    I thought it would be nice for a change of pace from the reg political threads.

    No.

    But a most interesting thread, and yes, a welcome change form the more usual fare.

    You're just looking for an argument!

    In 2286, when a big unknown ship arrives at Earth and starts pulling the oceans apart, people would wish we had cared more about whales than arguing about politics. :D

    Orca prey on humpback calves which have become separated from their pods, so the humpback might just be extending the middle finger to the orca. Or something.

    EDIT: ...which is stated in the linked article, having now read it. Although if I were a humpback whale I think I'd be feeding seals to the orca on the understanding that they leave my family alone.

    So the fact that even whales know that ALL Lives Matter is what the name should be would be inappropriate?

    It's possible the humpbacks are just dicks and want to starve the killer whales.

    Here's a clue, bro. Save the whales doesn't mean **** the dolphins.

    Either my ignore list is working or for once a thread heads to wasteland without usual crew on it.

    Thanks to @mudslag for the top post and the link. Great break from the usual fare.

    Off to my day with a smile (thinking of barn swallows dive-bombing a blue jay earlier this summer; the blue jay had been trying to snatch baby robins from a nearby nest and the swallows went ballistic, even the parent robins seemed in awe).

    I think everyone in this little section of this forum needs to pick a substance and chill

    My mind automatically rewrote the thread title to
