Here, Hear, finally some sense coming out of this hippy thread. Sure whales are nice and wonderous and so on, but they are somehow being put ahead of human lives in terms of value, mainly by retarded activists who do not know anything other than their cause!
Anyone putting the animals rights and lives ahead of a fellow humans, should do us all a favour and go get married to one of these animals, go live with them and maybe one day get hunted just like one lol.

No, whales can't make tools, or cook an omelette, but they sure as hell don't make war on eachother, or screw eachother over for a percentage, or contribute to their own destruction, the way us humans do, knowing we are doing it, and continuing to do so, anyway!
Which, unfortunately makes the human race somewhat insane, where as whales, and so many other creatures seem to maintain a rather peaceful, balanced, harmonious existence, without all the drama!
