Too Much Information?

In this world of data/information, you can find answers to just about any question.

Screenshot from  my phone yesterday.                            Maybe 2 miles off shore?

For example,  did you know that you could follow on Twitter, the travels of a 17 foot, almost 4,000 lb Great White Shark named Mary Lee? (@MaryLeeShark).

I began following Mary Lee a few years ago and noticed yesterday that she has 115,000 followers! (Almost exactly ten times as many followers as I have on Twitter).  I also noticed that she was enjoying the cool waters just off the beaches of my youth, (and reality TV shows about dysfunctional NJ youths).

Here is the latest newspaper story, almost a week old.  I bet the coastal chambers of commerce were not happy about their pinging guest’s visit.

Having been a pool lifeguard and strong swimmer in my youth, I was usually the farthest swimmer away from the shore.   Today, I take comfort in those days being behind me.
