It’s been 40 years since “Jaws” made people afraid to get into the water. And by water, I don’t just mean the ocean — I’m talking about lakes, pools and even bathtubs. I remember conquering my fear as a child to jump off the high dive, only to then realize there could be a shark lurking below. I’ve never swam faster to a ladder in my life.
Everyone knows “Jaws 3-D” was far superior in its depth and scope — the shark attacked Sea World, for god’s sakes. Who wouldn’t love that? I also had a thing for Bess Armstrong.
Anyway … long live the great white.

I’m glad I’m not the only one. Apparently, I thought sharks could magically appear in a 3-foot above-ground pool.
