some sort of water rescue exercise. Jumping out of the water is what I can only assume is a Great White shark (of Jaws fame).

Don't mean to burst your bubble on the top water fishing pic, but the picture was actually taken in the San Francisco Bay, California. The soldier (diver) is member of the U.S. Army's 7th Special Forces (someone I know personally) during a routine training exercise climbing up into a U.S. Army Black Hawk helo supplied by the 82nd Airborne Aviation unit out of Ft. Bragg, N.C. (where my buddy on the ladder is from). While the shark is a real picture of a great white shark, it was supperimposed onto the photo. There are/may be sharks about that size in the San Francisco Bay area, but that particular one isn't really trying to eat the dude on the ladder. Just thought I'd throw that out there, but it's a really cool photo that got a lot of laughs from a bunch of my friends and the guy on the ladder. Hadn't heard the one about the one about the British Navy thing in S. Africa though, that's really going to crack 'em up back at Bragg, can't wait to run it by 'em.

Oh yeah, I know this is supposed to be like a Vagina Chronicle thing here, but I just sort of surfed in through another friends site and the photo caught my eye. Not to mention the really nice looking lady who runs the blog here. Sorry.

JustMe... I already tried to post a link to the National Geographic website to the article that talks about it being a fake...obviously, my original comment didn't stick.

Dang... oh well, Google Shark Hellicoptor and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Pic was debunked as urban legend awhile ago. Some fancy Photoshop editing.

Once again I apologize to one and all. Should have checked my facts, but loved the pic, and wanted to share. Will we ever be forgiven?

Man, some people have no sense of humor! Lighten up people! It is a cool pic that has been floating around the web for a while, and was purported to be true for quite awhile before somebody figured out that the perspective is off by a bit and looked a little closer. Don't feel bad, alot of people took it for real and I think it was even published a few times as legit, so you are hereby forgiven, let not your heart be troubled!
