According to Italian Shark experts, if you find yourself unexpectedly swimming with a shark...don't panic!Â You can easily hypnotize almost any shark (according to the researchers....not me!!) simply by rubbing their ampullae of Lorenzini:Â the name given to hundreds of jelly-filled pores around the animals nose and mouth.Â Â The sharks apparently love it and will fall into a deep trance for as long as you rub this area.Â Â Of course you will eventually have to stop rubbing to come up for air and then the shark may eat you, but it will be cool to balance a shark on your fingertips at least for a little while!

Don't be surprised if you see one of these sweet faces smiling back at you on your next visit to the hospital! They are called Actroids and they are being placed in hospitals in Japan to monitor patients. They basically sit in your room and stare at you to make sure you are doing OK. Pleasant dreams.
