How would you feel if you suddenly encounter a shark during a fishing trip? Most of us would probably freak out and feel terrified but no, not this guy from the Land Down Under.
Australian Nicholas Wilks went fishing with David, his father, and to their surprise, they came across a 10-foot great white shark. Apparently, it got ensnared in their fishing net.
Nicholas Wilks and his dad David encountered a great white shark while fishing.
The incident happened in Port Pirie, South Australia where the two spent some time fishing. As they were pulling the fishing net, they saw the shark tangled up in it. David successfully tipped the shark out but later on, it returned.
It eventually ended in a tug-of-war match and David had to punch the animal.
In an interview with BuzzFeed, Nicholas shared:
“Apparently the shark hadn’t had enough so he came back, and when he was right by the boat, Dad tried to ward him off with a swift punch to the nose.
“And so the shark didn’t like that very much and went berserk, and that’s when he grabbed onto the net.”
What followed was a tug-of-war match against the shark with David telling it to “f**K off!” and it actually worked as it left them alone.
Nicholas posted the footage on his Instagram account and it immediately went viral from there. According to him, the incident actually happened a year ago and it wasn’t until recently that he uploaded it online.
“I hadn’t posted on Instagram for a while and i just saw it there!”

The story has since been picked up and featured by many websites such as Telegraph, Maxim, the Lad Bible, and Ask Men, among others. It likewise cemented David’s reputation as a total badass Aussie dude!
Fight Breaks Out Between Nurses Inside Operating Room in the Middle of a Surgery
They turned the operating room into a boxing ring!
Not all fights where opponents wear gloves take place inside a ring. Sometimes, it happens inside the operating theater - yes, during an ongoing surgical procedure.
A video has gone viral on Chinese social media for all the wrong reasons. A closed circuit camera in a healthcare facility in Lankao County, Henan Province in China filmed a brawl between two medical professionals. These healthcare workers, who are allegedly nurses, obviously had some sort of a spat and had, for some reason, mutually decided to settle the score right there and then.
Gloves and punches were thrown. Luckily, the action happened a few feet away from the patient zone and the patient was in no way harmed. However, we cannot deny that such reckless actions placed the patient at risk.

South Pacific Island Uninhabited for 600 Years is Now Drowning in Plastic
Where did all these plastic waste come from?
Imagine a lovely day by the beach - you're away from the noise of the city streets, away from your demanding job, away from all the stress. You eat a hearty lunch and spend a fun day with your family. But wait, you forget to bring an extra trash bag for your trash and you think, "Hey, no problem, the ocean's a few feet away." So you throw the rest of the rubbish in the ocean while no one else was looking.
The thing is, have you ever thought about how far the trash that you throw can go? If you haven't given that idea a considerable amount of thought, then let allow us to provide you some information.
Take a look at Henderson Island, a small piece of land located in the South Pacific. Judging by the photo and by just looking at all the rubbish that are scattered in the sand, you might believe that it is only a short distance away from the city. You wouldn't even guess that it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. But looks, indeed, can be deceiving.
