    Evidence has come to light that whales can live for 150 years or more. A harpoon with the date of 1880 in it was removed from a bowhead whale recently. Since whalers (then) didn’t shoot at calves, and whales tend to reach full growth in about 30 years, that makes that whale in the 200 year range.

    Now: Imagine what it knew before it died.

    Pretty sure it knew that we totally suck and are almost done destroying its home.

    An unidentified diver hovers above a Red Sea porcupine fish from the family “Diodontidae.” Pectoral muscles that act as bellows and lack of ribs enable these fish to suck up water or air and treble their size when frightened.
