The mother whale is probably scolding his son: "We watch them, we don't poke them"

this is why i support whaling. whales can be dangerous creatures and pose risk to human life.

So can mice, dogs, cats, birds, potato bugs, shell fish, and peanuts.

Kill 'em aall, so there is no other incident like this one for another... well, forever!



You cannot be serious! Should we hunt tigers too, because they are dangerous to humans? By the way, gorillas can be pretty dangerous too.

In fact, if a panda sits on your face, you might suffocate. Kill them quickly!

Heck, humans are an even greater risk to human life! So humans should wipe all humans out so that no more humans can harm humans. As there would be no humans posing a risk to humans:rolleyes:.

Humans are 1000000X more dangerous to human life, so I suppose you support hunting down humans, too.

Crazy story

From what I read elsewhere though it might have been their fault as they might have been aggravating the whale. Can't seem to find the link though.

Went whale watching once, the company garenteed a whale sighting. After the whole day of the coast of main I saw a tail... Just a tail. So they are lucky they saw the whole whale. Lol

A lot of humans are more dangerous than whales.

Yikes, never heard of something like that happening before. 1 in 100,000+ odds? Not in the whale's best interests, very unnatural. Wonder if whale thought about how unlucky he was to have a boat get in the way despite being in the vast ocean.

This is why I don't hang around MacRumors much anymore. I can't believe nobody realised Dylan was just having a bit of fun.

You all take yourselves far, far too seriously, and frankly it's embarrassing so many of you need a myriad of smileys - or worse, any humour that's not explicit completely removed from a post - to understand it.

Here Dylan, have a :D
