Whaling

    I'm not against whaling, in fact I don't have a problem with any sustainable food being hunted.

    This move by Iceland is astonishing if it is actually a blue whale (Which is still being determined isn't it?)

    There is no way with technology that they wouldn't have been able to identify it so I hope there is some sort of action taken against them by their own govt or otherwise.



  • Iโ€™m surprised anyone would eat a large marine mammal, they are incredibly toxic

    With 8 billion people, you'd be pretty pro-cannibalism, wouldn't you? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don't think we are supposed to eat our own kind in the long term? For a similar reason you don't feed pig related products back to pigs?

    Norway used to have shirts which said "Intelligent people need intelligent food."

    That always cracked me up.

    Has Iceland signed some form of treaty agreeing to not hunt blue whales? I assume they have.

    I can't back this up but I believe there are 'x' types of whales that are allowed to be hunted and am certain that Blue isn't one of them.

    Yeah I'd be very surprised if the Iceland govt signed off on this. There has to be a very heavy heavy sanction, otherwise more boats will "accidentally" kill a blue whale and sell off the meat, parts etc. to Japan for some exorbitant price.

    I think that's just squeamishness isn't it? Rats will certainly eat other dead rats - and I bet wild pigs will eat a dead wild pig. No shortage of human cannibals. We pretty happily eat cattle and about 80% of their DNA is the same as ours.

    I don't think so? Those two cases you said are probably infrequent events rather than part of daily diet. I am sure restaurants have to exclude Pig related products that go to pig farms so it isn't part of the pigs regular diet



  • @chris-b note to self, do not accept offer to dinner at Chris' place.



  • @taniwharugby hold on, just need to see if he shared any good recipes in the BBQ and meats thread ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just when I was planning another Nelson get-together for my "internet friends".

    The guys who came last time - Bartman, Redbeard, His Bobness, Mojo and a couple of others whose names I forget - thought it was so delicious they decided to stay....indefinitely... ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Cannibals in Papua New Guinea get this from eating brains the same way cows got mad cow disease

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmissible_spongiform_encephalopathy



  • @hooroo wasnt that the Mad Cow disease outbreak in the UK linked to cows being given feed which had a blood and bone mixture of cows and sheep?



  • Hang on ...

    They sell to the Japanese? As in, the same people who went viral for tidying their stadium at the WC and left a lovely message for the hosts in their changing rooms?

    Canโ€™t be the same people, must be a mistake.

  • I thought this thread was gonna be about that fucken whale in Welly that has it's own FB page.

    If someone came in and harpooned the thing and spared us all that shit I'd be happy.

    Think bigger bro, wouldnโ€™t you prefer it to go the way of that god forsaken penguin Happy Feet and be torn to pieces by killer whales ?

    True, they could throw Ursula Carlson in as bait.

    I love the thought that in the time it took you to type out the word โ€œWhalingโ€ you ran out of energy.

    You know it's not the whale who set up the Facebook page, right? It's just swimming around oblivious to the fuss.

    It's people creating the shit.

    I can send you some recipes for ...err...Fried Whales.

    Killer whales have standards , Iโ€™m sure her blubber is as tasteless as her comedy.



  • @jegga plus KIller whales are a bit small for that bait!
