Lady: How much do you pay per beer?
Man: $5 each including tip.
Lady: How long have you been drinking?
Man: About 20 years.
Lady: 3 beers a day equates to $450 per month or $5,400 per year. In 20 years, that’s $108,000.
Man: Sounds about right.
Lady: Did you know that if you put that money in a savings account, that after interest, you would have had enough money to buy a plane?

Do you think this would work on a boat,
Maybe. Perhaps a test is needed. Tie a few to your arms and legs. Jump into the water with a tether. Float about for awhile while we motor/sail about. We can see if they distract the sharks.
