It’s that time of year again. That magical event where we all find ourselves glued to the television for one week straight– jaws a gape as tale after tale of maulings are reenacted for our viewing pleasure in high definition. [More on Shark Week after the jump]

What it says about our society, that we await this week with baited breath, is something best used for fodder with your shrink.

For now though, get your fix for organic gore while you still can, because besides being a steady source of income for Mr. Monotone voice-over-man, the Discovery channel’s annual event is a poignant reminder for us land lubbers of why Mother Nature still can demand all our attention, and that of our DVRs.

Just make sure the only water you swim in on your upcoming vacay is chlorinated.
