I am sure the American evangelist taliban of South Carolina won't believe it, because it is a scientific discovery. Maybe some of their congressional folks can hold up the announcement in the House of Representatives.

Fascinating shark. Do they sometimes work in construction. Nothing like built in equipment, one never has to worry about losing construction tools.
