Setting aside the facts that this is a giant beast, the water is filthy, and there is a lot of blood in the water, I’d like to ask our readers to focus on the men standing in the shadows under the pier.  If I were them, I wouldn’t take such chances.  They have an 80% chance of death by squashing, either via whale shark carcass after those puny ropes break, or via pier collapse, caused by the thousands of witnesses there to take in the spectacle.  What a way to go. ~AKH
