Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg will be hosting a 21-and-over sleepover called Sips and Sharks this fall, where you can spend the night at the aquarium with real-life sharks.

It's no secret that sharks are very fascinating creatures. My fiancee is obsessed with them. Even during Shark Week, when you see all kinds of documentaries about sharks and shark attacks, you'll hear her say in her "sweet" voice about the sharks who look pretty vicious at times: "Awww look at them. They're little babies!"

You either think sharks are cool or you think they are terrifying. Personally, I find them pretty interesting, but I'd never want to be caught in the water with one. However, I really wouldn't mind venturing off to Gatlinburg for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend the night with a bunch of sharks.
