I suppose if you reach hard enough you can blame the economy on everything, apparently even shark attacks or the lack thereof. In 2007 there were 50 shark attacks, in 2008 there were only 41. According to one expert because of the poor economy fewer people went to the beach for vacation and therefore there where fewer people in the water to be attacked by sharks. At least there's an upside to the bad economy...

Oh sheesh. Cracks me up some of the conclusions people draw over statistics like that.
