Whale Spill

A 56-foot, 60-ton sperm whale died on a beach in Taiwan in January, 2004. Researchers wanted the carcass to perform an autopsy and for research, so they loaded the whale onto a tractor-trailer and set out through the city of Tainan, heading for the Shi-Tsau Natural Preserve. It took 13 hours, three cranes and 50 workers to get the whale loaded on the truck. Unfortunately, on the way through the city, gasses built up to a critical level in the whale and it exploded, spewing whale guts in the street, on the cars and over pedestrians. According to witnesses, the smell was pretty bad. Residents and shop owners put on masks and tried to clean up the mess. Eventually the whale continued its journey to the research center.

    Why is the dude in the second pic still beatboxing even though there's like a couple of pounds of whale guts by his feet?

    I saw this on National Geographic Channel. It got hit by a cargo ship then when they tried to move it back to the lab, it blew up. Disgusting, and ruined a lot of people's day. I think if a whale exploded in front of my store it would be a wrap on the rest of my day. +3 btw
