Hippies Failing Badly!TM
The hippies return tonight at 8 EST and 9 EST the first being a Whale Wars Operation Bluefin And then a Whale Wars Spinoff - Whale Wars Viking Shores.
Screw the AK-47 I was hoping the jet would sink the Steve Irwin with a missile!!! Then again what would we have for entertainment on Friday nights?
It boggles my mind why they showed the Blue fin tuna show. I've never seen something more embarrassing in my life. They looked like the most incompetent fools on Earth!
Each Friday I will post the thread an hour before each episode just as a reminder and then we can all have a lot of fun making fun of these fools!!!
Boy the Arabs had me rolling when they were using Sea Shepherd's tactics against them and the hippies were bitching about it!!! Typical liberals. Do as I say not as I do...
I wanted that Libyan plane to shoot the boat with a missile though. And I love that they hippies were complaining about the Arabs using "SEA SHEPHERD" tactics against the hippies!!!
Do as I say not as I do!!!
And thanks everyone for another fun Friday Night Whale Wars. I'll try and find the pictures of the Whale Wars bingo and Whale Wars drinking game.
Glad to see everyone again to witness Hippies Failing Badly (tonight VERY badly!)
Thanks for adding me.
I have a couple of questions about blue fin tuna populations.
First, when I do a search on the subject I get a lot of hits on articles warning about dangerous declines in blue fin tuna populations but most of the articles (like this one: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=bluefin-tuna-stocks-threatened-cites-japan-monaco) are written in 2009.
Has something happened since 2009 to stabilize the populations, like some kind of restrictions on the use of long-lines or something else?
Second, I remember a discussion a long time ago on another forum on this subject and a person posting there was a commercial fisherman and he said that commercial fishing can never drive a species to extinction because long before it reaches that point it will become commercially non-viable and fisherman will stop fishing for it and then its population will rebound. Does that sound right?
There are a lot of knowledgeable people on this thread so I thought I’d throw these two questions out there.
The thread itself, by the way, is very interesting.
Yeah they remind me of Last of Summer wine cops anybody who saw that BRIT series know what I talking about LOL!
Yeah it nice to see Capt Watson in orange jumpsuit LOL!
I was confused the whole time because 50 minutes of the show were dedicated to their stupidity then they end the last 10 minutes with them saving 3 million dollars of tuna.
All I know is the Blue Fin is in the Gulf of Mexico and Mediterranean. And that overfishing has screwed the population. And poachers make it worse. And no one is enforcing the law.
These International "Committees" are just jokes. What happens is massive bribery for votes.
But Travis can clarify this issue better than I could.
He'd be the Great Pumpkin from Charlie Brown Halloween!!!
I canceled sat TV so I no longer can watch. All in all a fair trade.
OMG that be funny to sight Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown LOL!
I can't imagine how 1st mate rat face (Peter) doesn't have a complex for not being Captain.
Each year they bring in someone new to Captain and he's always 1st mate!!! LOL!!!
These people literally spent the entire year doing this. Think about it. They were in the Mediterranean last March / April, then Faeroe's Islands (I'm assuming right after since it seems it is warm otherwise they wouldn't have jet skis!), then they have to go all the way back from the Faeroe's Islands to Australia, and then spend a few weeks getting ready to head down to Antarctica.
These people clearly don't have families or if they do they are estranged.
I get that they love whales and this and that. But, IMO this is all about TV and $$$. Why spend an entire year at Sea without getting paid? Makes no sense.
But as I said the more money Sea Shepherd gets the less money Democrats are getting, and we get some entertainment. So it's a win win for us! :P
will do when I get home today, been too busy to visit FR over the weekend so missed your post.
gotta check out the stomping chant at the end of that song. They have new stuff out I’m sure, but I bought the above and some others from amazom mp3 older stuff seems unavailable now, but may be at itunes.
shows some scenes of the islands
So sorry that degnar left, because we really need a Whale Wars thread. Tonight’s episode was the most infuriating one I’d ever seen.
Hippie woman to Faroese, pointing to a picture of a chopped-up whale on the side of their van: “LOOK AT THIS! THE WHALE’S BABY HAS BEEN RIPPED FROM THE WOMB!”
Irony is completely lost on such people.
