Turkeys are assholes.

I don't know if they were always assholes, or if that behavior started after we started celebrating Thanksgiving.

This is gross and sad, but also kind of funny. These people on a cruise show up at port and there's just a whale slaughter happening like the ocean is literally running red with blood. What a fun vacation day!

Also it said these people are Scottish like what the fuck? I can understand if it's like Eskimos or something where that's all they eat for the year and they don't have grocery stores or whatever. But Scottish people (besides being European) are kind of normal westerners right? They don't need to be killing a bunch of whales every year. Just go get a hamburger. And yeah I get that we have to kill cows and all but like we do it in farms, away from the public eye so we can all pretend that the meat we get at the store just showed up there and nothing gross happened.

I just saw this on my newsfeed. It's the Faroe Islands, between Scotland, Norway, and Iceland. It's pretty far up there, might as well be Eskimos.

So people take a cruise to a quaint whaling village and aren't excited that they get to see the action?
If I go to the Hershey's factory, I wanna see some chocolate bars gettin made!

And........
… Hunting and killing methods have been improved to ensure as little harm to the whales as possible.
They ensure that there is as little harm to the whales as possible while they are killing them?
That makes sense.

Usually I think China sucks because they're commies and they're probably our biggest threat, but then they do stuff like this and it's hard not to love them.



In reality though, once the bear or man goes back down on all fours, I think it's pretty clear that it's a bear. I mean who's ever heard of a sun bear before today? I certainly haven't, so I guess they're just weird bears with flabby skin

There are several sun bears at the San Diego Zoo. Four sun bear cubs have been born there in the past decade. Here is Liberty, born there in 1986:

Giraffes' spots provide camouflage in the wild. Spotless giraffes are very rare. One was born in 1972 at Ueno Zoo in Tokyo and named Toshibo, which means "clever" in English. It died in 1996. Now another one has been born in Tennessee.

Well, here is a story you don't see every day:

There's a thread for that
