Everyone needed to have seen this coming although, come on guys
Nature has been lashing out in a giant approach for all of 2020 and it’s not slowing down anytime quickly. First the worldwide pandemic, then we acquired hit with a string of loopy climate phenomena, like wildfires raging in California after actually 12,000 lightning strikes and a number of hurricanes on the east coast that have been a hair away from combining into one large hurricane, and now, apparently, even the animals wish to beef.
During the last couple months, sailors alongside the coasts of Spain and Portugal have reported a pod (or pods) of orcas ramming their boats, in some circumstances to the purpose of really breaking off rudders and inflicting damage to the individuals on board — and a crew member considered one of these vessels mentioned the “assaults” felt utterly orca-strated.*
That is undoubtedly my joke and never what another person got here up with on Twitter
Though the proof suggests the orcas are intentionally and methodically beating the hell out of boats, in line with The Guardian, scientists and researchers say it’s too early to know what’s occurring with this “regarding” conduct. Which is, in fact, a crock of shit. I do know precisely what’s occurring and I’ll let you know at no cost proper now.
We fucking suck. We’ve sucked a lot for thus lengthy, and the whales have had sufficient.
Pay attention. It could be a troublesome tablet to swallow but it surely’s the reality. We’ve been destroying the oceans and dumping our shit all around the planet like an 8-year-old with no manners throwing ketchup round a Waffle Home, and we’ve been doing this for, like, some time. People haven’t even been round that lengthy however we’ve been gross just about proper out of the gate (Europeans used to actually throw their poop out their home windows into the streets. That’s who colonized the world. These fucking guys.) and the final couple hundred years have been dominated by industrialization and mega-corporations which have wreaked such unimaginable havok in such a brief period of time, it might virtually be spectacular if it wasn’t, y’know, the destiny of the world at stake. And, on a extra private be aware for the whales, come on — we’ve all seen The Cove and Blackfish.
Identify one good factor we’ve carried out for whales these days. Strive it. You possibly can’t.
So, no, I don’t want to attend for scientists to research the current conduct of orcas, it’s fairly clear. They’re not dumb. Fairly the opposite. We’ve taken all their fish, we put them by goddamn Seaworld, in order that they’ve organized, and now they’re in search of vengeance. The whales are right here to beat the shit out of us. And, truthfully? Good for them. It is a excellent instance of what we’ve dubbed “self care”, and I, for one, congratulate and welcome our new orca overlords.
