On one of the hottest days of the year during the North American heat wave in Randalls Island, New Yorkthe race saw co-favorite Norm Bright and several others collapse during the race. Zamperini later related several anecdotes from his Olympic experience, including gorging himself on the boat trip to Europe: I had not just one sweet roll, but about seven every morning, with bacon and eggs.
My eyes were like saucers. Zamperini enlisted in the United States Army Air Corps in September  and earned a commission as a second lieutenant. Lost during search mission[ edit ] With Super Man no longer flight-worthy, and a number of the crew injured, the healthy crew members were transferred to Hawaii to await reassignment. Zamperini, along with some other former Super Man crewmates, was assigned to conduct a search for a lost aircraft and crew. They were given another B, Green Hornet, notorious among the pilots as a defective " lemon.
McNamara ate all the chocolate they had in a panic, but he later redeemed himself by using an oar to defend the survivors from a shark attack. They attempted to gain the attention of a search plane but failed. With the few tools they were able to salvage from the crash, the men were able to manage on two small rafts that got released. They caught two albatrossesone of which they ate, and used pieces as bait to catch fish, all while fending off constant shark attacks and nearly being capsized by a storm.
Post-war life[ edit ] Zamperini had at first been declared missing at sea, and then, a year and a day after his disappearance, KIA. When he did eventually return home, he received a hero's welcome. Evangelism[ edit ] In a televised interview on the Christian Broadcasting Network inZamperini related that after the war, he had nightmares about strangling his former captors and began drinking heavily, trying to forget his experiences as a POW.
Graham's preaching reminded him of his prayers during his time on the life raft and imprisonment, and Zamperini recommitted his life to Christ. Following this, he forgave his captors, and his nightmares ceased.
One of his recurring themes was forgiveness, and he visited many of the guards from his POW days to let them know that he had forgiven them.
Zamperini told CBN that some became Christians in response. Given a chance it seems they will even try to eat moose. Last November, a man in Newfoundland found a Greenland shark gagging on a piece of moose hide, which had probably been thrown into the water by a hunter. He and another man decided to save the shark from choking on the hunk of moose. It seems the sharks aren't too concerned about the freshness of their meals. Researchers have found small crustaceans called amphipods in their stomachs.
These critters swarm over dead bodies in deep waters, so finding them hints that the sharks sometimes eat carrion. View image of "My eye! It's on my eye! For one thing they are absurdly slow, moving more sluggishly than any other shark.
One satellite tagging study found that they usually meander about at around 0. Others say they can reach 2. Regardless, many of the things they might want to eat can swim faster. If that wasn't enough, many Greenland sharks appear to be almost blind. The shark that rammed the Harbor Branch submersible had them dangling from its eyes.
So how do Greenland sharks catch anything? It has been suggested that the parasitic crustaceans might be bioluminescentand that the light they give off attracts fish for the shark. He says the scientific literature on the sharks is "contaminated" with unsubstantiated claims like this.

The seals also have to poke their heads through ice holes to breathe, giving the sharks an opportunity to catch them unawares. No one has directly observed Greenland sharks catching seals in this way, but there is some circumstantial evidence.

Large numbers of dead seals with "corkscrew" wounds have been recovered at Sable Island off the coast of Nova Scotia. Some were bitten in half, while others had the skin and blubber stripped from the lower halves of their bodies.
Whether or not the Greenland shark is the "Corkscrew Killer", Fisk has evidence that the species eats seals aplenty. He knew that seals in Svalbard have a short average lifespan despite seemingly ideal conditions: Wondering what was killing the seals, his team carried out stomach analyses on 45 Greenland sharks, and found that about a third contained the remains of seals.
That was enough to explain the shorter lifespans. View image of Even belugas Delphinapterus leucas may be on the menu Credit: Fisk's stomach analyses showed that they eat the discarded leftovers from Norwegian whale hunts.
And it's not just dead whales they'll go after. Fisk has photographs of a group of beluga whales that came to a grisly end after becoming trapped by shifting ice off Baffin Island, northern Canada. If they are as common as everyone now suspects, they would have a big impact on other animals, says Fisk. That may also be true in their deeper habitats, even if they get most of their food from sinking corpses.
Benz says the sharks could be helping provide food for a wide range of other animals by breaking up these larger chunks of flesh. If Greenland sharks are so important to the waters they live in, it would be good to know what is going to happen to them. In theory there are two things that could cause a problem: For one thing their meat is toxic, because it is rife with unsavory organic contaminants.
This Is What It’s Like to Audition for ‘Shark Tank’
So Greenland sharks are not regarded as a good dining option. Ina group of sled dogs was fed Greenland shark flesh. Reportedly they were left walking stiffly, hyper-salivating and vomiting - not to mention having muscular convulsions, respiratory distress, and explosive diarrhoea.
The meat is detoxified through a multi-week rotting process. Others have described it as a contender for the most disgusting food on the planet. It probably won't catch on enough to threaten the species.
Fishermen might catch the sharks by accident, though.
