Swimming with sharks: is it ever safe? - Telegraph
Balanced article, concluding with the hookline: "In their element, they [sharks] are our superiors - and that is precisely why we are excited to see them." Not for me, personally. It wouldn't be an extraordinary thing to do if there weren't real dangers, no matter how unlikely. It would seem those who've experienced it both play down the risks and talk up the thrill of the danger simultaneously.

Wake Up Music on Bretagne - bfenthusiasts | Forums
Incidentally, if anyone likes the music it's Waltz 2 by Dimitri Shostakovich. e.g. from Jazz Suite / Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra: "Dimitri Shostakovich".
e.g.: video clip with the music here:

For example, it has been used as the wake up music on Britanny Ferries crossing from Portsmouth UK to Caen in France, in 2006, would appear to have been centrally controlled - you can't turn it off.

I remember it so well, in 2006, when I used to work at Philips Semiconductors in Southampton (now NXP) and would visit colleagues in Caen to work on Digital TV Set-top boxes, taking the overnight crossing from Portsmouth.
