I read this in the newspaper yesterday (http://news.independent.co.uk/world/americas/article348700.ece).

It reminds me of Austin Powers... "sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!"

You know something is very wrong when it reminds you of something from a movie...

Damnit, I was just about to post a link to the same story on the BBC website http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4767428.stm

I think this is horrible, truly horrible. Humans next? Or has that already happened?

Oh I see this turning out well, when a shark turns around and bites someone and then is shot or whatever, as it WILL (in their minds) be the sharks fault, poor sod's. And I dont even like sharks, they scare the shit out of me.

Alright, this doesn't make sense.. if they were to use Sharks as Military Spies, why on Earth would they tell the world that? It's cruel to the sharks, but I reckon it is a smokescreen for something a lot bigger...

Personally I wouldn't have so much of a problem with the training of sharks, if they weren't actually putting electronic brain implants. The sheer manipulation of it is horrible. If they are influencing the animals' movements, then they certainly (as far as i can see) won't be able to use the excuse that they are able to look further into the natural behaviour of sharks, because it won't be natural behaviour.
Hmm... reading back, it doesn't look like they're looking at the natural behaviour at all actually anyway. Christ it really looks like torture... "remote controlled sharks". It also says about the scientists being easily able to tire them out, and are interested in how it affects their health. It just sounds like a laboratory test set into the wild...
sorry if i repeated myself, really tired!
