A couple of local surfers, Big Mike and Ari Davis, are filming, producing, and directing what should be a pretty cool movie: The Outside Movie
I begged them to allow me to star in the flick, but I was told this was not quite the movie for the Team Depends / Ensure demographic.
Today's superstars include: E-Rock | E-Mo | Bright Boy | Jared | Team The Outside Movie | Deborah
Today was one of those rare days, when, if one is as skilled in seeking out surf spots as I am, there were good waves to be ridden -BA
When the 3rd Reef at Mission Bay's Hostile Local, Polluted Water Point is breaking you gotta hit it [first ridden by PB Toads in 1958]
- BUT -
One probably should think twice about it before entering the water if the main sewer is spewing ooze:The first stages of Mad Seal Disease [Sea Lions attempting to mate with Harbor Seals]
The reason...My guess is that there is a new strain of pathogenic bacteria, which causes, in addition to Mad Seal Disease, cholera, syphilis, anthrax, leprosy, and bubonic plague .
The most common fatal bacterial diseases one could pick-up in this water is tuberculosis.
Another pathogenic species is Staphylococcus aureus , which can infect wounds.
Any S. aureus infection can cause the staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, a cutaneous reaction to exotoxin absorbed into the bloodstream. It can also cause a type of septicaemia called pyaemia . Getting this infection can be very serious, frequently resulting in death. There were more than 22,000 deaths of both humans and Harbor Seals due to this infection in the year 2006.
