    LOL. Don't you hate it. I swear, 'Open Discussion' is where the majority of points are won and lost, at least from my experience- hell look at my points! I probably know less about boats than most of you guys could recite in ten minutes after a heavy blow to the head:D

    my favourite negative rep was from a similar thread about fisherman shooting seals- that devolved into a climate change debate. Someone sniper'd me with the comment, think you got it backwards Hans:p
    Well, Duh! It was a debate about climate change to which I take one particular side- OF COURSE YOU WOULD THINK I HAVE IT BACKWARDS IF YOU TAKE THE OTHER SIDE!:D
    maybe we should call them 'agreement points', or 'you just got on my nerve points'.;)

    besides, I talk to my girlfreinds cat all the time, and it talks back- bloody thing, drives me crazy.

    My understanding of the "Japanese Dolphin massacre" is that it is not to eat the dolphins but that the dolphins also eat the fish that "swarm" at that time and compete with the Japanese fishermen...

    Danish Travesty

    ...this just arrived in an email

    Denmark is a BIG SHAME – pathetic behaviour of a culture....

    Photo 1
    The sea is stained in red and in the mean while its not because of the climate effects of nature.

    Photo 2
    It's because of the cruelty that the human beings (civilised human) kill hundreds of the famous and intelligent Calderon dolphins.

    Photo 3
    This happens every year in Feroeiland in Denmark . In this slaughter the main participants are young teens. WHY? To show that they are adults and mature.... BULLLLsh

    Photo 4, 5
    In this big celebration, nothing is missing for the fun. Everyone is participating in one way or the other, killing or looking at the cruelty “supporting like a spectator”

    Photo 6, 7 ,8
    They don’t die instantly; they are cut 1, 2 or 3 times with thick hocks. And at that time the dolphins produce a grim extremely compatible with the cry of a new born child.

    But he suffers and there’s no compassion till this sweet being slowly dies in its own blood.

    Photo 9, 10

    Is it necessary to mention that the dolphin calderon, like all the other species of dolphins, it’s near extinction and they get near men to play and interact. In a way of PURE friendship.

    Its enough! We will send this mail until this email arrives in any association defending the animals, we won’t only read. That would make us accomplices, viewers.

    Take care of the world, it is your home!

    I am not sure who started this thread...
    I am Canadian born of Danish and German background...
    I cannot ******* understand this lot...
    I am a pretty tough boatbuilder - I respect a lot of things - this is **** - these ****** ****** have no idea - no thought - nothing - they will never evolve or find ways to co-exist...
    Killing the predator who has evolved into that position is a grand waste of time - and an intrusion on an evolutionary scale..
    Dolphin eats fish - dolphin is in the ******* water - what the **** is he to eat - shall we introduce a nice salad with a grilled steak - WTF - you ignorant *******s...
    This is the most absurd and embarrasing thing I have ever seen to date - as a human being - thank you BE for witness and post - to date - aside from the seal hunt in northern CDN - this should disgust anyone with a 1/4 of a functioning brain...
    Now - I know I am gonna get hit with cow killing - bring it on...

    On Any Level...

    On any level - on any arguement - against any opinion - this is a pathetic and non sustainable response to market cultivation...
    Bottom ******* Line - BFL...
    This is the **** that should go thru the U.N. - as lame as that is - but at least it will be given public report - 'for review'...

    It's just a cultural difference. Those people are uncultured.

    Brian this is an old thread and i agree that it should be "revitalised" from time to time

    If anybody can please explain what the hell is going on there?
    why do they do that?
    and please dont tell me that it goes to waste - that would be horrible
    do they at least process and / or eat the "catch"

    if they are killing for fun, then it is BAD NEWS

    i will forward this info as well

    what is their justification / excuse for their actions?

    the problem is that countries where such things happen are very dependend on fish... there is a whole bunch of people living on fishing...
    nowadays fish have disappeared and _of course_ it was not 'us' overfishing the waters but those bloody predators feeding on OUR prey...

    all those massacres are by far NO old tradition but some quite new 'developements'... (in japan for instance this slatering started in the 30th and was immediately refered to as 'tradition')
    and it is of course a consequence of misguided people who - and that is something every human beeing is doing to a certain extent - are putting the blame ALWAYS on somebody/-thing but NEVER on themselves!

    the numan race is nothing but a bunch of shaved apes - well trained shaved apes and the 'training' we received is called 'culture'... but under this very thin skin we are a bunch of animals...

    homo sapiens is a contradiction in itself and to show that really good off we even name ourself 'homo sapiens SAPIENS'...
    we are by absolutely no means 'wise' but we name us 'wiser than wise'... thats a lot of BS!
