Wow! Has anyone seen the documentary on Discovery HD titled "Sharkman"? I saw it tonight and this guy did some amazing stuff. "Michael Rutzen attempts to hypnotize a great white in open water" is what the information guide briefs on the show. I looked up tonic immobilization and found this web site with some information about it; http://www.sharkdefense.com/Repellents/Tonic_Immobility/tonic_immobility.html. The show was awesome and he dove with tigers and great whites. Highly recommend watching it, if you get the chance.

We watched this and you are right, it was weird, but pretty neat to watch.

When I think of sharks "shorting out" I always imagine some electrical surge sound echoing in their heads

I know that doesn't occur, but it's kind of funny
