Hypothetical scenario; what if you fell into a shark tank? The ocean’s apex predator circling you as you struggle to both stay afloat and search underwater for this massive creature. What would your first instinct be? Panic? Swim in fear? Thrash in the water like a squirmy, delicious meal? Believe it or not, the best course of action is to stand your ground — or water in this case — and swim slowly and calmly away from the shark, and if it tries to attack you, swim towards it like you’re about to fight back. It may sound like suicide, but swimming away in a panic triggers the shark’s predatory instinct to HUNT YOU! Why is this important? Because assuming that you are safe will always get you into more danger than analyzing the situation and assessing the threat.

Food is a daily necessity as well as a luxury. In fact, restaurants have made millions serving customers fancy food and advertising their dishes through various marketing strategies.
