By the time you are reading this post, you must already have heard or read that the world’s largest aquarium had cracked and leaked. This Dubai Mall aquarium is home to 33 thousand sea creatures (including several sharks, whose teeth I’ve seen really up close) and contains 10 million liters of water. So when you read that something so massive has cracked, it is scary. And watching this video makes it even scarier.
According to local news, the leak has quickly been sealed.
And now, apparently everyone who has access to Google is searching for the leak. My blog statistics for today proves that.
And there are those who like to make intense drama.
Predictably, the UK tabloid The Sun screams: “Terror as mall shark tank cracks”. It goes on to tell its several million readers: “Shoppers at the Dubai Mall fled in terror fearing that they about to be engulfed by 10 million gallons of water holding 33,000 sea creatures…Mall security men donned life jackets”.
