So, the Discovery Channel decided that the world really needed to know who would win in a fight between a shark and a crocodile, so they called in some "experts" to feed all the scientific data into a computer and spit out the results: Apparently, the croc's inability to breathe perpetually underwater came back to (pardon the pun) bite it in the ass, as it had to release a potential game-winning death grip on the shark to surface for air, and that's when the great white came up from underneath - hey, just like the Jaws poster! - and delivered the finishing chomp into the crocodile's soft underbelly. Ring the bell, this match is over.
Overall, the show was nothing spectacular (an hour of building robots and National Geographic stock footage for about two minutes of actual "action"), but at least we got the cool visual of a CGI croc and a CGI shark biting each other's faces off ... Still, I'm not quite sure exactly how we're supposed to believe that a computer could determine the outcome of such an encounter, just by feeding a bunch of numbers and equations into it. Unless, of course, it works like one of those pro wrestling simulators:

Just so you guys know: 75% of this crap [you read on the internet] is made up, either by the writer, or the wrestler the writer is getting the dirt from. Just so you know. -- Statement by "Tammy Sytch", from Hyatte's Dec. 29th column ... Lest we forget.
I think that the shark probably would have really torn up the croc's bottom jaw and tongue during the head to head, doing enough damage to make the croc quit right then. I love crocs and their kin, but the shark had it all along. Most any other animal and yeah, the croc takes it.
My old place used to be a prime location for Regina's fireworks (across the street from the urban park where the fireworks were set off from); now we'd have to move into or across from a local parking lot. I'm thinking we'll be too lazy to bother.
