  • the chances of that happening are one in 1000 or less. Ive swam in the sea thousands of times. In all states of Australia. Been shark fishing lots of times also.

      As makaeletric says I root for the shark when they are eating people.
  • I've swum "in the sea" several times. Probably well over a dozen times. Not one of those times did I become a shark's meal. SO: it's not true that "...they will become a shark's meal when they swim in the sea...". Perhaps you should say, "...they might become a shark's meal when they swim in a sea or ocean." That would still be incomplete, though, as (for example) there are several recorded shark attacks in fresh water in some locales (especially in Central America and northern South America, where certain species of sharks frequent the mouth/delta/estuary regions of rivers).

      You mean to say “I swam in the sea”. There’s no such word as “swum”. The question I asked is directed at anyone who swims in the ocean (I am correcting myself) where sharks can be found.

      You are mistaken regarding "swum". Look it up. It's incorrect - for example - to say, "I've swam".

      Swam is a past tense of swim. It depends on how you’re saying it
    • Shadow
      I went on to Google just there and I see we are both right. The past tense of swim is swam or (archaic) swum.
    • www.bible-reviews.com
      No. "Swum" is the past participle, and I did not write "I swam" but - rather - "I've swum". "I've swam" is NOT correct.
    • Shadow
      It depends on the context of the sentence and how it is said when using the words “swam” or “swum”. Either or.
  • Getting hit by lightening has more favorable odds.
  • You don't get them in the UK Shadow, (well except for Cornwall), but I went paddling out into the sea in the Summer on my body board (in a not so elegant fashion, in my mind I'm thinking woman from James Bond, in reality, a drowned rat), anyway despite living in the UK, Sharks still enter my head, "Damn that Jaws film." You are more likely to come across a floating turd in our waters, still, pretty frightening, no one wants to swim into one of those either! 😐

      I know that there are no sharks that kill people in certain waters in parts of the world like Ireland and the UK but there are sharks that do kill in other parts of the world. Because of the movie Jaws, some people are afraid to go swimming in the ocean

      Absolutely, I feel a bit like that when I'm abroad, but when I went to Florida, it was the warning signs for the "Man Of War jelly fish" that put me off of swimming.

      You can still go swimming at a gym which is different to swimming out at sea.
