Distractions: February 8

Stephen Colbert defending Planned parenthood

Extreme Points of the Earth

Whale Shark caught in Pakistan

I have no problem with fishing. I have a problem with whaling. I’ve even given soem thought to joining the Sea Shepherd. So, this video makes me a little sad. It is a fish and not a mammal, but it’s so big and gentle that it smacks of whaling. Regardless, it’s interesting to watch the size of this thing and the amount of effort needed for humans to manipulate it around. I hope it fed a lot of people.
