Skyshark Warning Pamphlet
Providing you with yet another legitimate excuse to keep shark repellent on your person at all times.
About this creation
In order to help prepare you all for the upcoming Skyshark Invasion, I have prepared this small informational pamphlet. While the threat is not yet upon us in force, it cannot be ignored.

This is a standard Skyshark. Note the beast's gaping maw. The shark teeth lining the interior of the mouth are used for ripping off large chunks of flesh.


In the event of an attack, do not aim for the eyes as with a seaborne shark. These have developed an eye casing protecting them from Human attack.


As you can see, the Skyshark tends to target one victim and pursue until that victim has either escaped or been devoured. This is incredibly fortunate, because for the most part all you have to do is outrun at least one of your group. Traveling with at least one tasty-looking and unlikeable person is advised.


Here, you can see the bystanders of a chase can relax and watch the spectacle unfold. It's quite fascinating the first few times, but the other sharks usually realize there's an enraptured meal waiting for them.


The Skyshark usually hangs two-three feet below it's balloon. The reasoning behind this is unknown.


Here, you can see this balloon has received damage. This could explain why this particular shakr is so low to the ground.


This shot was submitted by Gary of Apartment Block 32. Gary, like others, filmed the killing of the unfortunate scientists. Our fascination with their methods of killing our own is probably their greatest strength. Remember, help your neighbors, but DON'T BE A HERO. Heros are their equivalent of fast food.


In closing, this is all the field data we've gathered. The original skyshark was observed in the following experiment:



FAQ:

Q: Do Skysharks fear fire?
A: That is preposterous. They do not know fear.

Q: Don't they need to breathe in a watery environment?
A: No. They prefer them, but do not require them. I offer my sincer apologies to those who live in Seattle.

Q: Where'd they get the balloons?
A: The same place you do, except they have their balloon-wielding friends kill everyone first. They're at their most vulnerable when the balloon is destroyed.

Q: Why do they attack humans?
A: Some say it's because we're the easiest to catch, but it's most likely because the average human is within comfortable biting range of the typical shark. They float about 3-5ft from the ground, and most humans are within that range. They're almost as lazy as we are.

Q: How do they move? Wouldn't they just drift?
A: Who said you could ask two questions? And obviously they use their tails as a rudder, much like their seaborne counterparts.

Q: How was this data gathered?
A: Most of it was gathered by the great shark watcher, Shannon Young. He rocks.

Q: Why is that balloon so poorly built?
A: ... Shut up. I can't build spheres.

I Like Sharks, But Skysharks Are The Best. I Could See How Humans Would Be A Suitable Meal For A Sky Shark, Normal Shark We Lack The Fat Content To Make Up For The Actual Eating Of Us, But A Skyshark Wouldn't Tun Into That As They Don't Swim But Float, Much Less Effort.

Quoting riley franklin this is awesome but one question srry if this irritates you but whats a shakr?
Trust me, you can only irritate me with this sort of thing if you go grammar nazi on me. And I'd assume a shakr is some bizarre shark variant, possibly a desert dwelling species.

Quoting Matt David I don't know how I missed this. This...this was good. I mean, like, really good. I'm assuming you drew the cartoon? That was hilarious. I soooo need to get a shark so I can reference this gloriously funny story.
Thanks! I really wish I'd drawn the cartoon, but it's from the webcomic XKCD. The rest of the story however, is mine. I firmly believe this is my best writeup to date.

@Rusty: Thanks, the commentary was the most fun I've had in awhile. @Shannon: Hehe, thanks! I thought I'd go for something fun and a little off the wall. And I'd recommend being careful. Skysharks can be quite unpredictable...

Q: Is this a prizewinning entry into the Vig/orama Contest? A: It's definitely an interesting -- wait! Oh my god! A pair of skysharks right outside my window performing a ritual mating dance! This is behavior I've never seen before! Where did I put my notebook?

Wow! I really wasn't expecting this. @Heath: Thank you, I don't recommend trying a sphere unless you know what you're doing. It's an avoidable headache. I'd say we have about two years before they figure it out. Until then, we have time to construct fortresses and find a way to combat them. @Tyler: Thanks! It should, as that is their characteristic feeding sound. @Everyone Else: Sorry about this, I don't have enough ways to say 'Thank you'. I suppose I could dip into other languages though... To the google translator, away!

I've never tried a sphere, so you're way up on me there! LOL This is a very unique build. Very funny, and excellent back story. Let's hope the sharks don't find a way to replenish their helium supply!

The build is XKCD, while the text is mine. And thanks! It was a pain in the rear (Fragile sphere + thin clear supports - reinforcement = swearing match with plastic) to get it all together, but I'm happy with how it came out. (That sphere still makes me want to eat my socks though.)
