Laura makes ASCII art, using MS Notepad. (Since 1998). She is currently exploring adding colour to the plain text to make postcards.

I like sharks. I've liked them long before the movie Jaws. Actually, I never went to see Jaws or watched it on TV for years and years. I avoid horror, mangled body parts and all. So, Jaws wasn't a big influence on me.

I did get a copy of The Book of Sharks, with paintings by Richard Ellis, for my birthday one year. I loved it. If I hadn't already liked sharks, that book and all the paintings published in it's pages, would have given me the love of sharks.

There is something special about sharks. I like the way they can move so smoothly through the ocean, their body streamlined and smooth in appearance. It's incredible to know sharks are actually sandpaper rough. They don't seem that way when I watch them on TV. I'm a fan of Shark Week, even when they only show re-runs I've seen at least three times before.

It's awful to hear about the hunting of sharks for shark fin soup. I've been reading about shark conservation, which is not limited to the shark fin hunts but the sport of shark fishing as well.

I like to see shark art. Whether they are painted, drawn, photographed or in ASCII art.

      I will look up sand sharks. I know there are a couple of fish or fish-type creatures which can be dangerous or poisonous when stepped on. As far as I know, we don't have anything like that in the lakes here. Nothing that people get routinely warned about at least.

      We have a lot of sharks. The biggest worry, though is sand sharks; they sit at the bottom and just hang out there. most of the problems happen when people step on them by accident because they didn't see them.

      I've yet to see a real, living shark. I did see one which had washed up on a beach, dead. Not so pretty by then. I like living in Ontario when I hear about Florida with those big snakes, alligators, now the wild boars too. I hadn't even thought about Florida having a shark problem. From what I've heard there are a lot more insects, all year round too. What were the perks of living in Florida again... ? :) My Mother goes down there for about half the year to get away from winter here. Winters are pretty mild compared to what they were though. I'm not tempted to travel with her. I like the snow. But, I would like to see a real shark at some point, a living one.

      Not a fan of sharks, living in FL. I hear about them being sighted all the time and swimmers are often warned to watch out for them when wading out on the ocean beaches.

      That said, I do enjoy good ASCII art when I see it.
