    But what if you were floating in a bathtub with large Moray next to a pod of Orca. Staying in the tub or jump overboard?

    Bob Marx says that Morays are more dangerous than sharks. I'm staying on the boat. " Rule # 1, never get off of the boat."

    I'm lost? :confused: Y'all is a contraction thru elision of You all, but I see people type Ya'll and wonder what words they are deriving that from? :idk:

    I used to visit a bar called Ya'll come back and asked them, but they just sold beer.

    I get confused a lot actually. :silly:

    "y'all" is singular, and "all y'all" is plural. Even I know that and I'm not even from Texas. :D

    Would you like some lessons in Texan? You is singular, "y'all" is plural, and "all y'all" is poetic. :wink:

    You would not walk into a room with one other person and say "How are you all?"

    So anyone seen the tuxedo dolphins recently?

    re moray attacks here are some tales i have been told. i believe them but have never researched.
    1- the spotted are more aggressive than the green.
    2- their bite is like a bulldog in that they never ever release, even after being sliced in two.
    3- another nice thing about their bite is that their saliva has a blood thinner in it.
    re orca attacks on humans, i recall seeing a video somewhere, probably on youtube. it showed an orca tipping over a kayak. then it left the human wet but unharmed. maybe it looked like a seal from underneath?
