whales and stuff

Do whales run into stuff?

Clutzy whales? Never thought about but I betcha no1, our resident google-Fu expert, could chime in with something.

That would be one heck of a bump, for sure. Oooooh, what if that’s what causes earthquakes?!?!?!

i thought you were the google-fu expert!

anyhoo, i’m not sure if people really understand why whales beach themselves. mabe that’s a case of whales “running into stuff.”

here’s a link to a scientific american article about whales beaching themselves.

No.

You are.

i’m rubber and you’re glue
whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.

Dunno, but if dolphins are as smart as their advocates claim, why do they get caught in fishing nets?

because fishing nets are hard to see and don’t show up on sonar. That first part is also why they work on fish.

I wanna think that they sometimes do. Nobody’s perfect! :wink:
