More whales

There was a boat-whale incident near Santa Barbara yesterday that sent a human to the hospital and left whale pieces on the boat.

Small boats hit by breaching whales is not as uncommon as you might think. Using's Wayback Machine, you can read a CNN/Reuters story from 2002 about a fisherman being killed by a breaching whale north of Santa Barbara near Morro Bay.

Speaking of whales, you can also watch some 35 year old video of geniuses in Oregon trying to get rid of a dead whale by blowing it up.
