Shark Cam 360

Want to be surrounded by real live sharks all day? Virtually? I thought so. To celebrate the 25th annual Shark Week, Discovery has a crazy 360-degree Shark Cam streaming from the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. You can click and drag within the video window to see sharks and other sea creatures lazily swimming around you...all around you...you cannot escape...must close browser window...without...angering...sharks....

There are also some special events inside the Shark Cam tank coming up next week:

Beginning Monday, August 13, tune in for live diver Q&A sessions starting at 12:30 p.m. ET, and daily whale shark feedings at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. ET — every week day during Shark Week (premiering Sunday, August 12, at 9PM e/p).

In a bizarre-but-awesome move, Discovery now sells official "Live Every Week Like It's Shark Week" merchandise, making the 30 Rock joke a reality. (No, I don't get a cut of the sales. I wish.)

To make the cam creepier, just play the Jaws theme in the background on repeat.
