    Stunning picture of an Iceberg

    Ever seen an iceberg from the bottom?

    This picture was taken by a rig manager drilling off St. John's, Newfoundland.

    They have to divert these icebergs away from the rigs and usually tow them away with ships. With this particular iceberg the water was calm and the sun was directly overhead and so a diver was able to get into the water and snag this picture with an underwater camera, they estimated that this piece of ice weighed about 300,000,000 tons!

    another fake i thought so



    Shark Attacks Helicopter!

    Netlore Archive: Photo purporting to show a great white shark lunging out of the water to attack a scuba diver dangling from a helicopter ladder


    Description: Email hoax
    Circulating since: August 2001
    Status: False


    Email example contributed by C. Ellis, 8 August 2002:

    AND YOU THINK YOUR HAVING A BAD DAY AT WORK !!
    Although this looks like a picture taken from a Hollywood movie, it is in fact a real photo, taken near the South African coast during a military exercise by the British Navy.
    It has been nominated by Geo as "THE photo of the year".

    Comments: Anyone who has ever visited San Francisco (or even seen postcard pictures of the place) knows this "real" photo couldn't possibly have been taken off the South African coast. That's the Golden Gate Bridge in the background!
    The image is unquestionably a fake, albeit a very good one. It's a composite of a U.S. Air Force photo (inverted) of an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter during a rescue diver training session in San Francisco Bay and a still shot of a great white shark breaching the ocean surface by acclaimed underwater photographer Charles Maxwell.
    Detail (original size)
    Maxwell says the shark image came from footage shot in False Bay near Cape Town, South Africa.
    The anonymous cut-and-paste job first began circulating in August 2001, when sharks and shark attacks were very much in the news because of the widely publicized mauling of eight-year-old Jessie Arbogast off Pensacola Beach, Florida. The 2002 variant featured here, circulating as a Word document with fabricated (and misspelled) caption, appeared precisely one year later.
