US Blows Up Whale

I must have clicked the wrong button to come up with this news story.

The interesting bit is the second half the video (lucky its only 45 seconds):

Video - Stranded whale dies on beach - The Sydney Morning Herald

Well, you can learn something new everyday! I no longer believe that dynamite is the answer to all lifes little problems.

Re: US Blows up whale.

I blame the dynamite manufacture. They should have had a section on blowing up whales in the manual.
