Each summer, Discovery Channel's "Shark Week" capitalizes on our collective fear of large, toothy fish with seven days of programming dedicated to topics like "Rogue Sharks," "Killer Sharks" and "How Sharks Hunt."

At the same time, however, the people at Discovery Channel want us to be realistic about the actual incidence of shark attacks. The "Top 100 Shark Facts" listed on DiscoveryChannel.com point out that shark attacks are actually very uncommon. In fact, you're more likely to get bitten by another human than by a shark.

Since shark attacks are pretty rare and getting bitten by another person is not so rare (or not as rare, at least), we decided to focus on a more common kind of shark attack, one that most people should learn to protect themselves from as soon as possible: The office shark attack.
