they also tested whether a shark could break through a shark cage swimming at full speed. that myth was confirmed they tested whether or not a shark could bust through a ships hull also. I believe that was confirmed as well.

Diary of a Shark Man is being by far the best Shark Week show next to Air Jaws.

"shit it's long been proven that pushing on a sharks nose will stop it in it's tracks. it screws up their equalibrium and affects their nervous system." It's long been proven that pushing on a shark's nose will funnel your hand down their tapered nose into their gaping maw. You punch them in the gill area if possible, but anywhere you can. No way am I putting even more of my body parts near the one dangerous part on a shark.

That "Scientist" who was bitten by the bull sharks was a tard. Reminds me of that Grizzly bear "expert" who was killed a few years ago by a bear. You can stop a shark from attacking by pushing on it's nose. All of the sensing nerves on the nose are disrupted if touched while it's eating. Saw it on a science show. Some guy was hanging a piece of meat off the side of a boat. Just as a shark was about to bite the meat, the dude would push against the shark's snout and it would turn then away all confused. Look up "ampullae of Lorenzini" on Google.

They used reef sharks on Mythbusters, not bull sharks. That was the whole reason they went to the bahamas.
