It just never gets old- Whale Explosion

On November 12, 1970, the Oregon Highway Division consulted with the US Navy and decided the best way to dispose of a whale carcass was to blow it up with a 1/2 ton of dynamite. The explosion caused blubber to rain down on spectators for over a 1/4 of a mile. A large chunk demolished a car.

Interesting facts you may not know

A two-megawatt windmill is made up of 260 tons of steel that required 300 tons of iron ore and 170 tons of coking coal, all mined, transported, and produced by hydrocarbons.

A windmill could spin until it falls apart and never generate as much energy as was invested in building it.

Your silly feel-good dreams are breaking the world economy, while you pat yourself on the back.
