    We’re gonna need a bigger twin-hull catamaran.

    Wow — is there a name for variation of the Streisand effect? Was anyone suggesting a link between this and Deepwater Horizon before the professor mentioned it?

      You took the words right out of my brain, including “Streisand Effect.” I never would have thought of a two-headed shark being related to Deepwater Horizon if they hadn’t brought it up.

        That’s odd, because it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the headline.  Something tells me Corexit and sealife don’t get along too well.

         Never believe anything until it is officially denied.

    • I’d say that its “Ironic process theory” the same kind of effect from saying something like “Don’t think of a pink elephant.” having the opposite effect. I’m sure the researcher was responding to something that he had heard speculation on, but it is funny that it has the opposite effect.
