Hey! I saw the video the first time 10 years ago, but unfortunately decided to delete the file from my comp a few months later. Finally I got it back. Thanks for that. By the way: From my point of view it is not REALLY sure that the whale was dead already when being blown up. At least, if you define life as something producing smell (a good definition), there was pretty much life in it, wasn´t it?

I’ve seen this footage several times over the years, and I must say that every time I see it I’m more convinced that this is quite possibly the best tribute I’ve ever seen to the unfailing stupidity of the human species. What makes the whole incident more wonderful than words can express is that it was taped live.

Just wondering,

Does anyone else recall this being used as a Roald Dahl story ? Something about a watch that played greensleves ? Curious to know when that story was published – pre or post this incident ?

And to think there are starving kids in ethiopia and such who could have been flown or boated in to feast on such a fine delicacy.

lets see is that don’t stir up some S***.

chill out. I bet you still cry about your dog that died when you were five.

We downloaded the video about three years ago at my office.
Watching the video is now on the list of things all interns are required to do before they take on a permanent position.
Great site. thanks for keeping it up. We use it often here.

As a citizen of Oregon at the time (an still am!) I just have to say, there were those of us that thought it more than a stupid idea, we just had to let the powers that be find out for themselves. They did. None the less, Oregon is still the best of everything.

This is like a James Herriot story for Engineers. I say that as a fully qualified mechanical engineer doing a PhD at a Vet School. :-)

I can understand people being offended by this, but seriously, it’s worth a laugh because it’s so completely ridiculous! I’ve seen stupidity in my time, but this is of truly transcendent proportions. Just amazing! :-) (and the whale was *dead* already people!!!)

Hi
Thanks for the site, I really enjoyed it.
Regards, Kuta

ABTW Is it Ok to mention another web site I liked a lot (no, it is not mine!)? It’s just that sites like this deserve to be supported. You see, I was in Bali when the bombing happened, and was lucky as I had bali Belly that night. Otherwise I would have been in Paddy’s Bar almost for sure.
OK, well it gets my goat that all these Bali reservations sites have been saying Bali is safe. First, the Aussie police foiled another big attack, then the Marriott in Jakarta! And these liars are still telling everyone Bali is safe.
Anyway, I love Bali and have found an honest site giving good advice about how to visit Bali and be safe, called Bali.VG

This was funny. I found out about it while checking out a hoax site so I had to come and see it for myself. Yes it may have seemed logical at the time but they should have figured out how much whale blubber would go flying.

One of the most beautiful bit of reporting I have ever seen in my life. It makes the event that much more special. Expecting crabs and seagulls to clean up the leftovers was a particularly funny concept. Thats wanting them to do the workloads of hyenas & vultures of the Serengeti. I’m guessing the whole local population of gulls was wiped out in the blast. Any surviving gulls would never return. Too terrified. Funny man. Funny…. And educational too.
Like the reporter said “…We now know what not to do”.

Another fine example of mercurial ingenuity.
And don’t think it won’t happen again! And gee, the fact that the
seagulls didn’t show up to feed on the rotting morsels just goes to show
you that you can’t depend on nature to do anything right!

I just want to say that this was absolutely disgusting! I think that anyone who found this ammusing should grow up. What they did, they did because they didnt think that there was any other way to do it, and that is fine. But to broadcast it and have people watch and laugh at it is just plain sick!

Some of the responses left previously are proof-positive that there is just WAY too much caffeine consumption going on in our world. Get a grip and grow a sense of humor, folks! For all you well-meaning but sappily-brainwashed people “protesting” this silliness as anti-whale, you might remember this all happened way back in 1970…the year I turned 21 years old in Viet Nam. And the whale was ALREADY dead from other causes. While blowing it up was certainly a goofy (and VERY funny!) notion of how to dispose of a large dead animal, I find no sign that anyone involved meant any malice to whales. They may have been guilty of being kinda’ stupid…but certainly not evil.

Personally, I recommend the Oregon Highway Department be dispatched to take care of the remaining Al Qaeda. That would be a better use of their skills than disassembling dead whales.

HAHAHAHAHAHA. I cant belive that they actualy blew up the whale. My god the explosion was huge, and still there were large peaces in the blast site. What would ever give someone the idea to blow up a whale, and se so much TNT. this is a great video, but if you dont want to see a whale (that is dead) get blown up this isnt for you.
