    This is why science should be banned. This, and colonoscopy.

      Believe me, here in Texas (and other like minded states such as Mississippi) are working very hard on this very thing. Here is one of our supporters talking: 
      “People now don’t die from prostate cancer, breast cancer and some of the other things.”—NY GOP congressional candidate Chris Collins, in explaining why the ACA should be repealed
      [eh, I'm in Austin. One has to have a healthy sense of humor to live in this state]

  2. How about South Korea can kill as many whales as it likes, but only if it does so by leaving them in rooms where there are electric fans running?

    Don’t miss the exciting arcade action offered by the Japanese Cetacean Research Simulator!

    Then I suggest we torpedo whaling ships and call it war games.

    • Mitchell Glaser says:

      We should disguise a torpedo as a whale and let them harpoon it! I’m heading over to Kickstart…

    On a related note, North Korea is considering allowing the hunting of humans, again for “scientific purposes”

  6. Kaden Harris says:

    The research in question:  “What does that whale over there taste like?”

  7. LennStar says:

    I am amazed that they openly admit how bad their scientists are. I mean, to not now what a whale looks on the inside afters *centuries*!!

  8. They already have scientists on whaling ships. They’re just normally too busy getting raped or murdered to do any research.

    Do they explain what they hope to learn from new scientific research on whales?

    What aspect of whale academics could be helped by hauling in a few hundred every year, chopping them up, and selling them to sushi houses?

    The problem is that they are giving the same lame excuse for hunting whales.  Just admit it’s for food, and everything’s fine (as long as they don’t hunt it to extinction).  Why copy the bad part of Japan?

  11. Alden says:

    How many whale-related scientific papers a year are published in Japan anyway? There  must be lots!

  12. crummett says:

    Whales: how do they work?

  13. Jason Conort says:

    Many whale species are endangered, but don’t worry I am sure once there gone, we can  move on to the next thing to kill off.
