    Re: Whale Wars

    Japan has a lot of weird customs. Whaling isn't the worse of them. Although the crew of the Sea Shepherd shouldn't be respected as they are committing acts of piracy. Remember, kiddies, eco-terrorism is still terrorism.

    EDIT: Hahahahahaha

    Yeah, that's totally how body armor works.

      It's anywhere from a 15 minute to 35 minte drive home, depending on where I fished that day, so I really don't think that amount of time means much. Think of the bluegill that goes into the bass's mouth, into it's stomach full of acid. It suffocates/burns in there anyway. I could ice them, but why spend the money if I don't have to? Sometimes you have to ice them to preserve them, like if they are crappies or white bass.

      At least I'm not a pride of lions eating the butt of a live elephant that is crippled but not dead yet. That was truely disturbing, but it's God's way.

      So anyway, tonight will be the tears and gnashing of teeth, I hope.

      655,000 whales out there and the Japs are killing .2% I say just legalize the harvest of certain types of whales, with enforced limits, and then Watson can go have something like.....starving humans....

        Humans breed relatively quickly, a lot of them live in areas where they survive to maturity despite a lot of them really shouldn't. There are something like 6.5 billion of them on the planet. A population that size is going to run itself out of food, it's only the humane thing to cull the herd before they start using up all the other animals.

          Killing animals just to kill them is immoral. Here's the problem with limits. Everyone cheats with limits. One guy cheats and brings in over his quota, everyone else does.

          And Humans > Whales is such a disgusting comment. I don't understand how someone who considers themselves a morally upright person thinks that God gave us the right to kill any creature for whatever reason we want. Just because God gave us the power doesn't mean we should use it. The Japanese kill so many whales they try to give away the meat. Japanese no longer consume whale in large quantities and the fishing industry in Japan tries to convince the schools to pay for the meat.

          If we say .2%, the Japanese would find a way to cheat. It's what they do.

            After finally catching an episode, I now fully support the deaths of everyone on the 'Steve Irwin', and the people who give them money.

              Because they're stupid, or because their cause is stupid.

                They are stupid.

                I haven't really looked at their cause besides it's "save the whales", and they probably say buy only organic food, so they're probably equally ill-informed about the whales thing as well.

                  and I was off. It's actually 665,074. Wow. Not that this make what Japan is doing okay, but they don't seem to be endangered.
                  The Minkie Whales they kill aren't the endangered ones. They kill Fin whales also which are endangered. They said on tonights episode that they basically make a million dollars per fin whale killed.


                  As far as the number of whales killed. They have said on the show several times that the Japs have a 90,000 whale quota. I'm guessing they don't get there and i'm sure they fudge the numbers since they are not regulated at all--to further their "research" cause.

                  I'm guessing hunting Minkes is probably not illegal in non-protected waters. The problem is that the Japs are hunting them in a whale preserve.

                    If that were a good reason for wanting someone dead, about the people on this board might as well start marching themselves into their coffins.

                        90,000?...

                        I have my doubts that they're being used for research and if they're not they need to be shut down, but the Sea Shepherds are making it hard for me to side with their cause...

                              If by research they're looking into "how tasty whale tastes" or "how can we make Japanese people eat whale again" or "how can we kill as many whales as inhumanly as possible," then yes it's research.
