Oh I know. Just happened with a cruise ship the other week.

My opinion- Get rid of the massive cruise ships, teach captains to be more careful, and have the boat checked often to make sure they're not pushing along anything injured.

But honestly people are so selfish. The noise is doing harm, anyway. Get rid of recreational cruises.

No one will agree with me, though.

I seriously doubt this is true, as it makes no economic sense to people who actually ' live by ' the sea... plenty of fish, shrimp, and clams out there, you know ?

A meat source like this would certainly impact the culinary culture of Japan. Sushi just wouldn't dispose of such bounties.
Do the Japanese make pemmicin like plains Indians did to preserve the buffalo meat ?
Do they make salt-pork ( whale ) or bacon like the caribs ?
Do they pickle it or jerky it ?
I ask because I really don't know.

I have a feeling that whaling is a small brain/small penis/right of passage sort of thing.

I hope the Japanese girls will be a bit more accomodating... these guys look pretty tense.

A wonderful example that demonstrates animals intelligence and compassion for other species as well as their own. As a vegan I am constantly praying that people will realise that animals experience the same depth of emotions as we do, and are far more intelligent than we give them credit for. Its about time, in our "developed" world that we recognise that abusing animals for food/entertainment/clothes etc. is wrong.

It is my belief that humans, due to our intelligence and capabilities, have a responsibilty to look after the planet and it's residents by caring for other species, not killing them.
