    A 56-foot sperm whale's insides lie strewn about after its belly burst due to decomposition while being transported to the National Cheng Kung University in Tainan in southern Taiwan on January 26, 2004. The whale ran aground and died on a beach in the southwestern county of Yunlin on January 17. (Taiwan Apple daily via Reuters)

  7. I love the look on dude's face in the pic. That's what I would be doing.

    Recoiling in horror.

    But I could imagine this being a fun college party favor. Have some kinda competition, looser gets thrown in the whale explosion!

    Bacterial infection fun for everyone!

    I'd tempted to just scream out "Go Fish" [​IMG]

  9. I wish I was there to see that, just walking down the street then BAM! a whale just blows up.
     
  10. awesome. i wonder what it smells like.
     
  11. Man. I wonder what they did w/ the remains of the whale still. Known trouble causer/exploder.

    The picture of it on the truck in the background is equally disturbing. Big ole gash in the side, etc.

    Icky poo still.

    There was another good one a few years ago too in Oregon.

    The local dude-with-a-shovel decided that using a crane to remove several ton sperm whale was too much work, so he decided to just blow it up. Unfortunatly, he used way too much explosives. Flaming whale parts rained upon the town, creating thousands of dollars in property damage. A half ton chunk of blubber flew 3/4 of a mile and smashed a car. It's one of my all time favorite exploding whale stories!
     
  17. LOL!!! Blowing up whales can be the worlds new favorite past time!
     
  18. Good times. Seen that video a couple times.

  19. weird how his internals came out of what looks to be his spinal area.



    either way still nasty.
